Papa Jack
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Aye Jack, the women quarreling
Papa Jack, you ain't hear she grumbling?
Me ain't know what you didn't do
But the women is annoyed with you
Since ah know she, I never see she so blue
She say you're a sleepy-head
You're only working but you're really dead
Ah shame to tell you how much gossip the women spread

She say you're getting old and you're getting cold and boring
Any time she call on you you're snoring
Time to shake a leg meh lad and do your duty even though it hard
It is man like you does make good women turn bad

Aye Jack, way you wake up this jezebel?
Papa Jack, she ponging you like hell
Meh ain't tell you to knock she down
But your name dragging on the ground
Every minute of the day she wagging she tongue
Telling people how you're underfed
And how your pencil ain't got no lead
And when she married to you she was out she head

She say you're getting old and you're getting cold and boring
Any time she call on you you're snoring
Time to shake a leg meh lad, do your duty even though it hard
It is man like you does make good women turn bad

Aye Jack, you got to find a solution
Papa Jack, your name in too much confusion
Cut out all your rum-drinking
Keep your body back in trim
I think phosphorine will be just the thing
Be a man and not a mouse
Put some pepper in she souse
You want to show this louse who's boss in the house

And how the hell she mean:

You're getting old and you're getting cold and boring
Any time she call on you you're snoring
Time to shake a leg meh lad, do your duty even though it hard
It is man like you does make good women turn bad

Look Papa Jack, the gossip gone too far
Aye Papa Jack, she want to spoil your character
Every morning she in floods of tears
Telling the neighbours 'bout your home affairs
Well how the Devil you could stand that for so much years?
If was me and she keep carrying on this way
Making meh romance look like child play
Ah tell you Jack, ah see she bedroom 'fore she birthday

Let she say:

You're getting old and you're getting cold and boring
Any time she call on you you're snoring
Time to shake a leg meh lad, do your duty even though it hard
It is man like you does make good women turn bad

I love this song but I do enjoy more of Sparrow's songs.  Am playing them 'cos tomorrow would have been my Dad's birthday and he just loved Sparrow's tunes.   This song is from one of the same albums that my Dad had.  Wish you were still here, Dad.
