"Fugue for Tinhorns" is a song Frank Sinatra recorded for Reprise Records in 1963.[1]

The song was performed during the show Guys and Dolls, and was performed by not only Sinatra, but also Dean Martin and Bing Crosby.

In 1963, this song was later released as a single with "The Oldest Established (Permanent Floating Crap Game in New York)" as its B-side. Neither of these songs charted, however.

Lyrics Edit

I got the horse right here, the name is Paul Revere.
And here's a guy that says that if all weather's clear,
Can do, can do, this guy says the horse can do.
If he says the horse can do, can do, can do.
I picked the Valentine, cause on the Morning Line,
The guy has got em figured at five to nine
But take the Epitaph, he went to buy a half,
He's got it cold in here in the Telegraph.
About Rivera's fight, I guess the sport's alright
Suppose it all depends if it rained last night.
I know it's Valentine, the morning works were fine
You know the jockey's brother is a friend of mine
But just a minute, boys, I got the feedback's choice,
It says the great grandfather was Aqua Poise.
I give you Paul Revere, and it's no bum steer
It's from a man right here that's real sincere
I picked my Valentine cause on the Morning Line
The guy has got em figured at five to nine
But take the Epitaph, he went to buy a half,
He's got it cold in here in the Telegraph.
Epitaph, Valentine, Paul Revere, I got the horse right here.
