  • You were so tired that you took a nap
    Tied you up while you were on your back
    and they told you that your name was Jack

    Well, they thought you might have been the
    missing link
    Make some big cash with those two big feet
    A carnival crew's on the city street
    Pay admission just to see the freak-

    named Jacko...
    A sign of the times
    Please forgive we're just human kind
    People don't see
    You're a child and you don't want to be
    a Jacko.

    Big hotel on the news today
    by the old fishin' hole where you used to play
    It's prime real estate I would have to say
    But your home will never look the same

    Well, profit shares and the bottom line
    Make it to Wall Street with a glass of wine
    Your chemical dump I don't really mind
    Now I'm bald and I'm going blind

    Poor Jacko...
    Humanity it speaks of all that it wants to be
    and as you can see
    All we dish out is hypocrisy
    to Jacko.
    Jacko...
    A sign of the times
    Please forgive we're the human kind
    People can't see
    You're a child and you don't want to be
    a Jacko.........
    ...Just call him Jacko
    ...Call him Jacko.

    I am not your missing link
    and I am not your prize
    for a hunting expedition under starry skies
    Keep me in the wilderness
    where I can breath the air
    Maybe one day we will meet
    but hey - leave your gun there
    If you must come leave your gun there

    [Jack-hey-Jacko-a-hey-a-Jacko-call him-
    Jack-Jacko-call him-hey-call him-hey-
    Just call him Jacko].

    Back in the deep wood a line in the sand
    by an old oak tree - You will make your stand
    If they find you back there you have had it man
    They're gonna kill ya anyway they can

    Poor Jacko...
    A sign of the times
    Please forgive we're the human kind
    People can't see
    You're a child and you don't want to be
    To be?
    Jacko....
    Humanity it speaks of all that it wants to be
    And as you can see
    All we dish out is hypocrisy to Jacko.
