Reply with quote

this is what I got...

When Jack was born, he winked at mom
Her pretty face was the first he saw
Was Jack wrong cause he loved mom?
Things went bad 'fore they got worse
Mom would pinch Jack until it hurt
She thought her boy was cursed

You leave, you leave, you leave that boy to me
Oh, Jack, I love him
You leave that boy to me
You leave (leave), leave (leave)
You leave that boy to me
I know his condition and soon he'll be set free

Out of school, Jack was cruel
He become the bully's _____
Was Jack wrong to mimic mom?
And after school, ____________
Mama's kissing the golden rule
This was no fun, he become his mother's fool

You leave, you leave, you leave that man to me
Oh, mama, I love you,
But you leave that man to me
With my will (will) and my hands (hands)
That old solid man, and in your honor
I'm gonna cut that man in half

Johnathan Rice:
All the lessons mama would teach
Books from Rome and ancient Greece
Men push rocks up stony mountains
turning one fish into five thousand
and a king went blind from his mother's love
A terrible rage rose inside Jack,
his mother lying on her back,
the one who taugh him right from wrong
and knew no better all along
She got ran through
and Jack killed mom, yup

Don't leave me, don't leave me, don't leave this world to me
Oh, Mama, I love you, didn't mean to set you free
With my will (will) and my hands (hands)
That old solid man, oh mama, I love you
I didn't mean to set you free

Was Jack wrong? (Jack killed mom)
Was Jack wrong? (Jack killed mom)
Was Jack wrong? (Jack killed mom)
Jack killed mom
Jack killed mom
Jack killed mom
etc.




I really like this song, and I hope it's included as a b-side on the You Are What You Love single, because a studio version of it would be...simply orgasmic.

if the entire album sounded as kick ass as this song, I don't think I'd be listening to anything else.

It's:
With my will (will) my hands (hands)
Like old Solomon


Like from the Bible, when he threatens to cut the baby in half to see which woman is truly the mother.

I was so jazzed when I heard her play that at the show. I would really like to see that recorded as well, the whole thing was so intense.

This song is fucking amazing. I don't think I've ever seen anyone rock an acoustic guitar as hard as Johnathan Rice during this song.

I really tend to like Jonathan's voice when he's singing a duet with someone.

these are my lyrics

Jack Killed Mom

When Jack was born, he winked at mom
Her pretty face was the first he saw
Was Jack wrong cause he loved mom?
Things went bad 'fore they got worse
Mom would pinch Jack until it hurt
Momma thought her boy was cursed

You leave, you leave, you leave that boy to me
Oh, Jack, I love him
You leave that boy to me
You leave (leave), leave (leave)
You leave that boy to me
I know his condition and soon he'll be set free

Out of school, Jack was cruel
He become the bully's boy???
Was Jack wrong to mimic mom?
And after school, connoisseur
Mama's kissing on the golden rule
Jack had become his teachers fool

You leave, you leave, you leave that man to me
Oh, mama, I love you,
And soon you will be free
With my will (will) and my hands (hands)
Like old Solomon, and in your honor
I'm gonna cut that man in half

Johnathan Rice:
All the lessons momma would teach
Books from Rome and ancient Greece
Men push rocks up stony mountains
Turning one fish into five thousand
And a king went blind from his mother's love
A terrible rage came over Jack
His momma lying on her back
The one who taugh him right from wrong
And knew no better all along
She got ran through
And Jack killed mom

Don't leave me, don't leave me, don't leave this world to me
Oh, Mom, I love you, didn't mean to set you free
With my will (will) and my hands (hands)
Like old Solomon
Oh mom, I love you
I didn't mean to set you free

Was Jack wrong? (Jack killed mom)
Was Jack wrong? (Jack killed mom)
Was Jack wrong? (Jack killed mom)
Jack killed mom
Jack killed mom
Jack killed mom
Jack killed mom
Jack killed mom
Jack killed mom

Woooooooooooooo
Woooooooooooooo
Woooooooooooooo
Woooooooooooooo
Woooooooooooooo

Jack killed mom
Jack killed mom
Jack killed mom
Jack killed mom

Oooooooooooooh

When Jack killed mom

When I saw Jenny play this live I was totally blown away. It's a great song to start with, but to see/hear her PERFORM it live...seriously, it was like a spiritual experience.

I think I've kinda got the chords and the piano part, but once it starts adding guitar solos and shit I'm lost. Embarassed

It's pretty awesome though. I've been working on the piano part for the last hour. I'm so proud of myself.

i think its 'bully's bull'
or something like that

i agree with many, this is the best, but it'll probably sound better live than anything else.

the lyric is:
And after school, from the corner stool
Mom was kissing, on the golden rule
Jack had become the teacher's fool.
