Nine Days – The Joneses lyrics

Keeping up with the joneses
Keeps you keeping out
As long as you have the will to get along
And what you do for you is never wrong
So don't you worry
Don't you worry

And I was never keen enough
As long as this time is still ticking on the clock
But when your pretty face won't be enough
Then I won't you want you won't to want to

You're wearing your corduroys and your diamond tooth
But you couldn't relate to the girl with the silver spoon
The lies that you're telling me are always true
It's true
You made a fool of me for believing you

So keeping up with the joneses
Keeps me hanging on
As long as I have the will to get along
And what I do for you is always wrong
But don't you worry
Don't you worry
'cause I would never give it up
As long as this time's still ticking on the clock
But when your pretty face won't be enough
Now won't you want to won't you want to

I love you the most when you are fast asleep
And whatever I do for you I'm still the creep
I realize that I'm not good enough
It's tough for sensitive men in a world that don't give a fuck

So keeping up with the joneses
Keeps me hanging on
As long as I have the will to get along
And what you do for you is never wrong
But don't you worry
Don't you worry
'cause you would never give it up
As long as the time's still ticking on the clock
But when your pretty face won't be enough
Then I won't you want to won't you want to

Now even your corduroys are faded through
And when you're walking away
Well I think it's a better view
The lies that you tell yourself
Are always true
So true
And you keep on talking till your face is blue

Keeping up with the joneses
Keeps you hanging on
As long as you have the will to get along
And what you do for you is never wrong
So don't you worry
Don't you worry
And I would never give it up
As long as this time's still ticking on the clock
But when your pretty face won't be enough
Now won't you want you won't you want you don't you want you don't you want to
