Jenny Lewis – Jack Killed Mom lyrics

Jenny Lewis:
When Jack was born he winked at Mom
Her pretty face was the first he saw
Was Jack wrong because he loved Mom?

Things were bad, before they got worse
Mom would pinch Jack until it hurt
Mama thought her boy was cursed

You leave (leave! )
You leave (leave! )
You leave that boy to me
Oh, Jack, I love him
But you leave that boy to me
You leave (leave! )
Leave (leave! )
I know his condition and soon he will be free

Off at school Jack was cruel
He'd become the bully's bull
Was Jack wrong to mimic Mom?

And after school on the corner stool
Mom was kissing on the Golden Rule
Jack had become the teacher's fool

You leave (leave! )
You leave (leave! )
You leave that man to me
Oh, Mom, I love you, and soon you will be free
With my will (will! ) and my hands (hands! ) like old Solomon
And in your honor I'm going to cut that man in half

Johnathan Rice:
All the lessons Mama would teach
Books from Rome and ancient Greece
Men push rocks up stony mountains
Turning one fish into five thousand
And a king went blind from his mother's love
A terrible rage came over Jack
His Mama lying on her back
The one who taught him right from wrong
But knew no better all along
She got ran through when Jack killed his Mom
(Bang bang! )

Don't leave (leave! )
Don't leave (leave! )
Don't leave this world to me
Oh, Mom I love, I didn't mean to set you free
With my will (will! ) and my hands (hands! ) like old Solomon
Oh Mom, I love you, I didn't mean to set you free

Was Jack wrong? (Jack killed Mom! )
Was Jack wrong? (Jack killed Mom! )
Was Jack wrong? (Jack killed Mom! )
Jack killed Mom!
Jack killed Mom!
Was Jack wrong? Jack killed Mom!
Jack killed Mom!

Oh
When Jack killed his Mom!
