The Ames Brothers - The naughty Lady of Shady Lane
Tekst en muziek: Sid Tepper en Roy C. Bennett
(1954)






The naughty lady of Shady Lane
Has hit the town like a bomb
The back-fence gossip ain’t been this good
Since Mabel ran off with Tom
Our town was peaceful and quiet
Before she came on the scene
The lady has started a riot
Disturbin’ the suburban routine



The naughty lady of Shady Lane
Has the town in a whirl
The naughty lady of Shady Lane
Me, oh my, oh, what a girl



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"



The naughty lady of Shady Lane
Has the town in a whirl
The naughty lady of Shady Lane
Me, oh my, oh, what a girl



The things they’re trying to pin on her
Won’t hold much water, I’m 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 neighbourhood, stranger
You’re welcome to drop in and see



The naughty lady of Shady Lane
So delightful to hold
The naughty lady of Shady Lane
So delectable
Quite respectable
And she’s only nine days old
