AND THE GREAT BIG SAW CAME NEARER AND NEARER (Peggy Lee / Paul Weston) Spike Jones & his City Slickers - 1944 (Vocal: Del Porter & The Boys in the Back Room) Now he was a saw mill proprietor And she, a fair maid yet unkissed One evening he winked his glass eye at her Then she said "Nay, nay sir, desist So he dragged her into the saw mill, poor wench And he took off his belt and strapped her to the bench And the great big saw came nearer and nearer And nearer and nearer and nearer "Be my wife or you will be cut in two" Said the villain to poor little Vera But she said "Nay, Nay, though you cut me in twain The angels will stick me together again" And the great big saw came nearer and nearer And nearer and nearer and nearer The villainous saw mill proprietor Stood there with a sinister sneer He should have done something to quiet her (Scream) For outside her sweetheart drew near "Oh someone please save me" was poor Vera's cry And our hero rushed in with a gleam in his eye And the great big saw came nearer and nearer And nearer and nearer and nearer "Be my wife or you will be cut in two" Said the villain to poor little Vera But she said "Nay, Nay, though you've money in banks I wouldn't wed you if you cut me in planks" And the great big saw came nearer and nearer And nearer and nearer and nearer Her sweetheart dashed up with a cry at her "Oh save me my darling" she sighed He knocked out that mean old proprietor And carried his sweetheart outside "My hero" she said as they paused for a kiss "We must wed and prevent situations like this" So their wedding day came nearer and nearer And nearer and nearer and nearer Wedding bells, ding-dong, our hero XXX XXX While he married his beautiful Vera But soon tired of marriage she said "Listen here For goodness sakes, next time please don't interfere" When the great big saw comes nearer and nearer And nearer and nearer(Sawing sounds, Scream & Thud) And nearer.
