Joker James, you did it again, caused somebody pain

(he's a joker... he's a joker... he's a joker)

|D A |D A |D A |D

You lived up to your name, Jimmy, Joker James

(he's a joker, he's a joker, he's Joker James)

Sally was a stamp collector, pretty little girl

|G |Gm/Bb |D

One day she dated James, bringing love into her world

|D |Gm/Bb |D |Gm/Bb

A tense romantic moment as they sat down on the couch

|D A/C# |G/B D/F#|A A |A

The whoopee cushion roared and I'm afraid it's over now

 

Joker James, you did it again, caused somebody pain

(He's a joker...)

You lived up to your name, didn't you, Joker James

 

Lucy was a cool one, always got her high

Then she dated James and true love took her higher

The jester had suggested a new way to get stoned

Put itching powder down her neck and now she's all alone

 

Joker James, you did it again, caused somebody pain

You lived up to your name, didn't you, Joker James

 

|G |A

Sense of humor cannot woo her

You just threw another wheeze her way

Wizard pranks won't get you thanks

You just threw another love away

 

|E |E+#5 |E6 |E7

Alice was a different kettle, always wore a smile

|A |Am/C |E

Her skin felt like heaven and laughter all the while

|E |Am/C |E |Am/C

Her sense of humor throws him and deep in love he falls

|E B/Eb |A/C# E/Ab |B B |B

But when he tries to sign the paper, the rubber pencil falls

 

|E B |E B |E A |E A |E

Joker James, you're not to blame, the joke's on you, now you're blue

A |E B |E B |E |

It's such a shame, but that's the game, Joker James

 

Joker James, you did it again, caused somebody pain

You lived up to your name, Jimmy, Joker James
