  • Song Lyrics:
    Now I'll tell you a story that'll give you a shock
    And it's all about a murder on a St. John's dock
    The person in question was Biddie McGraw
    And she strangled two men with the straps of her bra

    With a too-rye-ya, boddle-deedle-dah
    Too-rye-oo-rye-oo-rye-ya
    With a too-rye-ya, boddle-deedle-dah
    Too-rye-oo-rye-oo-rye-ya

    Now it was late one night about eleven o'clock (cuckoo-cuckoo)
    Late one night on a St. John's dock
    Well, she wrapped her bra 'round one sailor's head
    And she threw him in the river like a crust of bread

    With a too-rye-ya, boddle-deedle-dah
    Too-rye-oo-rye-oo-rye-ya
    With a too-rye-ya, boddle-deedle-dah
    Too-rye-oo-rye-oo-rye-ya

    Now the other sailor stood and he laughed ha ha (giggle)
    And she stuffed his mouth with the rest of her bra
    His face turned purple and before he fell
    So she picked up her miniskirt and run like hell

    With a too-rye-ya, boddle-deedle-dah
    Too-rye-oo-rye-oo-rye-ya
    With a too-rye-ya, boddle-deedle-dah
    Too-rye-oo-rye-oo-rye-ya

    Now when Biddie got home about a quarter to one (c**k-a- doodle-doo)
    Ach, she was happy and contented with a job well done
    So she told the story to her Ma and Pa
    Sayin', "Thanks be to God that I wore me bra"

    With a too-rye-ya, boddle-deedle-dah
    Too-rye-oo-rye-oo-rye-ya
    With a too-rye-ya, boddle-deedle-dah
    Too-rye-oo-rye-oo-rye-ya

    Now come all you young girls who go walkin' late at night
    Never keep the straps of your bra too tight
    Just remember the story of Biddie McGraw
    And you keep your hands on the straps of your bra

    With a too-rye-ya, boddle-deedle-dah
    Too-rye-oo-rye-oo-rye-ya
    With a too-rye-ya, boddle-deedle-dah
    Too-rye-oo-rye-oo-rye-ya

    With a too-rye-ya, boddle-deedle-dah
    Too-rye-oo-rye-oo-rye-ya
    With a too-rye-ya, boddle-deedle-dah
    Too-rye-oo-rye-oo-rye-ya
