The Undertones – Jimmy, Jimmy lyrics
Little mummy's boy
He wasn't very old
Though he was very small
He did what he was told

Jimmy Jimmy
Jimmy Jimmy - Oooh
Jimmy Jimmy
Poor little Jimmy wouldn't let go

He'd stay awake at night
Lying in his bed
No one ever listened
To a single word he said

Jimmy Jimmy...

Silly boy
Silly boy
Silly boy
Such a silly boy

Jimmy Jimmy...

Now little Jimmy's gone
He disappeared one day
But no one saw the ambulance
That took little Jim away

Jimmy Jimmy

    I think this song is about child abuse. The references to him "doing what he was told" and being awake at night suggest he was scared. No-one listening to a word he said and his being a "silly boy" sounds to me like the boy in this song tried to ask for help and wasn't taken seriously.
    Even as a youngster, I found the final verse really chilling; obviously something very sinister happened to Jimmy and was hushed up. I think Jimmy died at the hands of his carers and the matter was swept under the carpet.
