From the album Hey Moon

Lyrics

Uncle Jack went drinking
Didn’t get home till four
Cracked his head on the doorpost
Passed out on the floor
Woke up with Molly weeping
And kissing him on the jaw
She said oh Jack don’t leave me
And kissed him on the jaw

He said I ain’t dead yet
I ain’t dead yet
I ain’t dead yet
I ain’t dead yet
Have I still got life in me?
You bet
Watch out people cos I ain’t dead yet.

Jimmy was a soldier
Took a bullet in the jeans
Sent home in a wheelchair
Back to New Orleans
Where a stranger at his table
Sat eating pork and beans
He said ‘the hells that feller there
Sat eating pork and beans

Chorus

Grand paw he was ninety
And he was awful thin
We took him to the hospital
And big nurse tucked him in
He said, hop in, and join me girl
You know it ain’t a sin
A girl like you’s just what I need
You know it ain’t a sin

Chorus

If you’re too old rockin
Too old for the boogaloo
You sit and moan at the TV
If that’s what you want to do
But it’ll kill you quicker than strychnine
So do just like I do
It’s like a bullet in the brain
So do just like I do

Chorus
