Pet Shop Boys Jack The Lad Lyrics

Lawrence in the desert, how was he to know

Under so much pressure from the men back home?

Play with fire, you must be mad

Are you only Jack the Lad?

Play with guns, you must be bad

Or hiding something, Jack!

Telling lies in public, breaking codes at home

Underneath the blankets, for another role

Tell these lies, you must be mad

Are you only Jack the Lad?

To feast with panthers every night

You must be careful, Jack!

Don’t let them try to restrain you

This is your only religion

Don’t let them try to detain you

You’re not the only fool

We all fall, even Jack the Lad

We all fall, even Jack the Lad

Will fall

Philby in the desert

Looking for a phone

Waiting on the pavement

For a call from home

Play with fire, you must be mad

Are you only Jack the Lad?

Turn your back on friends you had

They must have hurt you, Jack!

Don’t let them try to restrain you

This is your only religion

Don’t let them try to detain you

You’re not the only fool

We all fall, even Jack the Lad

We all fall, even Jack the Lad

Don’t let them try to restrain you

This is your only religion

Don’t let them try to detain you

You’re not the only fool

We all fall, even Jack the Lad

We all fall, even Jack the Lad

Will fall…
