The Naugty Lady of Shady Lane
The Ames Brothers Lyrics

The naughty lady of Shady Lane
Has hit the town like a bomb
The back-fence gossip ain't been this good
Since Mabel ran off with Tom
Our town was peaceful and quiet
Before she came on the scene
The lady has started a riot
Disturbin' the suburban routine

The naughty lady of Shady Lane has the town in a whirl
The naughty lady of Shady Lane
Me-oh, my-oh, what a girl
You should see how she carries on
With her admirers galore
She must be givin' them quite a thrill
The way they flock to her door
She throws those come-hither glances
At every Tom, Dick, and Joe
When offered some liquid refreshment
The lady never never says "no"

The things they're trying to pin on her
Won't hold much water, for sure
Beneath the powder and fancy lace
There beats a heart sweet and pure
She just needs someone to change her
And she'll be nice as can be
If you're in the neighborhood, stranger
You're welcome to drop in and see
The naughty lady of Shady Lane
So delightful to hold
The naughty lady of Shady Lane
So delectable
Quite respectable
And she's only nine days old

LOL. Until I was in my 50's I thought the Naughty Lane was about a woman of ill-repute. racked me up when I paid attention and realized that it was about an infant!

Shannon Gardiner

"And she's only 9 days old" didn't tip you off ;P I first heard the Dean Martin version of the song so was waiting for the twist but never predicted it would be about an infant. Love this song!

Andy Pandy

@dennis price - me too I was in my early 30s in the late 90s and my ex-girlfriend gave me a Dean Martin CD which included it before I paid attention and realised the "naughty lady" was a baby!

@Dr Dimento I Googled Mitch Miller discography, which shows all the albums, singles, EPs, and miscellaneous. I don't find anything about a Valerie song (maybe this was within a song with a different title?):

Dr Dimento

@Gia Brainerd oh for sure. and the way Mitch directed wit his hands down low and arms out was so distinctive. I can still hear the songs and sing them. i have this like unbelievable memory. i can even see the lyrics pages that came with the album and the lyrics themselves. love that era. what i wouldn't give to go back and snack on a slice of that pie again. i ate it too fast the first time. during the 60's i prided myself in knowing not only the name of the hit song on a record, but what was on the flip side and what label the record was under. kids used to come to me and ask such trivia. hehehehe. a walking encyclopedia. heck, i read the american encyclopedia by the time i graduated HS for fun. but more entertaining was "The Rise and Fall of the Third Riecht." Wow what a piece of work that book was. i finished it over the summer before the start of high school. amazing message in that book.

Gia Brainerd

@Dr Dimento I'm sorry; I can't say that I remember that one in particular. I remember watching Sing Along With Mitch, hearing him on the radio, and that we had at least one album of his. It's more of a visceral memory than remembering actual songs or lyrics. It was a very distinctive sound and one that I connect with a pleasant and comfortable childhood.

I can't believe there is one dislike for this song. It was great when new and it is still great.

Cristina Delgadillo

I absolutely agree!!


@ d'accord ~~


@Shannon Gardiner No, is because is old and new generations dont like oldies of this kind.
