Lyrics Edit

Skinny was born in a bathtub
And grew so incredibly thin
That even the end of an eyedropper sucked him in
Skinny never knew any questions
Skinny never looked at lights
But Skinny sold something every single night
Skinny sold a soldier to me
Skinny sold a wife 
Skinny sold a suction cup and a knife
Skinny found a "Hello Dolly" record in the hall
He sold it to a truck driver in the fall
Hello, Dolly
Hello, Dolly
Hello, Dolly
