All right, boys, we'll go ahead with "Johnny And Jane"

Old Aunt Jane, she's a-long and tall
She run down the street like a cannonball
Johnny won't allow no low-down hangin' around

Run old Jane through the picket fence
The boys haven't saw ol' Aunt Jane since
Johnny won't allow no low-down hangin' around

She run around the courthouse square
The cops run out, they hollered her there
Johnny won't allow no low-down hangin' around

Took her 'fore the judge, to give her a trial
You oughta saw Jane, a-wallin' her eyes
Johnny won't allow no low-down hangin' around

Judge looked at Jane, right through his specs
"Guess, Aunt Jane, your time's comin' next"
Johnny won't allow no low-down hangin' around

Judge passed the sentence, the jury looked around
"Old Aunt Jane, you're Moundsville bound"
Johnny won't allow no low-down hangin' around

Judge said to th' sheriff, "Take her on to jail
Be darn sure not to allow her any bail"
Johnny won't allow no low-down hangin' around

That night, about twelve o'clock
Old Aunt Jane broke the jailhouse lock
Johnny won't allow no low-down hangin' around

Called all the cops, they into town
Old Aunt Jane, she can't be found
Johnny won't allow no low-down hangin' around
