Jerks on the Loose

On the way home from work today I sang along with the Roches’ Jerks on the Loose (several times, very loud). I feel better, somehow.

Keep on Doing What You Do/Jerks on the Loose

Nobody round here knows what happened to you
No one will ask you to explain
You have your arm around a drastic measure
All of your efforts down the drain

There might be something here you could get into
Or just be quiet by yourself
ooooooo…
Stare at the stuff up on the shelf

You work too hard to take this abuse
Be on your guard jerks on the loose

Look who did it to you
Joker over there with nothing to do
Don’t let ’em get through
Keep on doing what you do

Why don’t you listen to my little pep talk
Instead of what that person said
And now I’m gonna open up the window
And you will come in off that ledge

You work too hard to take this abuse
Be on your guard jerks on the loose
Jerks on the loose
Jerks on the loose
