I am looking for the words for a very old song. When I heard it, it was on
a 78 record. I believe it must be from the thirties. The only words that I
can remember are: "Fargo Fanny was a bold, bad gal but she done things
within the law." I would appreciate it greatly if anyone knows the lyrics
or where I could locate them.
Thank you,
Fargo
Hey-
I was just thinking of that song the other day-- it's out at my Mom's place.
Can't remember all of it. Hmmmmm
Fargo Fanny was a bold bad gal, but she done things within the law.
She openly admitted all the crimes that she committed - cuz she done things
Within the Law.
(Can't remember... they found her boyfriend with a bullet in his brain)-
But she convinced the judge she only meant to kill the pain,
Because she done things within the law.

And so on.
Cheers!

I remember this song from the 50's. We named
Our dog Fanny because of the song, but I don't remember much more than you do of the lyrics.

"Her man once had a headache that was drivin' him insane
Next day the sheriff found him with a bullet through his brain.
But she convinced the judge she only meant to kill the pain
Because she done things, within the law."

Fargo Fanny was a bold bad girl
But she done things within the law.
She openly admitted every crime that she committed
Cause she done things within the law.

One day her boyfriends headache
Was driving him insane
The next day they found him
With a bullet through his brain
But she convinced the judge
She only meant to kill the pain
But she done things within the law.

Not sure of the parts within quotes:

"A wealthy rancher" disappeared but when the law explored
They found him in the cellar where Fanny had him stored but
Fanny made it legal when she charged him room and board
ho ho she done things within the law.

"Fanny caught a married man" out with someone else's dame
He paid Fanny money not to expose his name
He stayed out of the picture but she kept him in the frame
because she done things within the law.
