Jellyman Kelly

Album: In Harmony (1980)
  • Well here's the story 'bout Jellyman Kelly.
    He loves jelly the most
    Ah but most of all, Jellyman Kelly loves Jelly on, toast
    And here's the part about Jenny Mulhenny.
    She's the fireman's daughter
    Ah but most of all, Jenny Mulhenny loves to boil hot water

    So, Jenny put the kettle on.
    Jellyman Kelly, can he come home?
    Jenny can he come?
    Jenny put the kettle on.
    Jellyman Kelly, can he come home?
    Jenny can he come?

    Oh can he come home
    Jenny can he come home
    Jenny can he come
    Oh can he come home
    Jenny can he come Home
    Jenny can he come

    Oh can he come home
    Jenny put the kettle on.
    Jenny can he come home
    Jellyman Kelly, can he come home?
    Jenny can he come?
    Oh can he come home
    Jenny put the kettle on.
    Jellyman Kelly, can he come home?
    Jenny can he come home
    Jenny can he come?

    Lada lada lada doo doo, papa
    Yodelly doo
    Doo bom boum
    Yaka yaka yaka yaka da da doo

    Oh can he come home
    Jenny can he come home
    Jenny can he come, tonight?
    Oh can he come home
    Jenny can he come home
    Jenny can he come?

    Oh can he come home
    Jenny put the kettle on.
    Jenny can he come home
    Jellyman Kelly, can he come home?
    Jenny can he come?
    Oh can he come home
    Jenny put the kettle on.
    Jellyman Kelly, can he come home?
    Jenny can he come home

    And maybe someday, you and me, friend.

  • David from Plattsmouth, NePart of the irony with this song is the way it plays against one of his other songs, "Machine Gun Kelly".
  • Michael from El Paso, Tx, MoIf any one knows where I can get the sheet music (Tuba and Guitar) for this please, please, please let me know, My daughter and i would love to be able to perform this song! It is a great, great song!
