John Prine – Jackie O lyrics

So you went to a party at jacqueline onassis
If you're so amart why don't you wear glasses
So you can see what you're doin' to me
So you can see what you're doin' to me
So you can see what tomorrow might bring

Underneath your breath you know I heard you cussin'
You were talkin' to my second cousin
Were you talkin' about me
Were you talkin' about me
You better put on your glasses so you can see
So you can see what tomorrow might bring

Can your daddy get us backstage passes
You know that we love to dance
Can your daddy give us backstage passes
With all his political power
With all his political power
It seems to me like you could dance better than you do

So you went to a party at jacqueline onassis
If you're so smart why don't you ear glasses
So you can see what the future might bring
So you can see what tomorrow might be
