  • Song Lyrics:
    I plopped down in my easy chair and turned on Channel 2
    A bad gunslinger called Salty Sam was chasin' poor Sweet Sue
    He trapped her in the old sawmill and said with an evil laugh,
    "If you don't give me the deed to your ranch
    I'll saw you all in half!"
    And then he grabbed her (and then)
    He tied her up (and then)
    He turned on the bandsaw (and then, and then...!)

    And then along came Jones
    Tall thin Jones
    Slow-walkin' Jones
    Slow-talkin' Jones
    Along came long, lean, lanky Jones

    Commercial came on, so I got up to get myself a snack
    You should've seen what was goin' on by the time that I got back
    Down in the old abandoned mine, Sweet Sue was havin' fits
    That villain said, "Give me the deed to your ranch
    Or I'll blow you all to bits!"
    And then he grabbed her (and then)
    He tied her up (and then)
    He lit the fuse to the dynamite (and then, and then...!)


    I got so bugged I turned it off and turned on another show
    But there was the same old shoot-'em-up and the same old rodeo
    Salty Sam was tryin' to stuff Sweet Sue in a burlap sack
    He said, "If you don't give me the deed to your ranch
    I'm gonna throw you on the railroad tracks!"
    And then he grabbed her (and then)
    He tied her up (and then)
    He threw her on the railroad tracks (and then)
    A train started comin' (and then, and then...!)
