He lived in the sand at the Isle of Man

The kids couldn't hurt Jack

They tried and tried and tried

They dropped things on his back

And lied and lied and lied and lied and lied

 

But they couldn't stop Jack or the waters lapping

And they couldn't prevent Jack from feeling happy

They tried and tried and tried

They dropped things on his back

And lied and lied and lied and lied and lied

 

But they couldn't stop Jack or the waters lapping

And they couldn't prevent Jack from feeling happy
