Lyrics below provided by Thatkliqkid (Thank you!)

Ooh who’s that sneaking down the hall?

What’s that shadow on the wall?

Half a ton of trouble to mess around with.

Armed with rubber bands His school book in hands (?)

Got a great big mouth to shoot you down with

Bam! Bam! Jumbo Sam (Gonna get, gonna get you Sam)

What a ham, Jumbo Sam (Gonna get, gonna get you Sam)

Bam! Bam! Bam! Fast talking guy Teenage private eye

Jumbo Sam

 

For one red dime He said he’d solve my crime

Find out who my girl’s been messin’ ’round with

But that great big son of a gun took my girl and run

Gonna get a baseball bat to knock him down with

Bam! Bam! Jumbo Sam (Gonna get, gonna get you Sam)

What a ham, Jumbo Sam (Gonna get, gonna get you Sam)

Bam! Bam! Bam! Fast talking guy, teenage private eye

Jumbo Sam

 

Teacher calling in the hall pitchin’ pennies on the wall (?)

He said he want enough to buy her present

Jumbo Sam is slick he’s up to his old tricks

If a rumour’s going ’round you know he said it

 

Bam! Bam! Jumbo Sam (Gonna get, gonna get you Sam)

Jumbo Sam (Gonna get, gonna get you Sam)

Fast talking guy, teenage private eye

Jumbo Sam ha!

Ohh! Jumbo Sam (Gonna get, gonna get you Sam) what a ham y’all

Jumbo Sam, Bam! Bam! Bam!

Fast talking guy, teenage private eye

Jumbo Sam No na now baby yeah

Jumbo Sam (Gonna get, gonna get you Sam)

Jumbo Sam (gonna get, gonna get  you Sam)

Fast talking guy teenage private eye
