Doodles Weaver: The Man on the Flying Trapeze

I didn't want the month of May to go by without noting the contributions of Doodles Weaver to the arts of cutup and twisted delivery.  When he was with Spike Jones, he'd deconstruct popular songs; rendering them a tangle of spoonerisms and heinous puns, apparently all ad-libbed.

One of these was preserved, and I offer it to the intrepid listener:  an audio high-wire act based on The Man on the Flying Trapeze.
