Lyrics

Well I’m no fool; I’m a thief with a midnight torch
and I ripped this tune right off your porch,
do you like it?

I’m a one eyed jack and I skew the facts,
I’m a rip off, I’m an actress, and I’m yours.
Well I’m a lover, I’m a liar, and you ain’t seen
nothing yet. Cause this one eyed jack’s gonna
love ya for a long, long time.

Well now you say I’m losing my mind and
if I wreck your truck one more time I’m in trouble.
I swear I wasn’t drinking, I just wasn’t really thinking,
when I hit the mail box . . . . again.

Maybe you’re right and I’m crazy,
and you ain’t seen nothing yet,
cause this one eyed jack’s gonna
love ya for a long, long time.

And you’ll be saying in the morning
“Where’d that money go on my bed side table?”
Well I take one beer from the six pack,
and then I run it through the scanner, and
then I walk off with the whole thing for a buck.

Well I’m a cheater I love to plagiarize,
a little devil in disguise, won’t you love me?
I’m a one eyed jack and I skew the facts,
I’m a rip off, I’m an actress, and I’m yours.
I’m a lover, I’m a liar, and you ain’t seen nothing yet,
cause this one eyed jack’s gonna
love you for a long, long time. Awe baby I’m gonna love you, love you, love you, love you, love you for a long, long, time.
