Maxwell's Silver Hammer

Lennon/McCartney

 DB7Em
 Joan was quizzical, studied pataphysical science in the home,
 A7DA
 late night all alone with a test tube, oh, oh, oh, oh.
 DB7Em
 Maxwell Edison, majoring in medicine, calls her on the phone.
 A7DA
 Can I take you out to the pictures, Jo-o-o-oan?
 E7A7
But, as she's getting ready to go, a knock comes from the door:

 DE7
 Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer came down upon her head.
 A7EmA7D
 Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer made sure that she was dead.

 DB7Em
 Back in school again, Maxwell plays the fool again, teacher gets annoyed.
 A7DA
 Wishing to avoid an unpleasant sce-e-e-ene.
 DB7
 She tells Max to stay when the class has gone away,
 EmA7DA
 so he waits behind. Writing fifty times "I must not be so-o-o-o.
 E7A7
But, when she turns her back on the boy, he creeps up from behind:

Chorus:
 DE7
 Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer came down upon her head.
 A7EmA7D
 Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer made sure that she was dead.

 DB7Em
 P.C. thirtyone said "We've caught a dirty one.", Maxwell stands alone.
 A7DA
 Painting testimonial pictures, oh, oh, oh, oh.
 DB7Em
 Rose and Valerie, screaming from the gallery, say he must go free.
 A7DA
 The judge does not agree. And he tells them so-o-o-o.
 E7A7
But, as the words are leaving his lips, a noise came from behind:

Chorus:
 DE7
 Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer came down upon her head.
 A7EmA7D
 Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer made sure that she was dead.
