Happy Jack Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Happy Jack wasn't old but he was a man
He lived in the sand at the Isle Of Man

The kids all would sing, he would take the wrong key
So they rode on his head on their furry donkey

But they never stopped Jack in the water lapping
And they couldn't distract him from the seagulls flapping

The kids couldn't hurt Jack, they tried and tried and tried
They dropped things on his back
They lied and lied and lied and lied and lied

But they never stopped Jack nor the waters lapping
And they couldn't prevent Jack from feeling happy

They never stopped Jack nor the waters lapping
And they couldn't prevent Jack from feeling happy
