Stretchlinks Lyrics: “Charlotte The Dunk Tank Girl”

“Charlotte The Dunk Tank Girl”

Lyrics and Music © 1989 The Stretchlinks

Now Charlotte was a country girl whose figure was ideal. But she was naive and easily persuaded by a smooth-talkin’ carney to don a revealing bikini and sit in the dunk tank near the ring toss.

She thought she was on her way to Hollywood, so she didn’t concern herself with how deep the water was. Besides, no one even bothered to find out if she could swim or not.

Charlotte, Charlotte, Charlotte dunk tank girl.

They say that when Boris Kovatch was repairing track up on the Big Dipper, her transparent specter hovered near the edge of the railing he slipped over.

Some say he was drunk and fell over, but others believe he was pushed and that with his last breath he whispered Charlotte’s name to the crowd that surrounded him.

Charlotte, Charlotte, Charlotte dunk tank girl.

One year later Charlotte’s old boyfriend tried to go through the Tunnel Of Love with a new girl. When they came out the boys arms and legs were torn off, and his heart ripped right out of his body.

The girl must have caught a glimpse of Charlotte, for she was made blind as a bat and stark-raving mad.

Charlotte, Charlotte, Charlotte dunk tank girl.

When a fat redneck sheriff lost all his money at the shooting gallery he decided it was rigged and beat the carney with a blackjack until the carney’s 12-year-old deaf & dumb son panicked and stabbed him in the butt with a pen knife.

The sheriff shot him dead and was then killed by the grief-stricken carny with one of the rifles used to shoot the lead ducks that go around and around and around.

Charlotte, Charlotte, Charlotte dunk tank girl.

No one knows how long Charlotte’s spirit will haunt the carnival. Most seem to think she won’t quit until it’s shut down for good.

So the next time the carnival comes to your town and you feel like going for a cheap thrill, just remember…the thrill you seek could be your last.

Charlotte, Charlotte, Charlotte dunk tank girl.

Charlotte, Charlotte, Charlotte dunk tank girl.

Charlotte, Charlotte, Charlotte dunk tank girl.
