I took my little Jenny to a party last night At ten o'clock it ended in a heckuva fight When someone hit my Jenny she went out like a light Poor Jenny And then some joker went and called the cops on the phone So everybody scattered out for places unknown I couldn't carry Jenny so I left her alone Poor Jenny Well Jenny had her picture in the paper this mornin' She made it with a bang Accordin' to the story in the paper this mornin' Jenny is the leader of a teenage gang Jenny has a brother and he's hot on my trail Her daddy wants to ride me out of town on a rail I hope I'll be around when Jenny gets out of jail Poor Jenny I went downtown to see her, she was locked in a cell She wasn't very glad to see me, that I could tell In fact, to tell the truth, she wasn't lookin' too well Poor Jenny Her eye was black, her face was red, her hair was a fright She looked as though she'd been a'cryin' half of the night I told her I was sorry, she said "Get out of sight" Poor Jenny It seems a shame that Jenny had to go get apprehended, a heckuva fate This party was the first one she ever had attended It had to happen on our very first date Jenny has a brother and he's hot on my trail Her daddy wants to ride me out of town on a rail I hope I'll be around when Jenny gets out of jail Poor Jenny
