"Lydia the Tattooed Lady"

I first encountered this recording on the radio back in the early 1960s. Once heard, never forgotten. 

It is part of the Marx Brothers 1939 movie, At the Circus, and the singer is, of course, Groucho Marx.

Robin Williams does a great version of the song in The Fisher King (1991), but for tonight, we're sticking with Groucho.
