  • This song is also known by the title It's Sister Jenny's Turn To Throw The Bomb, but the 45 released by the Glencoves is titled It's Sister Ginny's Turn To Throw The Bomb. (Backwoods)
  • Song Lyrics:
    In an old chemist's attic, so dreary and so mean,
    Oh smell the fearful odors of nitroglycerine
    They're busy building bombs, and filling cans with nails
    And little starving kiddies set up this tearful wail:

    Oh, it's sister Ginny's turn to throw the bomb
    The last one it was thrown by brother John (brother John)
    Mother's aim is bad and the coppers all know Dad
    So it's sister Ginny's turn to throw the bomb

    In a dark and dreary attic, all filled with nitro fumes
    They spend each waking hour planning others' dooms
    They build bombs every morning, so not a day goes by
    That from some smoking building goes up this mournful cry:

    Oh, it's Sister Ginny's turn to throw the bomb
    The last one it was thrown by brother John (brother John)
    Mother's aim is bad and the coppers all know Dad
    So it's sister Ginny's turn to throw the bomb

    They're taught bomb-building from the day they're born
    And peace is something they all learn to scorn
    They can hardly wait to see the blast and hear the noise
    And watch the heads go flying off little girls and boys

    Oh, it's sister Ginny's turn to throw the bomb
    The last one it was thrown by brother John (brother John)
    Mother's aim is bad and the coppers all know Dad
    So it's sister Ginny's turn to throw the bomb

    She was maiming little children one fine day
    When her older brother swore she'd have to pay
    Grit his teeth and pulled the pin
    The whole darn house caved in
    And I'll bet she's building bombs below this day

    Oh, it's sister Ginny's turn to throw the bomb
    The last one it was thrown by brother John (brother John)
    Mother's aim is bad and the coppers all know Dad
    So it's sister Ginny's turn to throw the bomb
    It's sister Ginny's turn to throw the bomb
    (Backwoods)
