Jangling Jack
Goes Yackety Yack
Visits the home of the brave
Hails a fat yellow cab

Jack wanna celebrate
Jack wanna big drink
Driver drops him at a bar
Called the Rinky Dink

Jack pushes through the door
And he crosses the floor
Tips his hat to a man
Grinning in the corner

Going do da do, going do da do
Going do da do, going do da do

Says, I'm Jangling Jack
I go do da do
I wanna Rinky Dink Special
I wanna little umbrella too

And he flops on his stool
Sees the grinning man laugh
So Jack laughs back
Jack raises his glass

Says, God bless this country
And everything in it
The losers and the winners
And I said, good guys and the sinners

The grinning man says
Buddy it's all Yackety Yack
Whips out a little black pistol
Shoots a bullet in Jack

I hear now Jangling Jack do da do, do da do
Jangling Jack, do da do, do, do
Jangling Jack, do do do, do
Jangling Jack, do da do, do, do

Hey buddy

Jangling Jack flies off his seat
Crashes through the door
Lands in a heap on the street

Hears his mother's voice
Going, do da do
Jack is shouting, mummy, mummy
Mummy is that you?

He sees the berserk city
Sees the dead stacked in piles
Sees the screaming crowd
Screams, where am I?

Going do da do, going do da do
Going do da do, going do da do
Oh yeah

Jangling Jack, do da do, da da do
Jangling Jack, do da do, do, do
Jangling Jack, do da do, do, do
Jangling Jack, do da do, do, do

Oh, mummy, mummy

Well, Jangling Jack
As a matter of fact
Crawls through the crowd
Back into the bar

Jack crawls to his stool
Jack drags himself up
Falls back down on his ass
In a puddle of blood

Going goodbye mummy
Goodbye ma
Then Jack doubles over
And he vomits and dies

Going do da do, going do da do
Going do da do, going do da do
Oh yeah

Jangling Jack, do da do, da da do
Jangling Jack, do da do, do, do
Jangling Jack, do da do, do da do
Jangling Jack, do da do, do, do
