Jackpot

This song's called the jackpot,
Well look at that

Hip, hip horray, yeah, yeah

You got your jackpot,
You got your jackpot when you hit the top

Say what a joy,

Say I was walking down the road
With my heavy, heavy load
Try to keep it secret,
But now everybody knows
Darling won't you stay
Please don't stand in love's way
Darling won't you stay
I just can't stand another day
Cause you're a pretty young lady
Don't come a' tease
You're a pretty young lady
You're a pretty young lady, lord
Cause you're a pretty young lady, whoa

If you're getting hot,
You gotta enter the spot
'Cause this one's called jack pot!
Boy!

Say do you feel alright
Did the Beat come all over you tonight?
Say did we make it right,
Did the Beat come all over you tonight?

Say what a joy,
What a joy,
What a joy,
What a joy,
What a joyful sound.

Say what a joy,
What a joy,
What a joy,
What a joy,
What a joyful sound.

Say hip, hip horray, yeah, yeah
Hip, hip horray, yeah, yeah
Hip, hip horray, yeah
Hip, hip horray, yeah

[toasting]

I'm sorry to say
But I'm on my way
I won't be back for many a day
Say goodbye everybody
Goodbye everybody
Goodbye everybody
Say goodbye everybody
Say it's a love and unity song
Goodbye everybody
Say goodbye everybody
Goodbye everybody, yeah

I say I'm sorry to say
But I'm on my way
I won't be back for many a day
