In an innerstate motel
'nother set of sheets need changin
Brain-stained array shaped like a J

Not a drop on Jackie's clothes
Never know when you're in the know
All growed up no place to go

(oh jackie oh)

Maybe I'll wear your polka dot dress
Dot and cross a perfect mess
Bristle a feather in my crest

In a car that runs on bad luck
Don't take long to run amok
New queen of ol' orleans
(Jackie! Jackie!)

Maybe I'll checker in black and white
Or maybe I'll don the dusk tonight
Maybe I'll dress like Rochambeau
Or maybe an invisibility cloak

Jackie ripper made six figures
Didn't pay his taxes on time
Dropped a nickel and it rolled into a dime

Maybe you'll see me there tonight
& maybe you won't
Maybe I'll see you there but you won't see me
Maybe we'll see a little more of ourselves
& a lot less of what we're wearing
Remains to be seen...

Jackie Ripper was a drifter
syphoned a gallon to get out of town
hit it up down in Mexico

(Jackie No! Jackie No!)

Jackie Ripper was a hell of a tipper
silver pound for every round
for the wenches down in Ol' Hades
120 in the shadies maybe
maybe if you are lucky

(jackie says jackie says)

Maybe it's the mercury in my hat
maybe its a belfry full of bats
maybe it's just something i do
maybe i'll do it to you
