Jack Rose

lyrics

Jack Rose wanted a dynasty
He wanted something to protect
When in the end he's a middleman
When in the end he's got nothing left

Get it off, get it off, get it off
Get it off, get it off your chest

The name on the paper's not the same as the test

Oh Jack Rose, I think there's something
Everyone else knows about you

Jack Rose wanted a legacy
He wanted something to protect
Nothing above him and nothing below
Yeah in the end he's got nothing left

He says his prayers and goes to bed
At night and says he'll be a king
But I know him and you know him

Jack your rattle's not so loud
That I could find you in a crowd
But I know him and you know him

He says Daddy where've you gone
And I don't know how to respond
'Cause I know him and you know him

He says Daddy where've you gone
And I don't know how to respond
'Cause I know him and you know him

Get it off, get it off, get it off
Get it off, get it off your chest

The name on the paper's not the same as the test

Oh Jack Rose, I think there's something
Everyone else knows about you
