Poor Jack Lyrics

by Plain White T's

What have I done? What have I done?
How could I be so blind?
All is lost, where was I?
Spoiled all, spoiled all, everything's gone all wrong

What have I done? What have I done?
Find a deep cave to hide in
In a million years they'll find me
Only dust and a plaque that reads here lies poor old Jack

But I never intended all this madness, never
And nobody really understood, well how could they?
That all I ever wanted was to bring them something great
Why does nothing ever turn out like it should?

Well, what the heck I went and did my best
And by God I really tasted something swell, that's right
And for a moment, why I even touched the sky
And at least I left some stories they can tell, I did

And for the first time since I don't remember when
I felt just like my old bony self again
And I Jack, the Pumpkin King
That's right I am the Pumpkin King

And I just can't wait until next Halloween
'Cause I've got some new ideas that will really make them scream
And by God, I'm really gonna give it all my might
Oh, oh, I hope there's still time to set things right Sandy Claws
