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

Ow people gather round me

It's whom it may concern

 

I'm not trying to run your life

But you're never too old to learn

Stop worrying about your neighbors

And the fancy things they got

'Cause if you do you'll find it sure

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 oh down

One more time

 

Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Joneses

Get you down oh down

 

You may not believe it

But nine times out of ten it's true

 

The people you're trying to keep up with

Are trying to keep up too

 

Remember that old saying

 

"All that glitters ain't gold"

 

Take heed don't ignore it

Until your money time will hold oh

 

Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Joneses

Get you down oh down

Hear me now now

 

Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Joneses

Get you down oh down

 

You're lying to yourself

 

But you don't even know it

 

You're so busy following the Joneses

You ain't got time to show it

 

Keeping up with the Joneses

 

It'll only makes your life a mess

 

Bill collectors tranquilizers

 

And getting deeper in debt

You better leave

 

The Joneses alone

 

Tell 'em one more time

You better leave oh leave

 

The Joneses alone

 

Joneses got a new car today

 

Here's what you should say

Hurray for the Joneses

 

Instead you worry till your

Whole head turns gray

 

Worry 'bout the Joneses

 

Remember it's their car

And they're the ones

Who had to pay

 

So leave Jo-jo-joneses alone

 

Listen your car might be old

 

But remember it never fails

To get you where you want to go

Oh don't let the Jones

Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Joneses

Get you down oh down

 

Hear me now now

 

Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Joneses

Get you down oh down

 

Don't let the Joneses get you down

 

Now listen

If you see something you want

 

And you know you can't afford it

The very next thing

For you to do is

Start saving towards it

 

The Joneses have been a downfall

 

For many persons 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 oh down

 

Hear me now now

Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Jones

Don't let the Joneses

Get you down oh down

 

You're doing fine

 

Don't let the Joneses get you down

 

You're doing fine

 

Don't let the Joneses get you down
