Jimmy Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
It started out with a few misfortunes
His daddy ran off with some broad from the Motown
When momma said "we're leavin tomorrow"
Jimmy already had his things together
Verse 2
So many days of thinking of the past
The girl he left behind and hanging out in the free streets
Somehow Jimmy had survived his reflections
The broken glass in his hands, a noose before him
Verse 3
Said he did it before
He's gonna do it again
Give him a fix and a bottle and he won't complain
Until he's blue in the face
Jimmy's the leader of a losing race
Verse 4
Hey Jimmy did you learn your lesson?
You always know what you were missing
Hey Jimmy did you solve the problem?
Just a kid with no direction
Verse 5
Some people say it was fright that drove him
But Jimmy knows who's really scared of difference
The whipping boy won't take his beating
It only leaves them alone to their thinking
Verse 6
Of how he knew what they could never know
And he would live and learn
To be himself through his mistakes
Watch and laugh, pretend they were okay
Waiting for things to change is just another day
Verse 7
Said he did it before
He's gonna do it again
Give him a fix or a bottle and he won't complain
Until he's blue in the face
Jimmy's the leader of a losing race
Verse 8
Hey Jimmy did you learn your lesson?
You always knew what you were missing
Hey Jimmy did you solve the problem?
Just a kid with no direction
Verse 9
Hey Jimmy don't you walk away
We'll look at life according to me
You're my life support autobiography
Hey Jimmy take a look inside
Let's take a chance, enjoy the ride
Impressions don't die
No one knew your story
Verse 10
Hey Jimmy did you learn you lesson?
You always knew what you were missing
(Jimmy)
Hey Jimmy did you solve the problem?
Just a kid with no direction
(Jimmy)
Verse 11
Hey Jimmy did you learn your lesson?
You always knew what you were missing
(Jimmy)
Hey Jimmy did you solve the problem?
Just a kid with no direction
(Jimmy)
Verse 12
Hey Jimmy now you're free
