"Jet Boy" as written by and David/thunders Johansen....
Whoso fly up in th' sky
Faster than any boy could ever describe
Who's got that love so deep
And everything alive

(I said)
Jet Boys fly
Jet Boys gone
Jet Boy stole my baby

Flying around New York City so high
Like he was my baby

This's the kinda place where no one cares
What your living for
And Jet Boys so preoccupied
He don't care 'bout before

(That's why)
Jet Boys fly
Jet Boys gone
Jet Boy stole my baby

Flying around New York City so high
Like he was my baby

My baby

Jet Boys fly
Jet Boys gone
Jet Boy stole my baby

Flyin around New York City so high
Like he was my baby

We was all endangered charms
Swear we're havin fun
And Jet Boy knows all we done
That's why he's the one

(That's why)
Jet Boys fly
Jet Boys gone
Jet Boy stole my baby

Flyin around New York City so high
Like he was my baby

My pretty baby
My pretty pretty baby
My pretty baby

When I first came around this dump
I knew I couldn't stay
Cause up above the world are Jet Boy
That's why I gotta play

(Don't ya know that)
Jet Boys fly
Jet Boys gone
Jet Boy stole my baby

Flying around New York City so high
Like he was my baby [Repeat: x5]

Jet Boys fly
And ya know he's gone
I said he been gone,
Gone, gone gone

And he been flying
And he been flying
He been flying
He been flying

Baby up all night
Baby New York City
Baby so so high
Baby so so high

(Don't know that)
Like he was my baby
Like he was my baby
Like he was my baby

Like he was my my my my baby
My my my my baby
My my my my
My baby
My baby, my baby
M-m-m-m-m-my baby
My baby

    General Commenti'm almost 100% sure i'm wrong, but the way i interpret this song is there's a guy, and he's got a girl, and he's paranoid about other guys (jet boys) flying around and threatening to steal his girl.

    General Commenti think jet boy is someone living in the fast lane. trying not to have a dull moment in hteir life. and when they sense a dull moment comming they leave at dull moment and continue living as fast as they can

    "We was all endangered charms
    Swear we're havin fun
    And Jet Boy knows all we done
    That's why he's the one

    (That's why)
    Jet Boys fly
    Jet Boys gone "

    you can see there thats where i got htat from. just abotu someone living life to the fullest taking alotta drugs probaly so he always feels high.

    General CommentJet Boy seems to be a term for young boys interested in or discovering their homosexual feelings. Thus the lyrics are quite self explaining.

    General CommentI think the comments are generally right. A dude that is just an overall happy dude that just running around the city having fun. Based on the height references, he's probably indulging in some drugs.

    He stole the narrator's girl probably she was interested in his drugs (Flying around New York City so high, Like he was my baby").

    The narrator is concerned with his lost girlfriend, but it doesn't sound like he necessarily hates Jet Boy for it. Idk if he is as interested in drugs as Jet Boy and his girlfriend though. I get the feeling he is relatively clean. The "endangered charms" stanza seems to be him saying that they are trying to have fun without drugs. Also "when I first game around this dump, I knew I couldn't stay" might be him saying he can't stand the drug culture of the Jet Boys despite the good time they are having.
