EXCERPT FROM A TEENAGE OPERA (GROCER JACK) (composer : West) Keith West - 1967 Count the days into years Yes, eighty-two brings many fears Yesterday's laughter turns to tears His arms and legs don't feel so strong His heart is weak, there's something wrong Opens windows in despair Tries to breathe in some fresh air His conscience cries, "Get on your feet Without you, Jack, the town can't eat". REFRAIN: Grocer Jack, Grocer Jack, get off your back, go into town, don't let them down, oh no, no. Grocer Jack, Grocer Jack, get off your back, go into town, don't let them down, oh no, no. The people that live in the town, don't understand - he's never been known to miss his round. It's ten o'clock, the housewives yell "When Jack turns up, we'll give him hell". Husbands moan at breakfast tables, no milk, no eggs, no marmalade labels. Mothers send their children out, to Jack's house to scream and shout. + REFRAIN It's Sunday morning, bright and clear, lovely flowers decorate a marble square. People cry and mourn away, think about the fateful day, Now they wish they'd given Jack more affection and respect, The little children, dressed in black, don't know what's happened to old Jack. SECOND REFRAIN Grocer Jack, Grocer Jack, is it true what Mummy said, you won't come back. oh no, no. (rep. and fade) (Transcribed by Alan Stewart - March 2003)
