ALLENTOWN JAIL Irving Gordon Lita Roza w Ted Heath & his Music rec 1951 They've locked up my darlin' in Allentown jail, oo-oo-oo-ooh, And no-one has come forth to put up his bail, oo-oo-oo-ooh, They say at the courthouse he'll never go free, never go free, 'Cause he stole a diamond, a beautiful diamond, to give to me. Somewhere in Allentown jail, My heart waits in Allentown jail. I'll dance for you mister, I'll sing you a song, la-da-da-da, But more than that mister, would surely be wrong, mm-mm-mm-mm. Oh more than that mister, would surely be wrong, for can't you see My love stole a diamond, a beautiful diamond, to give, to give to me? Somewhere in Allentown jail, My heart waits in Allentown jail. You'll find none like him though you search the world round, oo-oo-oo-ooh, And that's why I'll need the best lawyer in town, oo-oo-oo-ooh. I must find a lawyer, the best one in town, for can't you see My love stole a diamond, a beautiful diamond, to prove his love for me? Somewhere in Allentown jail.
