A Caribbean version (Talbot)
The Mighty Sparrow - *Tattooed Lady* NATIONAL NLP 5515 c.1966

Now listen to my story boys, I need your sympathy
That big fat Tattooed gal in the circus, fell in love with me
And to prove her love was sweet as sugar cane... Tralee!
She had my picture tattooed on her body.

She had the landing of the pilgrims on her shoulder
And on her back she had the sunset of the west
And right beside her dimpled knees is the great big apple trees
And the pyramids look lovely on her chest
When she decided that she`d like to add my picture
She simply couldn`t find a vacant spot you see
So she tattooed my poor face in the most peculiar place
Now whenever that gal sit down she sit down on me
Whenever that gal sit down she sit down on me

She has a lovely blue gardenia by her elbow
And on her hips she has the lovely queen of may
And right beside her shapely spine if you see that pal of mine
You will see the famous road to Mandalay
She has a rusty hinge that`s tattooed on her knee cap
It looks so real it squeaks each time she bends her knee
But she filled me with disgrace where she tattooed my poor face
Now whenever that gal sit down she sits on me...poor me!
Whenever that gal sit down she sit down on me

Now do you wonder why I look so sad and worried
Do you wonder why I`m feeling mighty low
I would like to take a chance and give her one kick in the pants
But if I do I`ll only kick myself I know
Only time that anyone can see my picture
Is when that big fat tattoo gal take a bath ...oh gee!
I get black and blue of course any time she rides a horse
For whenever that gal sit down she sits on me
Oh, whenever that gal sit down she sits down on me.
