Get up Jack Lyrics

by Joan Osborne

Get up Jack, crack your head
Sweatin' whiskey in my bed
Ain't you heard a word I've said
Get up Jack

Get up Jack, read the news
See if you can tie your shoes
Find another friend to use
Get up Jack, get up Jack

And come down, come down
Long enough to see my face
Come down, come down
Get up Jack, Jack

Get up Jack, run and hide
Tell us all how hard you tried
Burn your bridges, drown your pride
And get up Jack

And get up Jack and crack your head
It's been so long since I fed
You ain't heard a word I've said
Get up Jack, get up, get up now

And come down, come down
Long enough to see my face
Come down, down, down
Get up Jack, Jack

If I came in a bottle
It was a mighty good year
How come I don't get you high
How come you're still here

God, you were so beautiful
I used to only watch you sleep
God, God so beautiful
Too much promise to keep, now now

Get up Jack and go to hell
Baby I can taste the smell
Wish I didn't, truth to tell
Know you, know you so damn well
Get up Jack

Get up Jack, get up now now now now
Come down, down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down, down, down

Come down, down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down, down, down
Down, down
