Jack & Diane
John Mellencamp Lyrics


A little ditty 'bout Jack & Diane
Two American kids growing up in the heart land
Jack, he's gonna be a football star
Diane's debutante, back seat of Jacky's car

Suckin' on chilli dog outside the Tastee Freez
Diane sitting on Jacky's lap
Got his hands between her knees
Jack he says
"Hey, Diane, let's run off behind the shady trees
Dribble off those Bobby Brooks
Let me do what I please"

Saying "Oh yeah
Life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone"
Saying "Oh yeah
Life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone"
They walk on

Jack he sits back, collects his thoughts for the moment
Scratches his head, and does his best James Dean
"Well then, there, Diane, we ought to run off to the city"
Diane says
"Baby, you ain't missing nothing"
But Jack he says, yeah

"Oh yeah, life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone"
"Oh yeah"
He's saying "Life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone"

Oh, let it rock, let it roll
Let the bible belt come and save my soul
Holdin' on to sixteen as long as you can
Change is coming 'round real soon
Make us women and men

"Oh yeah, life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone"
"Oh yeah"
He's saying "Life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone"

A little ditty 'bout Jack and Diane
Two American kids doin' the best they can

@Samantha Marston If it quacks like a duck etc...chances are it is a duck!You sound like a bleeding heart leftist-liberal to me.(or left-ish as it was called back in the day.) In any case,it doesn't matter what I think or even what you think,it's what the "Squad" and Antifa/BLN commanders think.They consider you "a used idiot."Hey maybe we'll be lined up the wall together.Look out for the older gentleman who still looks good!🤡

@Uncle Smart Aleck Beijing Biden? Is that a new anime? XD Look dude, I'm a Libertarian, if you're trying to call me a liberal, it's not gonna work. Also, alpha male? The fact that you believe that term says it all. All I did was show you that the party of "traditional family values" is not as clean and wholesome as you seemed you were trying to make it out to be. How can a person preach about wanting everyone to follow such 'values' like one lifelong marriage, no sex outside of marriage, no cheating, marriage itself, and biological kids when they themselves do not yet they linchmob anyone who does not?

Uncle Smart Aleck

@Samantha Marston Still a HUGE difference between an alpha male with a big ego and libidos and an evil monster who assaulted a woman.(besides the creepy child-sniffing)Yes I say "assulted" because your side was ready to bury Kavanaugh for claims with a fraction of the validity of those made against Beijing Biden.
