Jack's gotta wait

Jack's gotta wait

gotta go do the dishes
there's mushrooms in the sink
gotta go do the laundry too
it's unbearable the stink
gotta pay phone tv and internet bills
before they cut me off o'those things
but jeez my mind is flyin' again
gotta clip its' little wings

 

before it's too late can't fly at all
and I'll be stuck in a little box too small
recording 'Jack''s music will have to wait
got other things to do ...for at least four hours straight

'Jack The Donkey'

i am not stubborn
and surely not a fool
just want my things my way
because they're all so cool

if you close one eye you'll see
just by winkin' at me
a donkey an' a monkey
a friendship too maybe...

i'm surely not lazy
i'm always at work
i'm selfemployed you see
so my boss can't be a jerk

if you close one eye you'll see
just by winkin' at me
a donkey an' a monkey
a friendship too maybe...

 ééh-ààh-hiii'm a donkey
 you may call me jack
 and i am also called
 an ass behind my back

 coz when i look at you
 don't know what to do
 for i am a donkey
 and you look like are a monkey
 both living
 in a zoooo
 
i don 't need a mirror
to tell me who i am
i know i'm not a monkey
so i don't give a damn

i close my eyes and see
if you wink at me
a donkey an' a monkey
a friendship too maybe...

 ééh-ààh-hiii'm a donkey
 you may call me jack
 and i am also called
 an ass behind my back
 coz when i look at you
 don't know what to do
 for i am a donkey
 and you look like are a monkey
 both living
 in a zoooo
 
my wife her name is Jenny
and never i feel blue
'coz most of her girlfriends
are jolly jennies too

so close your eyes and see
don't try to wink at me
a donkey an' a monkey
a friendship too maybe...

 ééh-ààh-hiii'm a donkey
 you may call me jack
 and i am also called
 an ass behind my back

 coz when i look at you
 don't know what to do
 for i am a donkey
 and you look like are a monkey
 both living
 in a zoooo
 
i hope that once you'll know me
you'll treat me with respect
for never in my life
respect í would neglect

so close your eyes and see
if you open an eye at me
a donkey an' a monkey
a friendship too maybe...

 ééh-ààh-hiii'm a donkey
 you may call me jack
 and i am also called
 an ass behind my back

 coz when i look at you
 don't know what to do
 for i am a donkey
 and you look like are a monkey
 both living
 in this zoooo
 
if ever you pretend
that we are not the same
a monkey you'd still be
and ass would be your name

open up your eyes and see
in the mirror that is me
a donkey an' a monkey
a friendship too maybe...

 ééh-ààh-hiii'm a donkey
 you may call me jack
 and i am also called
 an ass behind my back
 coz when i look at you
 don't know what to do

 for i am a donkey
 and you look like are a monkey
 both living
 in our zoooo ...
 
 [all donkeys together]
 
 ééh-ààh-weee are a donkey
 and you may call him jack
 he is also called
 an ass behind his back

 and when we look at you
 we don't know what to do
 for we are a donkey
 and you look like are a monkey
 both living
 in a zoooo-hoooo-hoooo
