The ballad of jerry
Sad was the day
And sharp was the noise
When the hang out kid saw
That his punishment came
He spent too much time
In praying for joy
It's all about a boy
First came the flashes
Followed by crashes
When jealousy rose
In the form of a pistol
Just ashes of wishes
Remained in his dishes
It's all about a boy
Jerry can dance,finally
Left all his plans
So far behind
Jerry can dance
It's plain to see
For the last time tonight
Between the sky
And the planks of the scaffold
When the wind it kneels down
And says: God bless you boy
His prayer for bliss
It had been raffled
It's all about a boy
Jerry can dance, finally
Left all his plans so far behind
Jerry can dance it's plain to see
Fot the last time tonight
Jery can dance finally
Left all his plans so far behind
Jerry can dance,
It's hellish to see
For the last time tonight
What have you done sonny-boy
Now you're dancing there
On your own
You've got your rope
You're jerking alone
