Bunkum's Travelling Show-1936
  Regal Zonophone MR2295 Gifford/Cliffe 

Theres a big show down in the town, circus and zoo combined.
Horses there with two legs in front and some with three legs behind.
When Lady Godiva rode round she was mobbed
She showed us too much cause her hair had been bobbed

At Bunkums Travelling Show you ought to go some time
Such wonderful freaks Mr. Bunkum has got
His wife I declare is the worst of the lot.
Walk up, hurry along, walk up with your dough.

The bearded lady wanders about,
To see her beard youd say without doubt.
Shed swallowed a horse and left the tail hanging out
Down at Bunkums Travelling Show.

At Bunkums Travelling Show you ought to go some time
To see the snake charmer I paid one and four
She commenced charming me, That cost half a quid more
Walk up, Hurry along, Walk up with your dough

The tattooed lady shows to her friends
A tattooed rainbow downwards it bends
Ive seen where it starts, Im going to see where it ends
Down at Bunkums Travelling Show.

At Bunkums Travelling Show you ought to go down there
A girl in a trance so peacefully sleeps
She was hit with a brick and shes in it for keeps
Walk up, Hurry along, Walk up with your dough

The giantess, A woman of might
Married Tom Thumb and she hooked him all right
And he hasnt been seen since his honeymoon night
Down at Bunkums Travelling Show.
