In Jack’s Juke Joint on Eighth Street,
Jaded men tend to come to meet
Others who use jollification to shun
The ennui that their lives have become.
They jeopardize their good names,
And jettison inhibitions and shame.
With jittery moves they jostle each other,
Jealous when the women choose another.
Their life journeys are compared to junk,
So, their jackassery they try to debunk.
They come to Jack’s to renew their pride,
Each dance considered as another joyride.
