The Lyrics

Little ditty bout Jack and his Jill
Two good folks, strugglin up a hill
Together they're luggin a pail of water
Hoping for a happy everafter

Goin down the hill it starts to freeze
Water turns to ice, Jill starts to sneeze
Jack says hey lets huddle here together
We're gonna beat this bitter, nasty weather

And Jill says
Oh yeah, this hill's rough
But you and me baby, we are tough

Jill sits back and rubs her hands together
Can't wait to make it down the hill
She's dreamin of sittin home by the fire
Gotta keep warm on a night so chill

Oh yeah, this hill's rough
But you and me baby, we are tough

Carry this pail
Keep control
Get this water home now--
That's our goal
Hold the pail together as long as you can
It's a long, long journey for a woman and man

Little ditty bout Jack and his Jill
Two good people comin' down a hill

Sweet !

Yes, it is sweet... Incidentally, something you may not know about Jack and Jill: the second verse
Up Jack got and home did trot
As fast as he could caper
Went to bed to mend his head
With vinegar and brown paper
...vinegar and brown paper being a popular method of treating syphilis, back in the days before antibiotics... puts a slightly different complexion on things, don't you think?

Phil---you're hilarious---your comment was what this parody really needed, at least for me
Phil Alexander - November 14, 2003 - Report this comment
It's true, too: my uncle was a pharmacist, and it was he who told me about the cod remedy for syphilis. As it happens, that was pretty much the last conversation we had before he died of a heart attack - but it's just the sort of memory he'd like to have left behind. I always smile and think of him whenever I hear Jack and Jill, now.

Funny and original, and dare I say poignant!

I've heard that verse, Phil, but just thought it was to cure his head.
Wild Man - November 14, 2003 - Report this comment
Very creative Royce. And Phil, vinegar and brown paper to treat the dreaded Spirocete, never heard of that home remedy. Interesting though.

I hope this parody cures us of the huge ego of that little man, John Mellencamp Finklestein.
Phil Alexander - November 17, 2003 - Report this comment
Adagio - yes it was to cure his head... just not the one atop his neck ;-)

Oops, Phil...I walked right into that one! lolol
