LIZZIE BORDEN Chad Mitchell Trio Yesterday in old Fall River, Mr. Andrew Borden died, And they got his daughter Lizzie on a charge of homicide Some folks say she didn't do it others say of course she did But they all agree, Miss Lizzie B. was a problem kinda kid 'Cause you can't chop your papa up in Massachusettes Not even if it's planned as a surprise No, you can't chop your papa up in Massachusettes You know how neighbors love to criticize Well, she got him on the sofa where he'd gone to take a snooze, And I hope he went to heaven, 'cause he wasn't wearing shoes Lizzie kinda rearranged him with a hatchet so they say Then she got her mother in that same old fashioned way But you can't chop your mama up in Massachusettes Not even if you're tired of her cuisine No can't chop your mama up in Massachusettes You know it's almost sure to cause a scene Oh they really kept her hoppin on that busy afternoon With both down and upstairs hoppin while she hummed a ragtime tune They really made her hustle and when all was said and done She removed her mother's bustle when she wasn't wearing one Now can't chop your mama up in Massachusettes And then blame all the damage on the mice No you can't chop your mama up in Massachusettes That sort of thing just isn't very nice. Now it wasn't done for pleasure and it wasn't done for spite And it wasn't done because the lady wasn't very bright She'd always done the slightest thing that mom and papa bid They said, "Lizzie, cut it out!" so that's exactly what she did! But you can't chop your papa up in Massachusettes And then get dressed and go out for a walk No you can't chop your papa up in Massachusettes Massachausettes is a far cry from New York Shut the door and lock and latch it - here comes Lizzie with a brand new hatchet! Such a snob I heard it said, she met her pa and cut him dead! Jump like a fish - jump like a porpoise, all join hands and habeas corpus!
