The Museum Song

The Museum Song
from the stage musical Barnum

A Link to an AUDIO performance:

(To be memorized and performed for the class)

Quite a lotta

 Roman terra cotta

 Livin' lava from the flanks of Etna


 Ride a dromedary

 See the Temple tumble and the Red Sea part.


 McNamara's band

 The fattest lady in the land

 A pickled prehistoric hand

 A strand of Pocahontas' hair

 Crow and Sioux

 Who're going to

 Be showing you

 Some rowing through

 A model of the rapids on the Delaware.



 Clever caterpillas

 Reproductions of the Cyclops' ret'na

 Crystal blowing

 Automatic sewing

 Venus on a shell and other works of art.


 Educated fleas

 A tribe of Aborigines

 Two ladies joined across the knees

 A Mona Lisa made of ice


 We've gotten in

 Forgotten spots

 A cotton gin

 A night with Lot in Sodom

 Better see that twice!


 One iguana

 Snakes and other fauna

 Got no bearded lady but we're get'na

 When you duck out

 Take another buck out

 Run around the block And see a

 Run around the block and see a

 Run around the block and see a

 new show start.
