Comeback Kid ch.8Artist's CommentsChapter VIII~The curious case of the song, the disappearing dress and the wooden eye~The one calling himself Sybil had noted that no matter how easily wound up his young associate was, he always seemed to bounce back immediately like a mad little spring. He was now, inexplicably, in the middle of a spirited song-and-dance number (using the sack of money, onto which he had drawn a face, as a dance partner).When that shark bites with his teeth, dear,Scarlet billows start to spread,Fancy gloves though, has old MacHeath babe,So theres never a trace of red
