Fontaines D.C. – Jackie down the line

– D.C. Jackie Down the Line
(Do do do
La la la)

My friend Sally says she knows ya
Got a funny point of you
Says you got away with murder
Maybe one time maybe two
Something happens in the morning
When I can’t see those failing eyes
I can’t find a good word for you
Does it come as a surprise?

I don’t think
We’d rhyme
I will wear you down in time
I will hurt you
I’ll desert you
I am Jackie down the line

Said did Sally ’bout a future
Before you bored of her as well
If all you want is entertainment,
If you can’t have it, you make hell.

Don’t make no odds for ye
To be told yeah
Don’t make no odds for ye
To be told yeah

I don’t think
We’d rhyme
I will wear you down in time
I will hurt you,
I’ll desert you
I am Jackie down the line.

I don’t think
We’d rhyme
I will make your secrets mine
I will hate you
I’ll debase you
I am Jackie down the line.

(Do do do
La la la)

So come on down to Sally’s boneyard
See her spirit in decline
See the handsome mourners crying
They hawked a beating heart for a sturdy spine, yeah

What good is happiness to me
if I’ve to wield it carefully?
For care I’ll always come up short,
It’s only right.

I don’t think
We’d rhyme
I will wear you down in time
I will hurt you
I’ll desert you
I’m one Jackeen of a line.

I don’t think
We’d rhyme
I will take up all your time
I will chew you
I’ll go through you
I am Jackie down the line.

I don’t think
We’d rhyme
I will make your secrets mine
I will hate you
I’ll debase you
I am Jackie down the line.

and I will stone ye
I’ll alone ye
I am Jackie down the line.
If I can make you,
I can break you
I am Jackie down the line.
I am Jackie down the line.

(Uuh Shalala
Uuh shalala
Do do do
La la la)
