The Lyrics


He got married for the PR—never got his p*cker out.
Now we're talking 'bout Jackson 'cause he likes to buy cub scouts.
Kids are "knowing" Jackson. He likes to mess around.
Yeah, they're knowing Jackson.
See Jackson get down.

When they get down on Jackson; he gives them some of his wealth.
When none can still stand, he'll unglove his hand, and "Jackson-five" himself.
They get down on Jackson—he grabs 'em by the hair.
Funny face like a snowball, Jackson.
Is he bleached there?

He lets 'em squeeze on his dickie, after they have made their bow.
When they've finished, he will breach them, even if they're screaming, "Ow!"
They get down on Jackson after he opens his coat.
They get down on Jackson; he shows them how to throat.

After they've quaffed some of Jackson, he'll let 'em ride his pony, Greg.
He'll lead 'em around until another round
Of them tucked in between his legs.
They go to Jackson, that high-talkin' man (?).
And yet still waiting on Jackson—all his benighted fans.

He got married for the PR—never got his p*cker out.
Now we're talking 'bout Jackson 'cause he likes to buy cub scouts.
If kids go to Jackson, they're gonna hit the rack.
After they've known Jackson, they will have a sore back.

Still theme-in' today, eh John? You know, I've never heard Cash's version of this, but loved it by Nancy and Lee's version. Good job!

Yes! I have to ask you, was it censored with the "*" or did you do that? Can't believe Meriadoc has never heard the JC version - I didn't know there was any other besides Johnny and June Carter, but I remember the TV show.

I used the "*" to thwart censorship.

Well done, John. It seems like such an obvious fit of topic and original song, you wonder why nobody thought of it before, but you deserve credit for being the first. It's too bad you didn't do this parody a week or two sooner so you could have entered it in the ABC contest for parodies starting with J.

The original was the source for Prefab Sprout's name after Paddy MacAloon misheard the line 'hotter than a pepper sprout'.
