There's a scandal in the neighborhood
And it's all about Julie brown
It seems a long lost cousin, Jeremiah
Had lately arrived in town

Now when Julie's fella came to call and saw them kissing
He started home at once
But Julie said, "I'm surprised at you
Don't go acting like a dunce"

Why? He's a cousin of mine, a cousin of mine
You're liable for to see him here any old time
He's a cousin of mine, a cousin of mine
Go on, he's a cousin of mine

Now when Julie had explained her relationship
He said, "Honey, that may be so"
But this fella don't look like a thirty-second cousin
That I met here a week ago

Julie smiled at him and joined her cousin, sad
And as they slowly walked away
He heard him ask, Who was that fella?
And he heard his Julie say

Why? He's a cousin of mine, a cousin of mine
You're liable for to see him here any old time
He's just a cousin of mine, a cousin of mine
Go on, he's a cousin of mine

Would I fool you?
Go on he's a cousin of mine
