Judy in Disguise, well that's a-what you are
A-lemonade pies, with a brand new car
Cantaloupe eyes come to me tonight
Your Judy in disguise, with glasses

Keep a-wearing your bracelets, and your new rah rah
A-cross your heart, yeah, with your living bra
A-chimney sweep sparrow with guys
Your Judy in Disguise, with glasses

Come to me tonight, come to me tonight
I've taken everything in sight
Unzipper the strings of my kite

Judy in Disguise, hey that's what you are
A-lemonade pies, hey got your brand new car
Cantaloupe eyes come to me tonight
Your Judy in Disguise, with glasses

Come to me tonight, come to me tonight
I've taken everything in sight
Unzipper the strings of my kite

Judy in Disguise, well what you aiming for
A-circus of a-horrors, yeah yeah, well that's what you are
You make me a life of ashes
I guess I'll just take your glasses

    The key to this song is knowing that "kite", "pies", "chimney swift" and "sparrow" are all types of birds, and bird is slang for an attractive young woman...
    John Fred mistakenly calls the "chimney swift" a "chimney sweep" thereby changing his description of Judy as a swift-flying migratory bird into a nonsensical lyric...
    "I've taken everything in sight, unzipper the strings of my kite" means that he has seen Judy in her disguise (large sunglasses and latest fashions) and now he wants to remove her disguise...
    "Strings" means threads, which is slang for clothes.....

    "chimney sweep sparrow with guys" is a line about judy's demeanor... "sparrow" is a type of bird, and bird is slang for girl... "chimney sweep" is someone you hire to clean the soot from your chimney... Whoops! The songwriters meant "chimney swift", a type of bird, and bird is slang for girl... A "chimney swift" is a small, swift-flying, migratory bird, similar to a swallow... So this lyric should be "chimney swift swallow", but john fred wrote and sang "chimney sweep sparrow"... Anyway, it implies that judy is a flirtatious bird, who moves quickly from guy to guy... If this line were written today, it would have to be "taylor swift sparrow with guys"...

    This song is about judy's stylish appearance... Judy looks enticing in
    Her large sunglasses, brand new car, bracelets and fashionable new clothes... However, her alluring appearance disguises her true identity... In the final verse, it's revealed that (without her "disguise") judy is a hideous looking femme fatale...

    I grew up with this song! It made you feel good as a teenager. There was a lot of bad crap going on in the world. Vietnam, president kennedy being killed, the kids needed a break! The name of the band made me laugh and wonder where they were from at the same time!
