Lyrics

Josephine

Jo-Josephine
I guess you could say she was a queen
But I could not understand
Why she married that drinking man
Boy was he mean to Josephine

Jo-Josephine
She married Bill when she was only a teen
Deep inside he was a mouse
Beat her up in her father's own house
He made too many scenes with Josephine

Chorus:
You want to tell her that you love her so
Even though she already said no
I guess that's the way it's gotta be
She just had to be free

And so you tell her that you'll see her around
Even though she's from another part of town
You won't be feeling very keen
If you never see her again--Josephine

Jo-Josephine
Her daddy used to be a Marine
He caught Bill one fine day
He said, "see her again and I'll blow you away"
You'll not come between me and Josephine

Spoken: "And don't come back!'

Instrumental break

Chorus:
You want to tell her that you love her so
Even though she already said no
I guess that's the way it's gotta be
She just had to be free

And so you tell her that you'll see her around
Even though she's from another part of town
You won't be feeling very keen
If you never see her again--Josephine

Josephine
Now she's no longer feeling green
Just bought a co-op, she's living alone
Likes her TV and talking on the phone
She's tough and she's lean, Josephine

Josephine, etc. (repeat and fade).
