The Lyrics

While perusing Rock and Roll Babylon a few days ago, I came across the old scandle about Jerry Lee Lewis and his marriage to his 13-year old cousin Myra. And it cried out for a parody....
Jerry was a young man
He had some hits of Gold
Toured 9 in 12
And he worked the iv'ries oh so bold

Just merely down-south rules
Came from that Louisian'
Taught there get hitched young
And to keep it in the fam

Had lots of money
And a stately home
No balked at consanguinity when he sought out matrimon'
And now it's

13 and wife he got 'er
13 and wife - good show!
Your bride is prime 'cus she's
13 and wife you know

13 and wife he got 'er
13 and wife - oh no!
Decried as crime 'cus she's
13 and wife you know

Reviled in the Press sheets
Those Brits were really mean
The vitriol kept coming
'Cus they said it was obscene

Desired himself a clencher
He found a child one
He married Myra
'Kissing cousins' are such fun!

Bang bang chat her up
Such message that it sends
Ain't no use in crying 'cus it's all just relative
And now it's

13 and wife he got 'er
13 and wife - good show!
Your bride is prime 'cus she's
13 and wife you know

13 and wife he got 'er
13 and wife - oh no!
Decried as crime 'cus she's
13 and wife you know

"Young 'uns make good tuppin'" - it caught Jer in a 'mire'
He threw that caution to the wind - that child blew Great Balls of Fire

13 and wife he got 'er
13 and wife - good show!
Your bride is prime 'cus she's
13 and wife you know

13 and wife he got 'er
13 and wife - oh no!
Decried as crime 'cus she's
13 and wife you know
