Lyrics Brecht, music and some additional lyrics Mark Nichols


When pretty Miss Fatbottom Wed
A rich man with no teeth in his head
They inquired, "is it fun?"
She replied, "No it's none,
So I sleep with a candle instead."

There once was a girl from Moscow
Who worked as a milkman's house frau
And when he would dream, he'd rise up like cream
And he'd have to be milked like a cow

There once was pretty young lass
Who took as a husband an ass
On the wedding night he
Asked if she liked donkey
With a smile she said, "No sir, I'll pass"
