Excerpt From A Teenage Opera (2009 Remastered Version) (2009 Digital Remaster) Lyrics

Count the days into years

His eighty two brings many fears

Yesterday's laughter turned to tears

His arms and legs don't feel so strong

His heart is weak there's something wrong

Opens windows in despair

Tries to breathe in some fresh air

His conscience cries get on your feet

Without you Jack the town can't eat

Grocer Jack grocer Jack get off your back

Go into town don't let them down oh no no

Grocer jack grocer Jack get off your back

Go into town don't let them down oh no no

The people that live in the town

Don't understand

He's never been known to miss his round

It's ten o'clock the housewives yell

When Jack turns up we'll give him hell

Husbands moan at breakfast tables

No milk no egg no marmalade labels

Mothers send their children out

To Jack's house to scream and shout

Grocer Jack grocer Jack get off your back

Come into town don't let us down oh no no

Grocer Jack grocer Jack get off your back

Come into town don't let us down oh no no

 

A Sunday morning bright and clear

Lovely flowers decorate the marvellous square

People cry and walk away

And think about the fateful day

Now they wish they'd given Jack

More affection and respect

Little children dressed in black

Don't know what happened to old Jack

Grocer Jack grocer Jack is it true what mummy says

You won't come back oh no oh no

Grocer Jack grocer Jack is it true what mummy says

You won't come back oh no oh no

Grocer Jack grocer Jack is it true what mummy says

You won't come back oh no oh no

Grocer Jack grocer Jack is it true what mummy says

You won't come back oh no oh no
