Now there was just my daughter and me when the hoodlums come in
They took the jukebox and money out of the till
And when they went out through the door, my daughter said, "Pa, I hung onto a fifty-dollar bill."
I asked, "Now, how the heck did you do that?"
"Well, I was sitting on it." said my daughter Nell
I said, "If only your dear sweet mother had been here,
"We could have saved the jukebox as well."
But at Benny's Place, last night at ten, Big Chief Sitting Bull blew in.
He had a plate of beans and then he blew out again.

Now, I went to see Pete about getting some meat from the barbecue on Saturday Night.
When this English Rose with the turned up nose came in from the caravan site.
Now Pete said to me, "Sire, I prithee, what might be that fair maiden's want?"
She stuck her bucket on the counter and she said, "a pound of fillet",
And Pete said, "A pound, you don't."
But, Benny's Girls are real well bred,
We like 'em in blue, we like 'em in red.
We love them the best when we got 'em in green.

Now, six Hell's Angels come in here one night and started picking on some little guy.
Now they pulled his hair, and then they pushed him off his chair...
And when he left I thought he was going to cry.
Well, the Hell's Angels said, "He ain't much of a man to let a gang like us do just what it likes."
I said, "He ain't much of a driver, 'cause he's just backed his truck over six brand new motor bikes!"
But at Benny's Place, we never get tight.
You can drink thirty pints, and it's still all right.
But we did have one fellow burst last night.

Now I saw Charlie parked outside in his car
I said, "Now tell me, where's your beautiful wife?"
I said, "That woman of yours just radiates happiness, she radiates the charm of life.
Now she radiates wit and she radiates wisdom, she radiates joy when she's speakin'."
He said, "That's great, but at the moment, mate, my radiator is leakin'."
Well, at Benny's Place, you get pork and beans
The waitresses are all beauty queens.
They all walk around in them open-neck jeans.

Come on down to Benny's...
Come and spend your pennies..
