There were gamblers, drunks, and n*****s
And a minstrel man who danced
Singing gals from Longanore
Imported straight from France
or
There were gamblers, drunks, and beggars
And a maestro man who danced
Singing gals from Longanore
Imported straight from France
or
There were gamblers, trucks, and thinkers
And a minstrel man who danced
Singing gals from Longanore
Imported straight from France
or
There were gamblers, trunks, and thinkers
And a menstrual man who danced
Singing gals from Longanore
Imported straight from France.
Original Lyrics:
There were gamblers, crooks, and fakers
And a minstrel man who danced
Singing gal, Simone l'Amour
Imported straight from France.
