    1. Walking women want to see
      The Southern Cross at night
      And so they set aside a sock
      And tie their laces tight


    2. Yes mournful is the melody
      That echoes in their heads
      Without a beat they march along
      Believing Bach is dead
      Bach is dead


    3. Think about how many times
      I have fallen
      Spirits are using me
      larger voices callin’.
      What heaven brought you and me
      Cannot be forgotten.
      I have been around the world,
      Lookin’ for that woman/girl,
      Who knows love can endure.
      And you know it will.
      And you know it will.
      When you see the Southern Cross
      For the first time
      You understand now
      Why you came this way
      ‘Cause the truth you might be runnin’ from
      Is so small.


    4. Dress me like a big banana,
      serve me lashings of ice cream,
      spread out in a panarama
      vistas from a naughty dream,
      beat me soundly with a kipper
      in a wobbly aspic mould,
      flapping like a porpoise flipper,
      till I’m slippery to hold;

      I’m a dish to serve with crumpet,
      served up slowly with a grin,
      I’m a rare, rumbustious strumpet,
      I’m a tonic served with sin.


    5. Oh I do like to be beside the seaside,
      oh I do like to be beside the seeeeeeeeeeea!


    6. Guys, I wasn’t looking at this picture directly, and just assumed that guy was King Kong.


    7. Well, I’m a jitterbug boy
      By the shoe-shine
      Resting on my laurels and my Hardy’s too

      Life of Riley on a swing shift
      Gears follow my drift
      Once upon a time I was in show-biz too

      I seen the Brooklyn Dodgers playin’ at Ebbets Field
      Seen the Kentucky Derby too
      It’s fast women, slow horses, I’m reliable sources
      And I’m holding up a lamp post if you want to know

      I seen the Wabash Cannonball
      Buddy I’ve done it all

      Because I slept with the lions
      And Marilyn Monroe
      Had breakfast in the eye of a hurricane
      Fought Rocky Marciano
      Played Minnesota Fats
      Burned hundred-dollar bills, I eaten Mulligan stew
      Got drunk with Louis Armstrong
      What’s that old song?
      I taught Mickey Mantle everything that he knows

      So you ask me what I’m doing here
      Holding up a lamp post
      Flippin’ this quarter trying to make up my mind
      If it’s heads I’ll go to Tennessee
      Tails I’ll buy a drink
      If it lands on the edge I’ll keep talking to you


    8. @zondron: Blasphemy. That is *not* batman. Does that look like Gotham to you?… Wait… Actually… Nevermind…
