help i dont think im crazy but you never know
in the late 60's there was a group called something like 'katz and jammer kidz' or near that. they had one song and i loved it but now with age i can't remember it or their exact name. if someone could please help with either their name and preferably the name of both i'd sure appreciate it.
thanks so much

Another possibility. If it's from the '60s, then maybe it's 'Quick Joey Small' by Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orchestral Chorus. Infectious bubblegum song from 1968. Lyrics follow...

Quick Joey Small went over the wall
With a ball an' a chain behind him
Quick Joey Small went over the wall
Send the dogs right out to find him

In a striped prison suit with no loot to boot
He headed for the highway
With his chain still draggin'
He thumbed down a wagon said
"Man are you goin' my way?"
And they say now

Chorus:
Run Joey , Joey run run the hounds are on your trail
Jump-up! Jump-up!
Run Joey , Joey run run they're gonna send you back to jail

Sheriff got a shotgun (he do)
He'll fill you full of lead son (it's true)
He's also got a blackjack (he's mad)
He'd bust your head with one whack
Here I go now

Run Joey, Joey run run the hounds are on your trail

Sweet Mary Jane was goin' insane
When she heard of Joey's jail break
But she knew all the while 'cause
She sent him a file
Baked inside a fudge cake (and they say now)

Chorus

Sheriff Jack Bains was a light on brains
But he knew one thing for sure
He took some tuffs and a pair of handcuffs
And headed straight for Mary Jane's door

And they say . . .

Chorus x 2

Pete, I think you have the right song, but the group's name is Kasenetz Katz Singing Orchestral CIRCUS, not Chorus. Jerry Kasenetz and Jeff Katz were producers of bubblegum music in the late '60s, producing records for the 1910 Fruitgum Company, The Ohio Express and the Shadows of Knight among others.

My apologies. I guess if you're old enough to remember the 60s, you sometimes can't distinguish between a chorus and a circus ;o)

...BTW the lead vocal on 'Quick Joey Small' sounds suspiciously like the guy in the Ohio Express. Is it the same dude?
