Maxwell's Silver Hammer

Lennon & McCartney

Joan was quizzical studied paraphysical science in the home
Late nights all alone with a testube oh oh oh oh
Maxwell Edison majoring in medicine calls her on the phone
Can I take you out to the pictures Jo-oh ho-oan
But as she's getting ready to go a knock comes on the door
Bang bang Maxwell's silver hammer came down upon her head
Bang bang Maxwell's silver hammer made sure that she was dead

Back in the school again Maxwell plays the fool again teacher gets annoyed
Wishing to avoid an unpleasant sce-ee-ee-ene
She tells Max to stay when the class has gone away so he waits behind
Writing fifty times I must not be so-oh-ho-oan
But when she turns her back on the boy he creeps up from behind
Bang bang Maxwell's silver hammer came down upon her head
Bang bang Maxwell's silver hammer made sure that she was dead

P.C. thirty one said we've caught a dirty one Maxwell stands alone
Painting testimonial pictures oh oh oh oh
Rose and Valerie screaming from the gallery say he must go free
The judge does not agree and he tells them so oh ho-oan
But as the words are leaving his lips a noise comes from behind
Bang bang Maxwell's silver hammer came down upon her head
Bang bang Maxwell's silver hammer made sure that she was dead
Silver hammer man.
