Google is your friend. Or not.

Two dead boys (My favorite poem of all time!)

Ladies and gentleman skinny and scout
I'll tell you a tale I know nothing about
The admission is free so pay at the door
Now pull out a chair and sit on the floor

On one bright day in the middle of the night
Two dead boys got up to fight
Back to back they faced each other
Drew their swords and shot each other

The blind man came to see fair play
The mute man came to shout hooray
The deaf policeman heard the noise
And came to stop those two dead boys

He lived on the corner in the middle of the block
In a two story house on a vacant lot
A man with no legs came walking by
And kicked the lawman in his thigh

He crashed through a wall without making a sound
Into a dry creek bed and suddenly drowned
A long black hearse came to cart him away
But he ran for his life and is still gone today

I watched from the corner of the table
The only eyewitness to facts of my fable
If you doubt my lies are true
Just ask the blind man, he saw it too


Somehow I suspect that "ladies and gentleman skinny and scout" was "ladies and gentlemen skinny and stout" Before too long a change here, a change there, and the original creator wouldn't recognize his own work! I see this with lyrics of songs too which I often look up especially when I see questionable phrases. Google often isn't anybody's friend!

Cool to see this longer version, but I first heard a version closer to what Korsakoff posted. Only heard it once about 40 years ago. Always remembered it. For me, this is how it goes.

One bright day in the middle of the night

Back to back they faced each other
They drew their swords and shot each other

A deaf policeman heard the noise
He came and killed the two dead boys
If you don't believe this story is true
Ask the blind man, he saw it too

I grew up in Maryland. Pretty much the same as his "Mississippi" version.

So I saw a couple of TwistedTea™ jokes go by and I really didn't understand them. I had seen the original video where it was a primary player but I had failed to note its identity. Now I understand. But to be true to the source, its use should involve someone really, really, really asking for it.

Post a link. The whole Twisted Tea thing is something I’m not familiar with. Note that I watch zero commercials. I find them offensive.

Dead kennedys at a stadium is unheard-of, Imo.
It was the first Rob Zombie- Marilyn Manson tour, great show. Chevelle, and a bunch of good bands opened. I loaded my two and most of the nieces and nephews in a van. Road trip! The DKs were the best band there. MM did a cover of a Eurythmics song, one of the best pieces of music ever created. Zombie did his thing, it was a blast.
