Jefferson was always out of luck
I remember when we both grew up
Jefferson got hit by a westbound truck
I guess that didn't make him look like a million bucks
That night when Sally really stole the show
And every boy was captured diggin' for gold
Poor old Jefferson was left in the snow

I'm gonna pray for Jefferson Pray for Jefferson's soul

Jefferson is always on my mind
When him and me were runnin' out of time
Jefferson was sure enough left behind
The cops came in and took him by surprise
That night when Sally really showed her game
The neighbourhood would never be the same
Poor old Jefferson got the blame

I'm gonna pray for Jefferson Pray for Jefferson's soul

I do believe he didn't do wrong
I say a prayer for someone I care for

That night where Sally really gave it all
And made us small boys look quite tall
Poor old Jefferson left the ball

    General CommentThis is perhaps THE MOST ADDICTIVE Roxette song EVER. I can't tell you how many times I've put the CD on repeat for this one. Per's vocals are just so darling, and of course Marie is great during the chorus. I'm really not too sure what the song is supposed to be about--it's kind of cryptic and almost morbid to me at some points. But the beat is fun and the computer-generated slides more than appropriate for such a weird, contagious song from Roxette's latest album.
