As recorded by THE MILLS BROTHERS: Just a kid named Joe What his second name is, I don't know He sells the daily papers So I buy all my papers from a kid named Joe Let it rain or snow He will greet you with a bright "Hello" "Hello, Mister, here's your papers" So I buy all my papers from a kid named Joe He keeps hustlin' away, hustlin' all day There's work to be done and no time to play "Extra! Extra! Read the latest news" There's a smile on his face that's a cure for the blues Just a kid named Joe Makes this world a better place, I know And he sells the daily papers So I buy all my papers from a kid named Joe (I'm a kid named Joe) (What my second name is, I really don't know) (I just sell the daily papers) And I buy all my papers from this kid named Joe (Let it rain or let it snow) (I will greet you with a bright "Hello") ("Hello, Mister, here's your papers") And so I buy all my papers from this kid named Joe (Just a kid named Joe) You make this world a better place, I know (I just sell the daily papers) And I buy all of my papers from this kid named Joe ******************** As recorded by AL HIBBLER: Just a kid named Joe What his second name is, I don't know But he sells the daily papers And I buy all my papers from this kid named Joe Let it rain or let it snow He will greet you with a bright "Hello" "Hello, Mister, here's your papers" And I buy all my papers from this kid named Joe Ev'ry penny he makes helps a lot To take care of Mom, he's all she's got "Extra!, Extra!", hustlin' all he can For Mummy depends on her little man Just a kid named Joe Makes this world a better place, I know For he sells the daily papers And I buy all my papers from this kid named Joe (Instrumental Break) Ev'ry penny he makes helps a lot To take care of Mom, he's all she's got "Extra!, Extra!", hustlin' all he can For Mummy depends on her little man Just a kid named Joe Makes this world a better place I know For he sells the daily papers And I buy all my papers from this kid named Joe ******************** SELDOM HEARD INTRODUCTORY VERSES: Whenever I'm downhearted and ev'rything seems wrong I always hurry to a certain street Though I may be downhearted, it doesn't last for long I always feel much better when I meet........ Ev'ry day you'll find him Standing right in the same old place He's got a late edition of the news He's always there to serve you......... (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2014)
