Well, here's a story 'bout Jelly Man Kelly
He loves jelly the most
Ah, but most of all
Jelly Man 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
Jelly Man Kelly, can he come home?
Jenny, can he come?
Jenny, put the kettle on
Jelly Man 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, can he come home?
Jenny, can he come?
Oh, can he come home?
Jenny, can he come home?
Jenny, can he come?

La la la da do do do do papa
Yodelee-hoo
Do fo fow
Yaka yaka yaka yaka huh uh no

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?

Here's the story 'bout Jelly Man Kelly
He sure loves jelly
And maybe someday, you and me, friend, we can have tea with him

    My Interpretation"So, Jenny, put the kettle on
    Jelly Man Kelly, can he come home?"
    This may mean that Jelly Man Kelly was cheating on Jenny and she kicked him out of the house. Kids (or just people in general) are begging her to forgive him and let him back in.

    "Oh, can he come home?
    Jenny, can he come home?
    Jenny, can he come?"
    This is them continuing to beg Jenny to take him back in.

    "Here's the story 'bout Jelly Man Kelly
    He sure loves jelly
    And maybe someday, you and me, friend, we can have tea with him"
    I really can't tell what the end means.
