"Hey! It's Jimmy Mack" as written by Eddie Argos and Dyan Genevra Valdes....
Hey, it's Jimmy Mack
Yeah, I heard your track
And if that's your attitude
I'm never coming back
Ever

Absence makes the heart grow fonder
But it made you want to wander
You don't care about me when I'm not near
You go for a long wander off a short pier

Did you do this to make me jealous?
Singing songs about other fellas?

Hey, it's Jimmy Mack
Yeah, I heard your track
And if that's your attitude
I'm never coming back
I've not been gone that long
It definitely doesn't deserve a song

Yeah, it's Jimmy Mack
I heard your track
And if that's your attitude
I'm never coming back
I've not been gone that long
You definitely didn't need to write a song

I can see what's happening, I'm not surprised
Of course your friends are all on your side

Who's this guy, hangin' around?
Being persistent, wearing you down
Come on, now, more resistance
True love lasts long distance

Did you do this to make me jealous?
Singing songs about other fellas?

Yeah, it's Jimmy Mack
I heard your track
And if that's your attitude
I'm never coming back
Yeah, it's Jimmy Mack
I heard your track
And if that's your attitude
I'm not coming back

Did you do this to make me jealous?
This song's to let you know I couldn't care less
Singing songs about other fellas?
This song's to let you know I couldn't care less

Hey, it's Jimmy Mack
Yeah, I heard your track
And if that's your attitude
I'm never coming back
I've not even been gone that long
There was no need to write a song
Did you do that to make me jealous?
Singing songs about other fellas?

Hey, it's Jimmy Mack
Yeah, I heard your track
And if that's your attitude
I'm never coming back
I've not even been gone that long

    Song MeaningA response to "Jimmy Mack" by Martha Reeves and the Vendellas, in which Martha laments that her faithfulness is wavering while Jimmy Mack is away, as she is being wavered by a boy "just as sweet" as Jimmy, and she "can't hold out much longer". It was Eddie's concern that this song had been miswritten and needed fixing that led to the entire French Resistance project: Dyan suggested that the two of them fix it, and so they did. Their version is Jimmy's answer to his girlfriend's failing to remain true.

    In Eddie's words:
    Jimmy Mack heard Martha's song. So he's never coming back.
