lyrics

'Give me my jack! I want my jack back!'
'What are you talking about? I don't know about a jack.'
'Someone's took my jack and I want it back.
It was outside my door and now it's gone – who's got it?'
'I haven't got your jack, you must have forgot where you put it.'
'I didn't forget anything – it was there and someone took it.
It's mine and someone took it and I want it back.
I need it – you find it – you get me back my jack!'


'How would I know where your jack is if I didn't take it?
What do you think I'm going to do with a jack?'
'One of your friends has got it – all the time,
they're traipsing through this place. One of them saw
the jack against my door and they took it
on their way out! – you'll phone them and you'll get it.'
'None of my friends have took your jack!'
'Give it! Get it! I want my jack – I need it back!'


'And I told you I haven't got it.'
'Your friends-!' 'They haven't got it!'
'You can't be sure!' 'Listen! – you must've misplaced it. Lost it.'
'You brought the trouble to this house
You brought the trouble brought the trouble brought the trouble to this house...


and I'm sick of it!'
You brought the trouble to this house – I'm sick of it, sick of it
You brought the trouble to this house – I'm sick of it, sick of it
You brought the trouble to this house – I'm sick of it, sick of it
You brought the trouble to this house – I'm sick of it, sick of it


'Oi – hey – what's going on?'
'One of his friends took my jack!'
'No – he lost it. I don't know anything about what happened to his jack.'
'You saw it.'


'When?' 'Sitting against my door –
till someone walked by and took it.'
'Listen–' 'I want it back! I want it back!'
'Listen a second-' 'Someone took it!'


'I want my jack! I want my jack back!
Give me my jack – I want my jack back...
Give me my jack – I want my jack back...
Give me my jack – I want my jack back...
Give me my jack – I want my jack back...
Give me my jack – I want my jack back...
Give me my jack – I want my jack back...
Give me my jack – I want my jack back...


...picked up my jack – one of your friends....!
Look – I want it back...I want my damn jack back!!!'
'You're not listening to me!'
'I'm sick of it!'
'I'm done – you're not listening.'


'Come back you-' <bang, thump> '– no!' 'Ey!'
'...my jack back-' 'Ah!' <scuffle> '...you...!' 'Heh stop this - this isn't...'
'I want it back!' <crash> 'Ah!'
'You brought the trouble to this house!'
You brought the trouble brought the trouble brought the trouble to this house.


'Ah...huh! – uh...' 'I told you to stop it!'
'Let him go!' 'Then keep him back!'
<stumble> 'You brought the trouble in this house!'
'Shut up!' 'Up you get...'


'My....'
