<i>Chorus:
<b>Hey, Peppermint Jack
Hey, Peppermint Jack
Hey, Peppermint Jack
Your hair is gray
And your skin is black
Too old they say
So you got the sack</b></i>

I recall that we used to buy
Pepperminds from a lovely guy
He had worked for Icecream Joe
Till he was told he had to go
He said to himself this wise old man:
<i>'Ice is gonna melt but peppermint can't'</i>
So he said to us when we came to school:
<i>'Only peppermint really keeps you cool'
'Only peppermint really keeps you cool'</i>

<i>Chorus</i>

Then one day he didn't appear
When we heard why, we were in tears
Poor old Jack, how little he earned
Went to the place of no return
With a piece of chalk we wrote on his stone:
<i>'Ice is gonna melt, but peppermint won't'</i>
Never more we heard when we came to school:
<i>'Only peppermint really keeps you cool'
'Only peppermint really keeps you cool'</i>

<i>Chorus</i>

Peppermint, peppermint, peppermint Jack
Peppermint, peppermint, peppermint Jack
Peppermint, peppermint, peppermint Jack
