"Judy Is a Punk" as written by and Thomas/cummings Erdelyi....
Jackie is a punk
Judy is a runt
They both went down to Berlin, joined the Ice Capades
And oh, I don't know why
Oh, I don't know why
Perhaps they'll die, oh yeah
Perhaps they'll die, oh yeah
Perhaps they'll die, oh yeah
Perhaps they'll die, oh yeah
Second verse, same as the first
Jackie is a punk
Judy is a runt
They both went down to Berlin, joined the Ice Capades
And oh, I don't know why
Oh, I don't know why
Perhaps they'll die, oh yeah
Perhaps they'll die, oh yeah
Perhaps they'll die, oh yeah
Perhaps they'll die, oh yeah

Third verse, different from the first
Jackie is a punk
Judy is a runt
They both went down to San Frisco, joined the SLA
And oh, I don't know why
Oh, I don't know why
Perhaps they'll die, oh yeah
Perhaps they'll die, oh yeah
Perhaps they'll die, oh yeah
Perhaps they'll die, oh yeah

    General Comment"Judy is a Punk" was written by Joey about two streetwise girls. The SLA line refers to Patty Hearst. Although the first line is "Jackie is a punk," the title may have been changed to avoid offending supporters of Jackie Onassis. "Second verse, same as the first" is from "I'm Henry the VIII I Am" by Herman's Hermits, and "Perhaps they'll die" is a joke from the old children's song "There was an old lady who swallowed a fly" (perhaps she'll die).

    General CommentThe SLA is:

    The Symbionese Liberation Army was an American paramilitary group that considered itself to be a revolutionary vanguard army and was a proponent of radical ideology. Members of the group were accused and convicted of committing murders, bank robberies, and acts of violence between 1973 and 1975. Even though they never had more than 13 members, they became the top ongoing media story during their underground fugitive period[citation needed]. More than anything else, this was generated by their spectacular kidnapping of wealthy media heiress Patty Hearst, making them household names. Even more newsworthy were later developments in which Hearst seemed to become more and more sympathetic with the aims of the SLA and eventually joined the group, taking part in their illegal activities, including bank robberies.
