A horribly snooty star singer
Puts poor blonde haired mute through the wringer
Rodolfo Lassparri
Is awfully sorry
When floored by a brutal bell-ringer.

In A Night at the Opera (Sam Wood; 1935), Tomasso (Harpo) knocks out his physically abusive boss, tenor Lassparri (Walter Woolf King). Title by off-coloratura Donald B. Benson.
