Don't Let The Joneses Get You Down (Single Version Mono) - The Temptations (誘惑演唱組)

People gather round me

This is to who it may concern

I'm not tryin' to run your life

But you're never too old to learn

Stop worryin' about your neighbors

And the fancy things they got

'Cause if you do you'll find it's true

You're gonna wind up on the spot

 

Don't let the Jones Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Joneses get you down

Don't let the Jones Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Joneses get you down

 

You may not believe it but nine times out of ten it's true

The people you're tryin' to keep up with are tryin' to keep up too

Remember that old sayin';

"All that glitters ain't gold"

Take heed don't ignore it

And to your money tightly hold

 

Don't let the Jones Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Joneses get you down

 

Don't let the Jones Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Joneses get you down

 

You're a leader yourself but you don't even know it

You're so busy followin' Joneses

You ain't got time to show it

Keeping up with the Joneses

It only makes your life a mess

Bill collectors tranquilizers and gettin' deeper in debt

You better leave the Joneses alone

You better leave ---oh leave--- the Joneses alone

Joneses got a new car today

Here's what you should say; Hooray for the Joneses

Instead you worry 'til your whole head turns gray

Worryin' about the Joneses

Remember it's their car and they're the ones who had to pay

So leave (boom boom) the Joneses alone

 

Your car might be old but remember;

It never fails to get you where you want to go

Don't let the Jones Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Joneses get you down

Don't let the Jones Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Joneses get you down

 

You're doing fine

Don't let the Joneses blow your mind

If you see somethin' you want and

You know you can't afford it

Well the very next thing for you to do

Is start saving towards it

The Joneses have been the downfall of

Many a person you see

So people take my advice and let the Joneses be

 

Don't let the Jones Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Joneses get you down

Don't let the Jones Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Joneses get you down

You're doing fine

 

Don't let the Joneses blow your mind

You're doing fine

Don't let the Joneses blow your mind
