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 with their furry donkey

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

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

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

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

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

The kids couldn't hurt Jack
They tried and tried and tried
They dropped things on his back
And 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
