Maxwell's Silver Hammer

Writer, lead vocal: Paul McCartney

 

 

Joan was quizzical, studied pataphysical

Science in the home

Late nights all alone with a test-tube

Ohh-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 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-oo..."

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

 

B.C. Thirty-One said "we caught a dirty one"

Maxwell stands alone

Painting testimonial pictures ohh-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-oo

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
