My name is Jack and I live in the back of the Greta Garbo home
With friends I will remember wherever I may roam

And my name is Jack and I live in the back
Of the Greta Garbo home for wayward boys and girls
We all love Jack ,we live in the back
Of the Greta Garbo home for wayward boys and girls

There goes Fred with his hands on his head cause he thinks he's heard the bomb
And here comes Superman who really puts it on
There's lots of fun and I love to run up and down the stairs
I make as much noise as I want and no one ever cares

And my name is Jack and I live in the back
Of the Greta Garbo home for wayward boys and girls
We all love Jack ,we live in the back
Of the Greta Garbo home for wayward boys and girls

There's Carl over there with his funny old hair and he's never sad at all
And when he I grow up I want to run as fast as my friend Paul
There's the prettiest girl in the whole wide world and her name is Melody Mend
And here comes ma with brother Tom who's probably my best friend
Well ,Tom is my best friend ,my best friend ,well ,Tom is my best friend

And my name is Jack and I live in the back
Of the Greta Garbo home for wayward boys and girls
We all love Jack ,we live in the back
Of the Greta Garbo home for wayward boys and girls

My name is Jack and I live in the back of the grand'a Garbo home
(we all love Jack) and I live in the back (we live in the back)
In the back of the Greta Garbo home for wayward boys and girls
And my name is Jack (we all love Jack) and I live in the back (we live in the back)
In the back of the Greta Garbo home for wayward boys and girls

My name is Jack and I live in the back
My name is Jack and I live in the back .......
