The Lyrics

JCPenney used to sell guns like Sears and Montgomery Ward. They sold lots of Marlins and the Model 80 was really popular. A squirrel gun. Probably the best around.
Know her end to end
Yeah, that Marlin shoots really fine
7 shot, wooden frame
Been around a long time
Penny's used to sell that gun, but now it's hard to find

Granny had one way back in her time
Used to go squirrel hunting, don't you know it?
Plinking cans as well as rats with those crude, crude sights

You know I wish that I had a Penny's Squirrel
I wish that I had a Penny's Squirrel
Where can I find a Marlin like that?

Foremost on parade
Sold in Dept Store under that name
Quite popular for an old .22
Lots of people owned 'em because they were so easy to shoot

Caught varmints by surprise
And target practice was handy, you know it
Taught a lot of young, young guys


A Penny's Squirrel
I wish that I had a Penny's Squirrel
Best .22 in the whole wide world

Don't want a Savage or High Line
Or any modern plastic wannabes
Want reliability, and that Marlin was so fine
Granny's was sold at auction, she didn't leave it to me!

Tell me, why can't I find a Marlin like that?


Like Penny's Squirrel
I wish that I had a Penny's Squirrel
I want, I want a Penny's Squirrel

you know I love the OS and all but something I've been wondering... J-e-s-s-i-e is the feminine spelling of the name "Jessie/Jesse" isn't it? so if Rick Springfield was interested in "Jessie's" Girl then odds are she was a lesbian and not into dudes right? anyway good parody 455

Probably interchangeable like Robin, Sean, Chris, etc...
