Maxwell's Silver Hammer ( Beatles )

D B7 Em
Joan was quizzical, studied pataphysical science in the home,
A7 D A
late night all alone with a test tube, oh, oh, oh, oh.
D B7 Em
Maxwell Edison, majoring in medicine, calls her on the phone.
A7 D A
Can I take you out to the pictures, Jo-o-o-o-an?
E7 A7
But, as she's getting ready to go, a knock comes from the door:


Chorus:
D E7
Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer came down upon her head.
A7 Em A7 D/ A/ D/
Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer made sure that she was dead.

D, Gbm, Bm, A, G, D/ A/ D/

D B7 Em
Back in school again, Maxwell plays the fool again, teacher gets annoyed.
A7 D A
Wishing to avoid an unpleasant sce-e-e-ene.
D B7
She tells Max to stay when the class has gone away,
Em A7 D A
so he waits behind. Writing fifty times "I must not be so-o-o-o.
E7 A7
But, when she turns her back on the boy, he creeps up from behind:

Chorus

D, Gbm, Bm, A, G, D/ A/ D/

D B7 Em
P.C. thirty one said "We've caught a dirty one.", Maxwell stands alone.
A7 D A
Painting testimonial pictures, oh, oh, oh, oh.
D B7 Em
Rose and Valerie, screaming from the gallery, say he must go free.
A7 D A
The judge does not agree. And he tells them so-o-o-o.
E7 A7
But, as the words are leaving his lips, a noise came from behind:

Chorus

D Gbm Bm A G D/ A/ D/
