Oh they call me Hangin' Johnny
Away, boys, away
But I never hanged nobody
And it's hang, boys, hang

Well, first I hanged me mother
Away, boys, away
Me sister and me brother
And it's hang, boys, hang

Well, next I hanged me granny
Aawy, boys, away
Well, I'd hang the holy family
And its hang, boys, hang

Well I never hangs for money
Away, boys, away
It's just that hangin's so bloody funny
And it's hang, boys, hang

Oh they calls me Hangin' Johnny
Away, boys, away
But I never hanged nobody
And it's hang, boys, hang

    My InterpretationMy best guess is it's about painting and "hanging" the paintings. Any other guesses?

    Song MeaningI think it's about, er..you know?
    Like.."flagging the mule" or "choking the chicken".
    I dunno, maybe I'm wrong, probably.
