The Naughty Lady of Shady LaneWords & Music by Sid Tepper & Roy Bennett
Recorded by The Ames Brothers, 1954 (#3)
Refrain: Em B7 The naughty lady of Shady Lane Em Has the town in a whirl; B7 The naughty lady of Shady Lane... Em Me oh my, oh what a girl! Em B7 The naughty lade of Shady Lane Em Has hit the town like a bomb; B7 The back fence gossip ain't been this good Em Since Mable ran off with Tom. G D7 Our town was peaceful and quiet G Before she came on the scene; Am Em The lady has started a riot, F# B7 Disturbin' the suburban routine. Repeat Refrain: You should see how she carries on With her admirers galore; She must be givin' them quite a thrill, The way they flock to her door. She throws those come-hither glances At every Tom, Dick, and Joe; When offered some liquid refreshment, The lady never never says "no." Repeat Refrain: The things they're trying to pin on her Won't hold much water, for sure; Beneath the powder and fancy lace, There beats a heart sweet and pure. She just needs someone to change her, And she'll be nice as can be; If you're in the neighborhood, stranger, You're welcome to drop in and see E The naughty lady of Shady Lane B7 So delightful to hold; The naught lady of Shady Lane B7 She's delectable, quite respectable, F#m7 B7 E And she's only nine days old!
