    I can just hear Tiny Tim singing this modified version of Tiptoe Through the Tulips:

    Tiptoe through the hen house
    By the coop door, that is where I’ll be
    Come tiptoe through the barnyard with me

    Oh, tiptoe from the garden
    By the garden of the willow tree
    And tiptoe through the barnyard with me

    Knee deep in fresh hay we’ll stray
    We’ll keep the showers away
    And if I crow, oh, in the garden, at the dawn break
    Will you pardon me?
    And tiptoe through the barnyard with me

    Original music was written by Joe Burke, and above is a takeoff of the original lyrics by Al Dubin.
