Lyrics

Hoodlum Wife

Every night about four o’clock
I dream I hear the Policeman knock
Lookin’ for my hoodlum wife
Lookin’ for my hoodlum wife

She’ll say to him please come inside
Pick up a broom and she’ll tan his hide
My no-good hoodlum wife
My no-good hoodlum wife

A Lady criticised her clothes
She blacked her eyes and she broke her nose
My no-good hoodlum wife
My no-good hoodlum wife

The barman told her no more gin
She rattled his brains with a rolling pin
My no-good hoodlum wife
My no-good hoodlum wife

Cops tried to take her down to jail
She beat then of f with a garbage pail
My no-good hoodlum wife
My no-good hoodlum wife

Her lawyer told her just keep calm
She shook his hand and she broke his arm
My no-good hoodlum wife
My no-good hoodlum wife

Rattlem, battlem knock ‘em down
Hoollum doodlum all round town
Rattlem, battlem knock ‘em down
On Down

She told the Judge you can’t rule me
The only law I obey is gravity
My no-good hoodlum wife
My no-good hoodlum wife

Now I believe that when she said
If she didn’t love me I would be dead
My no-good hoodlum wife
My no-good hoodlum wife
