Little Jack (The Velvet Underground)

I was raised in better days, mostly by myself No-one ever took the time or was inclined to help Mother dear, she was never near, she left me to the street A little boy who was not too tall, with dirty hands and feet Little Old Jack, you best stay back; Susie keep away Though my life was lily-white, was all I heard them say Hey hey Now I'm grown, I'm on my own, running free and wild Not inclined to be entwined with a Mrs and a child Though my dear it may seem queer, it keeps me in the black Should you depart to break my heart, don't bother looking back Little Old Jack, you best stay back; Susie keep away Though my life was lily-white, it's all I heard them say Hey hey... get in! Now I'm grown, I'm on my own, running free and wild Not inclined to be entwined with a Mrs and a child Though my dear it may seem queer, it keeps me in the black Should you depart to break my heart, don't bother looking back Little Old Jack, you best stay back; Susie keep away Though my life was lily-white, was all I heard them say Hey hey... oh! Little Old Jack, you best stay back; Susie keep away Though my life was lily-white, was all I heard them say Little Old Jack, you best stay back; Susie keep away Little Old Jack, you best stay back; was all I heard them say Oh... Little Old Jack, you best stay back; Susie keep away Little Old Jack, you best stay back; was all I heard them say
