Nick Reynolds/Bob Shane/John Stewart

We came to town to see that old tattooed lady. She was a sight to see, tattooed from head to knee.
My uncle Ned was there. He came to gape and stare. "I've never!" he declared, "Seen such a freak so fair."

And on her jaw was the Royal Flying Corp and on her back was the Union Jack, now could you ask for more?
All up and down her spine marched the Queen's own guards in line and all around her hips sailed a fleet of battleships.

And over her left kidney was a bird's eye view of Sidney but what we liked best was upon her chest
My little home in Waikiki! (What did you say?) (Repeat all lines)
