"The Lady from 29 Palms" as written by and Allie Wrubel....
She left twenty-nine broken hearts
Broken in twenty-nine parts
Now there are twenty-nine fellas complainin' to their moms
About the lady from 29 Palms

She got twenty-nine Cadillacs
Twenty-nine sables from Sach's
They came from twenty-nine fellas who never had their arms
Around the lady from 29 Palms

She's a yip-yip-yippy-eyed dolly
A new kinda gal of the west
And yip-yip-yippy by-golly
Whatever she does, she does her best

She rides twenty-nine trails to bliss
Knows twenty-nine ways how to kiss
She is a gal that you dream of, you'd love to have your arms
Around the lady from 29 Palms

She left twenty-nine broken hearts, baby
Broken in twenty-nine parts were their broken hearts, mmm oy-da doy-da
Twenty-nine fellas complainin' to their moms
About the lady from 29 Palms

She got twenty-nine Cadillacs, baby
Twenty-nine sables from Sach's and them Cadillacs, mmm boy-da doy-da
Twenty-nine fellas who never had their arms
Around the lady from 29 Palms

She's a yippety-yippety-yippety-eye-oh, what a dolly
A bronco that no one can break
And yippety-yippety-yippety-eye-oh, by-golly
She's never giving, but how she takes

She's got twenty-nine diamond rings
Got, got, got 'em without any strings (Wow!)
A dynamite dream-boat, a load of atom bombs (Who?)
The lady from 29 palms
The lady from 29 palms

    My Opinion"The lady from 29 Palms" is a totally non-sensible song.

    When this song first came out, 29 Palms was a military based in the Southern California desert used to train Navy glider units and to train tank units during world war II.

    The woman in the song supposedly had romantic relations with 29 "fellas" from this base. Most assuredly these were young enlisted men training for war. That these were 29 fellas complainin' to their moms, implies they were immature young men.

    The main points of the song:
    She got 29 Cadillacs - enlisted men training for war couldn't afford to buy an expensive car.
    She got 29 sables from Sach's - not economically feasible.
    She's got 29 diamond rings without any strings - again, not economically feasible.
    She got these gifts from 29 men who never had their arms around her (thus the line, "She's never giving, but how she takes"), so why would they buy her anything?
    She left twenty-nine broken hearts, well, they were young lonely men who were going off to war.

    Catchy tune, but totally unbelievable. Why was this non-sense so popular?
