Man and his wife lived in a shack
Had a mule, he named him Jumping Jack
Because he done jumped out, oh, I mean he done jumped out
Even down to his wife, crying about him jumping out

As he jump out every night, half past ten
Every time he jumps out, puts him back again
Because he done jumped out, oh, I mean he done jumped out
Even down to his wife, crying about him jumping out

Said, the woman told the man, "Jack ought to be dead"
"Jump out every night after you go to bed"
Because he done jumped out, Lord, I mean he done jumped out
Even down to his wife, crying about him jumping out

Oh, yeah

Man told his wife, "Ought to be ashamed"
"Jack was dead, he'd be out just the same"
Because he done jumped out, oh, I mean he done jumped out
Even down to his wife, crying about him jumping out

I ain't no airplane, sure can't fly
Jumping out kill me, won't you please let me die
Because he done jumped out, oh, I mean he done jumped out
Even down to his wife, crying about him jumping out
