FANNY OF TRAPANI

FANNY OF TRAPANI
Song
Cpl. F. D. Conner
in PUPTENT POETS by the Stars and Stripes, p. 4.

Here is a second song that capitalized on the popularity of “Gertie” as the North African campaign became the Sicilian campaign.

Cf. also STELLA THE BELLE OF FEDELA

Rumor has it “Dirty Gertie,”
Whom you knew in old Bizerte,
Has a sister in Trapani [Sicily]
By the name of Filthy Fanny.
She is Gertie’s black-sheep sister,
No man yet has ever kissed her,
Though her friends have never told her
Awful is her body odor.
What a frightful-looking creature!
Badly formed in every feature!
When she ran for “Miss Latrine,”
The judges cried for Atabrine.
Fellows, now that you’re in Trapani,
Be on the watch for “Filthy Fanny.”
