Geraldine & John Lyrics

by Joe Jackson

See the bright red sports car, see the happy couple
See their clothes so white and their skin so pink
See them playin' squash gotta keep their bodies supple
Now they kiss goodnight but tomorrow they'll be thinkin'
All day long, all day long

Geraldine and John
See the happy couple, so inseparable
And the beat goes on
And for better or for worse
They are married but of course
Not to each other

Geraldine and John gotta keep it under cover
See they scheme and sweat but it's all worthwhile
Now he goes back home to a wife who's not a lover
Now her eyes are wet but tomorrow she'll be smilin'
All day long, all day long

Geraldine and John
See the happy couple, so insuperable
And the beat goes on
And for better or for worse
They are married but of course
Not to each other

And the feelin's gettin' stronger
That they can't go on much longer
Somewhere down the track
Somethin' has to crack

Geraldine just packed all her things and went to mother
But Johnny seems okay, happy wife happy home
See the scar on his face from the day he met her brother
But nothin' hurts no more, nothin' more than being lonely
All day long, all day long

Geraldine and John
See the happy couple, so insuperable
And the beat goes on
And for better or for worse
They are married but of course
Not to each other
