Goodbye Jack. Kerouac.

Well, I'm sitting in the sun
Drinking wine, having fun
Goodbye Jack.
Kerouac.

Got a car. Got a girl.
Take a trip around the world
Goodbye Jack.
Don't look back.

Is it yes, is it no,
I don't care. We gotta go.
Goodbye Jack.
Don't come back.

North Beach. Maybe winter.
Help me, please. I'm a sinner.
Goodbye Jack.
Kerouac.

New York, and Orlando.
Jazz. San Francisco.
Goodbye Jack.
Kerouac.

Four wheels and a rosary.
God is my destiny.
Goodbye Jack.
Don't look back.

Bonne soir et bonne nuit.
Kissa me, my cherie.
Goodbye Jack.
Don't come back.

5 am in the morning.
Pack your bags, man, we're going.
Goodbye Jack.
Kerouac.

Well, goodbye and good night.
I hope you sleep tight.
Goodbye Jack.
