(The Ramones)

[Originally by The Ramones]

Jackie is a punk, Judy is a runt
They went down to the Mudd Club and they both got drunk

Well Jackie is a bookie, Judy's taking loans
They both come up to New York just to see the Ramones

And oh, I don't know why she wrote that letter
I don't know why we can't forget her, oh no

Well Jackie's playing hooky, Judy's playing pool
They both got caught for cutting
Now they go to summer school

Now Jackie's playing hooky, Judy's getting harassed
They both got kicked outside
They ain’t got no backstage pass

And oh, I don't know why she wrote that letter
I don't know why we can’t forget her

Well Jackie is a punk and Judy is a runt
They went down to the Mudd Club and they both got drunk

Now Jackie's playing hooky, Judy's playing pool
They both got caught for cutting
Now they go to summer school
