    Lyrics

    Joan was quizzical; studied pataphysical
    Science in the home.
    Late nights all alone with a test tube.
    Oh, oh, oh, oh.

    Maxwell Edison, majoring in medicine,
    Calls her on the phone.
    "Can I take you out to the pictures,
    Joa, oa, oa, 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 school again Maxwell plays the fool again.
    Teacher gets annoyed.
    Wishing to avoid and unpleasant
    Sce, e, e, ene,

    She tells Max to stay when the class has gone away,
    So he waits behind
    Writing fifty times "I must not be
    So, o, o, o"

    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 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
    (Maxwell must go free)
    The judge does not agree and he tells them
    So, o, o, o.

    But as the words are leaving his lips,
    A noise comes from behind.

    Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
    Came down upon his head.
    Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
    Made sure that he was dead.

    Whoa, oh, oh, oh.
    Silver hammer man
