I just got a letter from a very dear pal
He wrote to say he s sorry for stealin my gal

Pin a medal on Joey
He stole your love from me
Pin a medal on Joey
He set my poor heart free
No more cryin about a love that was untrue
Oh-ho, oh, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho

Hip hooray for that Joey
For bein good to me
Hip hooray for that Joey
He took my misery
No more heartache will I be givin you
Oh-ho, oh, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho

CHORUS
Told him all about you
Told him how you lied
But Joey won t believe me
He thinks I m a jealous guy-eye

Pin a medal on Joey
For bein such a fool
Pin a medal on Joey
He won a heart that s cruel
He ll be sorry when you break his heart in two
Oh-ho, oh, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho

Told him all about you
Told him how you lied
But Joey won t believe me
He thinks I m a jealous guy-eye

Pin a medal on Joey
For bein such a fool
Pin a medal on Joey
He won a heart that s cruel
He ll be sorry when you break his heart in two
Oh-ho, oh, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho

Pin a medal on Joey, hey, hey, hey, hey,
Hip hooray for that Joey oh, oh, oh, oh
FADE
Pin a medal on Joey, hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah
