D                   B7
Joan was quizzical; studied pataphysical
Em
Science in the home.
A7
Late nights all alone with a test tube.
D           A 
Oh, oh, oh, oh.

Maxwell Edison, majoring in medicine,
Em
Calls her on the phone.
A7
"Can I take you out to the pictures,
D           A 
Jo, oa, oa, an?"


[Chorus]
E7
But as she's getting ready to go,
  A7
A knock comes on the door.

D
Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
     E7
Came down upon her head.
A7
Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer
     Em        A7      D
Made sure that she was dead.

Back in school again Maxwell plays the fool again.

Wishing to avoid an unpleasant

Sce, E, E, ene,

D                     B7       
She tells Max to stay when the class has gone away,

So he waits behind
A7
Writing fifty times "I must not be

So, o, o, o.."


[Chorus]
    E7
But when she turns her back on the boy,
   A7
He creeps up from behind.

Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
     E7
Came down upon her head.
A7
Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer
     Em        A7      D
Made sure that she was dead.

P. C. Thirty-one said, "We caught a dirty one."

Maxwell stands alone
A7
Painting testimonial pictures.
D           A 
Oh, oh, oh, oh.

D                 B7
Rose and Valerie, screaming from the gallery
Em
Say he must go free
    A7
The judge does not agree and he tells them
D         A
So, o, o, o.

But as the words are leaving his lips,
A7
A noise comes from behind.

Came down upon his head.

Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Em             A7     D
Made sure that he was dead. (Wha-oh-a-oh-a-oh)
