Last night, I attended a murder mystery party for my friend Kath. I wrote the script for the party and I have to say that the whole night was a pretty big success. The theme was “Murder at the Circus”, and my character was Lydia the Tattooed Lady. I have to say, that I had an awesome time. Getting ready took approximately four hours, but it was totally worth it. Here is the finished product:
Lydia, Oh Lydia, Say have you met Lydia?
Lydia the tattooed lady.
She has eyes that folks adore so,
And a torso even more so
When her robe is unfurled she can show you the world
If you step up and tell her where,
For a dime you can see Kankakee or Paris
Or Washington crossing the Delaware
Come along and see Buffalo Bill with his Lasso
Just another classic by Mendel Picasso
Here is Captain Spaulding exploring the amazon
Over here’s Godiva but with her pyjamas on.
Oh Lydia Oh Lydia,
Oh Lydia the Queen of tattoos
When Her muscles start relaxing
Up the hill comes Andrew Jackson
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
“Cause he went and married Lydia!
I had a great time. Thanks for inviting me Kath!
