The day that Jackie jumped the jail

The day that Jackie jumped the jail
There was a big explosion just as he got off the motorway
Thirty thousand fireworks
Took the piss out of Princes Street Gardens
So he drove up to the Budgie for a livener
See the smell of cabbages first thing in the morning

Sun will be up again
You, you will be loved again

After the sausages and cream of the barley
There was a frame or two
To be had at the 'Imperial' on Mitchell Street
Five years ago he'd buried her memory
With a snooker cue on a daft wee student's head
Still he remembered everything

The sun will be up again
And you, you will be loved again
And the wind and the rain
And the wind and the rain, falls around

I don't know, I don't know

As he walked down Hope Street
He thought about the last time they'd been together
He'd been wearing a green parka
And he'd bought her yellow stilettos that squeezed her toes

He'd told her the whole story
As she took him into the wee pen behind Sloan's
And let him feel her all over for the last time
Ten minutes later the meat wagon picked him up

The sun will be up again
And you, you will be loved again
You will be loved again

And the wind and the rain
And the wind and the rain, falls around
All over this town

Falls around
All over this town
All over this town

Falls around
All over, all over, all over
