Just for Fun: Lydia the Tattooed Lady

Just for fun! 

“Ah Lydia, she was the most gloooorious creature under the sun!”

I remember loving this clip ever since I was a little kid… just one of many magical musical moments from the Marx Brothers… Groucho Marx singing “Lydia the Tattooed Lady” from At the Circus.

Lydia the Tattooed Lady (music by Harold Arlen; lyrics by E.Y. Harburg) from At the Circus (1939, director Edward Buzzell)


“Oh Lydia oh Lydia that encyclopedia. Oh Lydia the champ of them all. She once swept an admiral clear off his feet. The ships on her hips made his heart skip a beat. And now the old boy’s in command of the fleet — for he went and married Lydia!”
