Joan was quizzical studied pataphysical science
Maxwell's Silver Hammer
In the home late night all alone with a test-tube, oh, oh, oh, oh.
Maxwell Edison, majoring in medicine, calls heron the phone,
Can I take you out to the pictures, Joan ?
But as she's getting ready to go, a knock come on the door.
Bang bang Maxwell silver hammer came down upon her head,
Bang bang Maxwell silver hammer made sure she was dead.
Back in school again, Maxwell plays the fool again,
Teacher gets annoyed, wishing to avoid an unpleasant scene,
She tell Max to stay when the class has gone away,
So he waits behind, writing fifty times I must not be so.
But when she turns her back on the boy,
He creeps up from behind.
P. C. thirty one said, we've caught a dirty one,
Maxwell stand 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, oh, oh, oh.
But as the words are leaving his lips
A noise comes from behind
