Standing on the waters casting your bread
Distant ships sailing into the mist,
Freedom just around the corner for you
Jokerman dance to the nightingale tune,
Ohhhhh, oh, oh,ohhhhh oh oh oh oh Jokerman.
So swiftly the sun sets in the sky,
Fools rush in where angels fear to tread,
Shedding off one more layer of skin,

Bird fly high by the light of the moon,

Manipulator of crowds, you're a dream twister.
But what do you care? Ain't nobody there would want to marry your sister.
You look into the fiery furnace, see the rich man without any name.
Jokerman dance to the nightingale tune,
Oh, oh, oh, Jokerman.
Well, the Book of Leviticus and Deuteronomy,
In the smoke of the twilight on a milk-white steed,
Resting in the fields, far from the turbulent space,

Bird fly high by the light of the moon,

Preacherman seeks the same, who'll get there first is uncertain.
Molotov cocktails and rocks behind every curtain,
Only a matter of time 'til night comes steppin' in.
Jokerman dance to the nightingale tune,
Oh, oh, oh, Jokerman.
It's a shadowy world, skies are slippery gray,
He'll put the priest in his pocket, put the blade to the heat,
And place them at the feet of a harlot.
Oh, Jokerman, you don't show any response.
Jokerman dance to the nightingale tune,
Oh, oh, oh, Jokerman.
