play One Tutu Too Many

from Happy Accidents

Once upon a time
I was on the brink
I was so thirsty
I could hardly think
I ordered a lemonade or two or three or four and then I ordered one more  for the road
They said, "that's one too many."

So I ran
A wanted man
With my lemonade
ONE TOO MANY

To a snazzy little jazz café where they really blew the blues
I used to be a playa so I'd come to pay my dues
I asked them for a solo
They would not give me any
So I grabbed a trumpet TOOT
They said, "that's one toot too many.'

So I ran
A wanted man
With my lemonade
ONE TOO MANY
Trumpet
ONE TOOT TOO MANY

To a theatre  
For a tutu  
To wear as a disguise  
I found several
And they all seemed to fit
To my surprise
I managed to squeeze twenty-two tutus 'round my fanny when the manager burst in and said, "that's one  tutu too many."

So I ran
A wanted man  
With my lemonade
ONE TOO MANY
Trumpet
ONE TOOT TOO MANY
Tutus
ONE TUTU TOO MANY

To a tattoo parlor 'cause all this stuff was hot  
I said, "can you tattoo a two on to everything I've got?"
He did the lemonade, the trumpet, and twenty-one tutus  
plenty
But the twenty-second tutu there was "one tutu tattoo too many."

So I ran
A wanted man
With my lemonade
ONE TOO MANY
Trumpet
ONE TOOT TOO MANY
Tutus
ONE TUTU TOO MANY
Tattoos
ONE TUTU TATTOO TOO MANY

To a Transylvanian boxing match
To try the ol' 'one-two'
I jumped into the ring
He hit me
One-two-two-two-two-two
I said "I vant to von-two-two-two too"
" you vant to whvat?"
"I vant to von-two-two-two-two-two too
he said, "that's von vant to two-two-two-two . . . two too many."

So I ran
A wanted man
With my lemonade
ONE TOO MANY
Trumpet
ONE TOOT TOO MANY
Tutus
ONE TUTU TOO MANY
Tattoos
ONE TUTU TATTOO TOO MANY
Boxing match
ONE VANT TO VON-TWO-TWO-TWO-TWO . . . TWO TOO MANY!
