Billy Joel Captain Jack (Live 1977) Lyrics

Last updated: 07/17/2008 11:00:00 AM

Saturday night and you're still hangin' around
You’re tired of living in your one horse town
You'd like to find a little hole in the ground for awhile, ooh ooh
So you go to the village in your tie dyed jeans
And you stare at the junkies and the closet queens
It's like some pornographic magazine and you smile, oh oh oh

‘Cause Captain Jack will get you high tonight
And take you to your special island
Captain Jack will get you by tonight
Just a little push, and you'll be smilin', oh ho whoa, oh yeah

Your sister's gone out, she's on a date
And you just sit at home and masturbate
Your phone is gonna ring soon, but U just can't wait for that call
Ooh ooh, so you stand on the corner in your New English clothes
And you look so polished from your hair down to your toes
Ah but still your fingers gonna pick your nose, after all, oh oh oh

Captain Jack will get you high tonight
And take you to your special island
Oh, Captain Jack, you can rely tonight
Just a little push, and you'll be smilin', oh ho ho, oh yeah

So you decide to take a, a holiday
You got your tape deck and your brand new Chevrolet
But ain't no place to go anyway, what for? Ooh ooh
You got everything, ah, but nothing's cool
They just found your father in the swimming pool
And you guess you won't be going back to school
Anymore, ooh ooh

Captain Jack can get you high tonight
And take you to your special island
Ah Captain Jack can make you fly tonight
Just a little push, and you'll be smilin'
Oh whoa whoa whoa, oh yeah yeah

So you play your albums, and you smoke your pot
And you meet your girlfriend in the parking lot
Ah but still you're aching for the things you haven't got
What went wrong? Ooh ooh
And if you can't understand why your world is so dead,
Why you've got to keep in a style and feed your head
Well you're 21 and still your mother makes your bed,
And that's too long, oh oh, oh whoa yeah!

Captain Jack will get you high tonight
And take you to your special island
Oh Captain Jack will get you by tonight
Just a little push, and you'll be smilin'
Captain Jack will get you high tonight
And take you to your special island
Ah Captain Jack will get you by tonight
Just a little push, and you'll be smilin'
Oh whoa, oh whoa ho

(Thank you. Thank you, ribbons.)
