Ladies and gentlemen, we proudly present the true history of the tragic life and triumphant death of Julia Pastrana, the ugliest woman in the world.

We got Siamese twins and sheep with two heads And a boy with the face of a fish. And ghost trains and geeks And the wild child of Borneo. And armless wonders and legless wonders and limbless wonders And parasitic twins. Will wonders never cease? We got mind-readers and Zulu dancers And a man with elastic skin And black girls joined at the hip. Born into slavery When Millie smokes, Christine coughs, When Christine drinks It’s Millie gets tight And no-one can imagine how they make it through the night. There’s a dog-faced boy from Bohemia And a girl with the face of a cat And I’ll guess your age And I’ll guess your weight Your middle name, your star sign And the size of your hat! We got Siamese twins and sheep with two heads And a boy with the face of a fish. And ghost trains and geeks And the wild child of Borneo. And armless wonders and legless wonders and limbless wonders And parasitic twins. Will wonders never cease? We got mind-readers and Zulu dancers And a man with elastic skin And black girls joined at the hip. Born into slavery When Millie smokes, Christine coughs, When Christine drinks It’s Millie gets tight And no-one can imagine how they make it through the night.

La Llorona 02:24
No sé que tienen las flores Llorona, Las flores del camposanto, Que cuando las mueve el viento, Llorona, Parece que están llorando. No sé que tienen las flores Llorona, Las flores del camposanto, Tápame con tu rebozo, Llorona, Porque tengo frío.

Meet me by moonlight alone And then, I will tell you a tale Must be told by the moonlight alone In the grove at the end of the vale You must propose to come for I said I would shew the nightflowers their Queen Nay turn not away thy sweet head ’Tis the lovli est ever was seen Meet me by moonlight alone, Meet me by moonlight alone. Daylight may do for the gay, The thoughtless, the heartless, the free But there’s something about the moon’s sky, That is sweeter to you and to me, Oh! remember be sure to be there For tho’ dearly a moonlight I prize I care not for all in the air If I want the sweet light of your eyes So meet me by moonlight alone, Meet me by moonlight alone.

Cinderella 01:43
Achenputtel war immer mit Schmutz bedeckt Sie wünschte sich trotzdem zum Ball Bevor sie den Prinzen heiraten durfte, musste sie den Linsen aus der Asche abholen, immer glücklich zu leben danach. Cinderella was always dirty but she wanted to go to the ball. She had to pick all the lentils Out of the ashes, before she could Meet the prince and marry happily Ever after.

Wanna know what it’s like to fuck a monster? Wanna know what it’s like to own her heart and soul from the tip of her toes to the top of her hideous head? Wanna know what it’s like to fuck the ugliest woman in the world? Wanna know what it’s like to fuck the dead?

Al jardín de la alegría Quiere mi madre que vaya Por ver si me sale un novio El más bonito de España
