Happy Jack wasn't old, but he was a man
   D            D           A7      D
He lived in the sand at the Isle of Man

The kids would all sing, he would take the wrong key
        D           D             A7    D
So they rode on his head on their furry donkey

    G        
The kids couldn't hurt Jack
     A
They tried and tried and tried
     G
They dropped things on his back
    Asus4             A                 Asus4    A
And lied and lied and lied and lied and lied

But they couldn't stop Jack or the waters lapping
And they couldn't prevent Jack from feeling happy

| A    | D    | A    | D    | A    | D    | A    | D   Dsus4 |

But they couldn't stop Jack, or the waters lapping
And they couldn't prevent Jack from feeling happy

| A A  | A A  | A A  | A A  | A.......

The kids couldn't hurt Jack
They tried and tried and tried
They dropped things on his back
And lied and lied and lied and lied and lied

But they couldn't stop Jack or the waters lapping
And they couldn't prevent Jack from feeling happy
