Saturday night and you`re still hangin` around
Tired of livin` in your one-horse town
Like to find a little hole in the ground
For a while

So you go to the village in your tie-dye jeans
And you stare at the junkies and the closet queens
It`s just like some pornographic magazine
And you smile

Captain Jack will get you high tonight
And take you to your special island
Captain Jack will get you by tonight
Just a little push and you`ll be smilin`

Your sister`s gone out. She`s on a date
You just sit at home and masturbate
The phone is gonna ring soon but you just can`t wait
For that call

So you stand on the corner in you New English clothes
And you look so polished from your hair down to your toes
But still your finger`s gonna pick your nose
After all

But Captain Jack will get you high tonight
And take you to your special island
Captain Jack will get you by tonight
Just a little push `n` you`ll be smilin`
La da da, Oh yeah, yeah

So you decide to take a holiday
You got your tape deck and your brand new Chevrolet
Ah but there`s no place to go anyway
And what for...
You`ve got everything, but nothing`s cool
They`ve just found your father in the swimming pool
And you guess you won`t be going back to school
Anymore...

But Captain Jack will get you high tonight
And take you to your special island
Captain Jack will get you by tonight
Just a little push `n` you`ll be smilin`
La da da, Oh yeah, yeah

So you play your albums and you smoke your pot
And you meet your girlfriend in the parking lot
Oh, but still you`re aching for the things you have not got
What went wrong...
And if you can`t understand why your world is so dead
And why you`ve got to keep in style and feed your head
Well, you`re twenty-one and still your mother makes your bed
And that`s too long...

But Captain Jack will get you high tonight
And take you to your special island
Captain Jack will get you by tonight
Just a little push `n` you`ll be smilin`
Yeah, Captain Jack will get you by tonight
Yeah, Captain Jack will get you by tonight
