Disobedience re-visited

[James James Morrison Morrison Wetherby George Dupree]

James James

Morrison Morrison

Wetherby George Dupree

Set out to look for his mother

Although he was only three.

James James thought that his mother,

Might be easy to see

If he only went down

To the end of the town

As soon as he'd had his tea.

###

James James

Morrison Morrison

Packed an exploring kit

He packed a coat and a compass

And chocolate [quite a bit].

James James knew that his mother

Needed a lot of care

He couldn't go down

To the end of the town

Without some chocolate to share.

###

James James

Morrison Morrison

Wetherby George Dupree

Spoke to the king of the criminals

And terribly stern was he.

James James spoke of his mother

He pointed a finger free

"If you know where she is down

The end of the town

You'd better tell it to me."

###

The king of all the bandits

Meekly nodded his head

He led James to a nightclub

And wide his arms he spread.

"I didn't make her do it

She's playing at cards and dice

That's why she came down

To the end of the town

She's the victim of secret vice."

###

James James

Morrison Morrison

Didn't pause or stay

He went to his mother's table

And knocked all her chips away.

James James said to his mother

"Mother" he said, said he

"You don't need to come down

To the end of the town

You can always gamble with me."

###

James James

Morrison's mother

Meekly came home with him

James James Morrison's mother

Cried and called him 'Jim'

James James made his plans

And changed his surname to Bond

His mother now runs the Casino Royale

And is mostly peroxide blond.
