Don't Let The Joneses Get You Down Lyrics

Don't Let The Joneses Get You Down - The Temptations

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
