  • Jilly's on smack, and she won't be comin' back
    No she won't be comin' back, for the holidays
    Jilly's on smack, and she won't be comin' back
    No she won't be comin' back, for the holidays

    Jilly left home
    Went to pick her own bone
    She made her own
    In the marketplace

    Now Jilly's on smack, and she won't be comin' back
    No she won't be comin' back
    For these holidays

    Now Jilly's on smack, and she won't be comin' back
    No she won't be comin' back
    For the holidays

    Jilly had a smile
    That spanned over a mile
    She left him standing in the aisles
    Of the big parade

    Jilly always phoned her mother
    Emailed daily to her brother
    'Til she took a junkie lover
    And began to fade

    Now Jilly's on smack, and she won't be comin' back
    No she won't be comin' back
    For the holidays

    Jilly's on smack and she won't be comin' back
    No she won't be comin' back
    For the holidays

    Jilly's on smack and she won't be comin' back
    No she won't be comin' back
    For them holidays Writer/s: LES CLAYPOOL, REID L. III LALONDE
