  • Do do do
    La la la

    My friend Sally says she knows ya
    Got a funny point of view
    Says you got away with murder
    Maybe one time, maybe two

    Something happens in the morning
    When I can't see those failing eyes
    I can't find a good word for ya
    Does it come as a surprise?

    I don't think we'd rhyme
    I will wear you down in time
    I will hurt you, I'll desert you
    I am Jackie down the line

    Said did Sally 'bout a future
    Before you bored of her as well
    If all you want is entertainment
    If you can't have it you make hell

    Don't make no odds for you
    To be told, yeah
    Don't make no odds for you
    To be told, yeah

    I don't think we'd rhyme
    I will wear you down in time
    I will hurt you, I'll desert you
    I am Jackie down the line
    I don't think we'd rhyme
    I will make your secrets mine
    I will hate you, I'll debase you
    I am Jackie down the line

    Do do do
    La la la

    So come on down to Sally's boneyard
    See her spirit in decline
    See the handsome mourners crying
    They hawked a beating heart for a sturdy spine, yeah

    What good is happiness to me
    If I've to wield it carefully?
    For care I'll always come up short
    It's only right

    I don't think we'd rhyme
    I will wear you down in time
    I will hurt you, I'll desert you
    I'm one Jackeen of a line
    I don't think we'd rhyme
    I will take up all your time
    I will chew you, I'll go through you
    I am Jackie down the line

    I don't think we'd rhyme
    I will make your secrets mine
    I will hate you, I'll debase you
    I am Jackie down the line
    And I will stone you, I'll alone you
    I am Jackie down the line
    If I can make you, I can break you
    I am Jackie down the line
    I am Jackie down the line

    Do do do
