Captain Jack

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 a while
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 you smile
But Captain Jack will get you high tonight
And take you to your special island
Captain Jack will get you by tonight
Just a little push ‘n’ you’ll be smilin’
Oh yeah, yeah
Your sister’s gone out, she’s on a date
And you just sit at home and masturbate
Your phone is gonna ring soon,
But you just can’t wait, for that call
So you stand on the corner in your new English clothes
And you look so polished from your hair down to your toes
But still your fingers gonna pick your nose, after all
But Captain Jack will get you high tonight
And take you to your special island
Captain Jack will get you by tonight
Just a little push ‘n’ you’ll be smilin’
Oh yeah, yeah
So you decide to take a holiday
You got your tape deck and your brand new Chevrolet
Ah, but there’s no place to go anyway and what for
You’ve got everything, but nothin’s cool
They just found your father in the swimming pool
And you guess you won’t be going back to school anymore
But Captain Jack will get you high tonight
And take you to your special island
Captain Jack will get you by tonight
Just a little push ‘n’ you’ll be smilin’
La da, da
Oh yeah, yeah
So you play your albums and you smoke your pot
And you meet your girlfriend in the parking lot
Oh, but still you’re aching for the things you haven’t got,
What went wrong
And if you can’t understand why your world is so dead
And why you’ve got to keep in style and feed your head
Well, you’re twenty one and still you mother makes your bed
And that’s too long
But Captain Jack will get you high tonight
And take you to your special island
Captain Jack will get you by tonight
Just a little push ‘n’ you’ll be smilin’
Yeah, Captain Jack will get you by tonight
Yeah, Captain Jack will get you by tonight
