Jack still cries day and night.
Jacks not happy with his life.
He wanna do this. He wanna do that.
He wanna be kind but its a fact for love.
For love

He tries so hard to get a lot.
He wants to be what he is not.
He doesnt act harsh. He doesnt act bad.
But what shes doin for love is so sad.
(He wants to be so bad. He wants to be so bad.)
All the time getting in, things he cant get out.
Something deep inside of him,
Eatin up the pride of him,
That makes him have things for other girls.
(Thats what you get for being polite.)
(For being polite.)

Jack still sits all alone.
He is the world that is his own.
Hes lost in thought. Could it be.
I wish for once that he could see. Just look.
Give him love.

He tries so hard to get a lot.
He wants to be what he is not.
He doesnt act harsh. He doesnt act bad.
But what shes doin for love is so sad.
(He wants to be so bad. He wants to be so bad.)
All the time getting in, things he cant get out.
Something deep inside of him,
Eatin up the pride of him,
That makes him have things for other girls.
(Thats what you get for being polite.)
(For being polite.)

(Instrumental)

(Jacks Still) Tryin to make you happy but,
(Jacks Still) Tryin to make you happy but,
(Jacks Still) Tryin to make you happy but he doesnt,
But he doesnt.

(Jacks Still) Tryin to make, But dont you know he cries?
(Jacks Still) But dont you know hesscared?
(Jacks Still) Ooo Its often for his love.
Its for his love.
Dont you know he often cries about you.
He cries about me.
He cries about you, (you) and me (me),
And every little thing thats in his way.
He cries about me.
He cries about you, (you) and me (me).
Know that hes just sadly cryin.

(Jacks Still) Dont you know he cries?
(Jacks Still) But dont you know hes scared?
(Jacks Still) Ooo Its often for his love.
Yeah! Yeah! Dontcha know!
(Jacks Still) Dontcha know! Dontcha know!
Dontcha know! Dontcha know!
(Jacks Still) Dontcha know! Dontcha know!
Dont you know!
He cries!
He cries because there is a lack of love.
Dont you know! _____ Dont you know!
Repeat to fadeout:
(Jacks Still) Dontcha know!
