The Jam Live 1981

I've been wearing this song out for the last week. Not bad considering it's an mp3 file. This is one of my favorite Jam songs and I would've loved to have seen them perform it live. Instead, I'll just have to make do with a YouTube video instead. Please feel free to leave a comment...especially those that lurk! Go on, you know you want to say something...



Lyrics for The Jam & Pretty Green:

I've got a pocket full of pretty green -
I'm gonna put it in the fruit machine -
I'm gonna put it in the juke box -
It's gonna play all the records in the hit parade -

I've got a pocket full of pretty green -
I'm gonna give it to the man behind the counter -
He's gonna give me food and water -
I'm gonna eat that and look for more -

This is the pretty green - this is society -
You can't do nothing - unless it's
in the pocket - oh no -

I've got a pocket full of pretty green -
I'm gonna put it in the fruit machine -
I'm gonna put it in the juke box -
It's gonna play all the records in the hit parade -

This is the pretty green - this is society -
You can't do nothing - unless it's
in the pocket - oh no -

And they didn't teach me that in school -
It's something that I learnt on my own -
That power is measured by the pound or the fist -
It's as clear as this oh -

I've got a pocket full of pretty green -
I'm gonna put it in the fruit machine -
I'm gonna put it in the juke box -
It's gonna play all the records in the hit parade -

I've got a pocket full of pretty green -
I'm gonna give it to the man behind the counter -
He's gonna give me food and water -
I'm gonna eat that and look for more -

This is the pretty green - this is society -
You can't do nothing - unless it's
in the pocket - oh no -

I've got a pocket full of Pretty Green!
