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

He tries so hard to get a lot.
He wants to be what he is not.
He doesn't act harsh. He doesn't act bad.
But what she's 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 can't get out.
Something deep inside of him,
Eatin' up the pride of him,
That makes him have things for other girls.
(That's what you get for being polite.)
(For being polite.)

Jack still sits all alone.
He is the world that is his own.
He's 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 doesn't act harsh. He doesn't act bad.
But what she's 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 can't get out.
Something deep inside of him,
Eatin' up the pride of him,
That makes him have things for other girls.
(That's what you get for being polite.)
(For being polite.)

(Jack's Still) Tryin' to make you happy but,
(Jack's Still) Tryin' to make you happy but,
(Jack's Still) Tryin' to make you happy but he doesn't,
But he doesn't.

(Jack's Still) Tryin' to make, But don't you know he cries'
(Jack's Still) But don't you know he'sscared'
(Jack's Still) Ooo It's often for his love.
It's for his love.
Don't you know he often cries about you.
He cries about me.
He cries about you, (you) and me (me),
And every little thing that's in his way.
He cries about me.
He cries about you, (you) and me (me).
Know that he's just sadly cryin'.

(Jack's Still) Don't you know he cries'
(Jack's Still) But don't you know he's scared'
(Jack's Still) Ooo It's often for his love.
Yeah! Yeah! Don'tcha know!
(Jack's Still) Don'tcha know! Don'tcha know!
Don'tcha know! Don'tcha know!
(Jack's Still) Don'tcha know! Don'tcha know!
Don't you know!
He cries!
He cries because there is a lack of love.
Don't you know! Don't you know!
Repeat to fadeout:
(Jack's Still) Don'tcha know!
