Joan was quizzical, studied metaphysical science in the home,
late nights all alone with a test-tube, 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/*his] head
Bang, bang, Maxwell's silver hammer made sure that [she/*he] was dead.
Back in school again Maxwell plays the fool again, teacher gets annoyed,
wishing to avoid an unpleasant sce-e-e-ene
She tells Max to stay when the class has gone away, so he waits behind,
writing 50 times "I must not be so-o-o."
But when she turns her back on the boy, he creeps up from behind.
B.C. Thirty-One said, we caught a dirty one, Maxwell stands alone,
painting testimonial pictures, 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-o-o.
But as the words are leaving his lips, a noise comes from behind.
