Tiny Tim (Herbert B Khaury, 1932-1996), was an American singer. He was well known as the ukulele player with the high falsetto voice,and long curly hair. In 1969, he married ‘Miss Vicki’ on one of the first televised weddings. It was on “The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson”. I remember seeing this on TV. His best known and signature song is called “Tiptoe Through the Tulips”. It is very unusual, and memorable.

A fun fact: I once drew a huge poster of him, that was hung up in our high school cafeteria, during a special senior carnival event. On the picture of him, I wrote ‘Tiny Tim Loves You’. haha…actually everyone liked it.

Here’s Tiny Tim singing “Tiptoe Through the Tulips”

“Tiptoe Through the Tulips”, as performed by Tiny Tim, was a song written in 1929, by Joe Burke and Al Dubin.

Tiptoe through the window
By the window, that is where I’ll be
Come tiptoe through the tulips with me

Oh, tiptoe from the garden
By the garden of the willow tree
And tiptoe through the tulips with me

Knee deep in flowers we’ll stray
We’ll keep the showers away
And if I kiss you in the garden, in the moonlight
Will you pardon me?
And tiptoe through the tulips with me

(Tongue clicking solo)

Knee deep in flowers we’ll stray
We’ll keep the showers away
And if I kiss you in the garden, in the moonlight
Will you pardon me?
And tiptoe through the tulips with me
