Nick Cave - Janglin' Jack

rate me

Jangling Jack

Goes Yackety Yack

Visits the home of the brave

Hails a fat yellow cab

Jack wanna celebrate

Jack wanna penetrate

Driver drops him at a bar

Called the Rinky Dink

Jack pushes through the door

And crosses the floor

Tips his hat to a man

Grinning in the corner

Going Do da do

Says, I'm Jangling Jack

I go Do da do

I wanna Rinky Dink Special

I wanna little umbrella too

Jack flops on his stool

Sees the grinning man laugh

So Jack laughs back

Jack raises his glass

Says, God bless this country

And everything in it

The losers and the winners

The good guys and the sinners

The grinning man says, Buddy

It's all Yackety Yack

Whips out a little black pistol

Shoots a bullet in Jack

Oh yeah

Jangling Jack Do Da Do Do Da Do

How do you Do Da Do

Jangling Jack Flies off his seat

Crashes through the door

Lands in a heap on the street

Hears his mother's voice

Going, Do do do

Jack is shouting

Mummy is that you?

He sees the berserk city

Sees the dead stacked in piles

Sees the screaming crowd

Screams, Where am I?

Going Do da do

Going Do da do

Well Jangling Jack

As a matter of fact

Crawls through the crowd

Back into the bar

Jack crawls to his stool

Jack drags himself up

Falls back down on his arse

In a puddle of blood

Going Goodbye Mummy

Goodbye Goodbye

Jack doubles over

And he vomits and dies

Going Do do do

Going Do do do
