Just a girl who can't say no
And her sweetheart on parole
Her parents named her Jupiter
To bless her with a lucky soul

He's the boy who never cried
When they locked him up inside
And she nicknamed him her teardrop
For the tattoo by his eye

Now she's sleeping in her bed
And he's sleeping in her bed
And it's Jupiter and Teardrop
And it's Jupiter and Teardrop

She divined by radio
Pushing buttons show to show
And she wonders about the fate of
Lovers in the barrio

She forgets after a while
When she tunes in on the dial
Jackie Wilson's Lonely Teardrops
And she drives another mile

Now she's sleeping in her bed
And he's sleeping in her bed
And it's Jupiter and Teardrop

And they want to have a child
Walk together down the aisle
But the world we live in is mean
And it's built on sheer denial

The 'phone rings, it's for her
"I got to see ya Jupiter"
"I'm in trouble with the law"
"Bring my .38 caliber"

Now she's sleeping in her bed
As she pulls the 'phone plug dead
And it's Jupiter and Teardrop
