(vocal: Skinnay Ennis) - 1934 Ozzie Nelson & His Orch. - 1934 Bonnie Poe (feat. in the short film "Ramblin' Round Radio Row") - 1934 As recorded by FRAN FREY & HIS ORCH.: There was a most peculiar kid in our town Was always late for school He never learned to tell a verb from a noun And always broke the rules Though they looked upon him as a clown Yet he wasn't such a fool Oh, Puddin' head Jones was fat and funny Dumber than sticks and stones Now that is just why the kids all called him Woodenhead, Puddin' Head Jones He couldn't spell Constantinople Didn't know beans from bones All those pencils and books, they were never made for Woodenhead, Puddin' Head Jones Teacher told his mother she would take him right in hand And teach him a thing or two Like his older brother he began to understand He learned everything that she ever knew All of the kids to the teacher carried Candy and ice cream cones But who do you think the teacher married Woodenhead, Puddin' Head Jones (Orchestral Interlude) After he got married, he went out and got a job And kept at it night and day Money stuck to him as close as corn upon the cob He never spent it in a cabaret Stock market crashed, then came depression Bankers cut down their loans But who do you think had all the money Woodenhead, Puddin' Head Woodenhead, Puddin' Head Jones ********************* ADDITIONAL VERSE: His spelling was bad as spelling could be He spelled cat with a K He saw that he and the teacher could not agree So he threw his books away
