Captain Jack

In the style of

Billy Joel

Lyrics

saturday night
and you're still
hangin' around

you're tired of
livin' in your
one-horse town
you'd like to find
a little
hole in the ground
for awhile
hmm hmm mm

so you go to
the village in your
tie-dye jeans
and you stare
at the junkies
and the closet queens

it's like some
pornographic
magazine
and ya smile
hmm mm hmm

but captain jack will
get ya high tonight
and take ya to your
special island

captain jack will
get ya by tonight
just a little push
and you'll be smilin'
oh yea yeah

your sister's gone out
she's on a date
and you just
sit at home
and m#st#rb#te

your phone is gonna
ring soon
but you just can't wait
for that call
mm mm hmm

so you stand
on the corner in your
new english clothes
and you look
so polished
from your hair
down to your toes

aw but still
your finger's
gonna pick your nose
after all
hmm mm hmm yeah

but captain jack will
get ya high tonight
and take ya to your
special island

captain jack will
get ya by tonight
just a little push
and you'll be smilin'
doh doh doh ooh oh
oh yea yeah

so you decide
to take a
holiday
you got your
tape deck
and your brand-new
chevrolet

ah there ain't no place
to go anyway
and what for
mm mm hmm

so you've got
everything aw
but nothin's cool
they just found
your father
in the swimmin' pool

and you guess
you won't be going
back to school
anymore

but captain jack
can get ya high
tonight
and take ya to
your special island

aw captain jack
will get ya by tonight
just a little push
and you'll be smilin'
la da la
oh yea yeah

so you play
your albums
and ya smoke
your pot
and ya meet
your girlfriend
in the parkin' lot

aw but still
you're aching
for the things
ya haven't got
what went wrong
mm hmm

and if ya can't
understand
why your world
is so dead
and why you've gotta
keep in style
and feed your head

well you're
twenty-one and
still your mother
makes your bed
and that's too long
oh oh
oh woh
yeah yeah yeah

but captain jack will
get ya high tonight
and take ya to
your special island
well now captain jack
will get ya by tonight
just a little push
and you'll be smilin'

aw captain jack
will get ya
high tonight
take ya to your
special island

well now
captain jack could
make it right tonight
just a little push and
you'll be smilin'

yeah captain jack will
get ya high tonight
and take ya to
your special island
captain jack
will make it
right tonight

yeah
well now
captain jack will
make it right tonight
just a little push
and you'll be smilin'
