about

The Kingdom of Jones Sydney, Australia

The Kingdom of Jones take their inspiration from those time honoured traditions: hard work, no work, tight credit, no credit, lonely nights & cold, cold hearts, from the dusty desperation of the thirties to the tear stained bar mats of the seventies, all gathered round the magic lantern listening to the whispers of the past singing about today. ... more

Track Name: Mama
Mama mama mama mama
what's been going on?
the days are so short
and the nights are so long
and all I really wanna do
is sing our song
if I sing it to you
will you sing it to me too?
if I sing it to you
will you sing it to me too?
Mama mama mama mama
take me to the new drug store
I got a need my love a need for something more
and they got something up their sleeves
I can't ignore
if I bring it to you
will you bring it to me too?
if I bring it to you
will you bring it to me too?
I got a song to sing and it's a million dollar tune
and I've been singing it to myself
underneath the moon
now all I really need is someone to sing it to
and that's you
and that's you
that's true
Mama mama mama mama
what's been going on?
the days are so short
and he nights are so long
and all I really wanna do
is sing our song
if I sing it to you
will you sing it to me too?
if I sing it to you
will you sing it to me too?

Track Name: Piglet
Hey now piglet with a sow
piglet with a sow
oh yeah rust is on the plough
fox is on the prowl
you've seen it all by now
ribbons on a fence
where we going now?
ribbons on a fence
where we going now?
oh no chasing down my junk
living in a trunk
chasing down my junk
strapping on my skates
time to slide on by
rating my mistakes
she's the brakes
oh no the dog is getting old
he's BURIED IN THE YARD
but only just his bones
ribbons on a fence
where we going now?
ribbons on a fence
where we going now?
strapping on my skates
time to slide on by
rating my mistakes
she's the brakes

lyrics Paul Scott & Adam Griffiths (c) 2013
Track Name: Sorrows
You can't drown my sorrows
sorrow can't be drowned
this feeling rises up with me
when morning comes around
well I tipped my sorrows in a glass
and I filled it to the brim
and i drank it in one shot
and filled it up again
you can't drown my sorrows
sorrow can't be drowned
this feeling rises up with me
when morning comes around
well I took my sorrows to the sea
and I cast them in
seems my sadness didn't sink
the sorrow learned to swim
you can't drown my sorrows
sorrow can't be drowned
this feeling rises up with me
when morning comes around
well I tied my worries in a sack down by the riverside
and I sank them in a waterhole and left no tracks to hide
but as I left the rivers edge a voice called from inside
you can't drown my sorrows
sorrow can't be drowned
this feeling rises up with me
when morning comes around
you can't drown my sorrows
sorrow can't be drowned
this feeling rises up with me
when morning comes around

Track Name: When I grow up to be a man
I'll treat my woman right
I won't stay out all night
I'll try and be a proper gentleman
I'll help around the home
my hair I'll cut and comb
I plan on doing anything I can
oh I'll be your pride and joy
I'll be a good ol' boy
when I grow up to be a man
I'll end my errant days
and cease my worried ways
I'll try and stick exactly to the plan
my manners I will mind
you'll see me as refined
I'll even lengthen my attention span
oh I'll be your pride and joy
I'll be a good ol' boy
when I grow up to be a man
when I grow up to be a man oh lord
you'll see a change, a change in me
and my old friends they won't understand
when I grow up
to be a man
I'll quit my drinkin' gin
and tuck my shirttails in
I'll be baby Jesus biggest fan
I'll put my guns away
and even save some pay
for the day I ask you for your hand
oh I'll be your pride and joy
I'll be a good ol' boy
when I grow up to be a man
when I grow up to be a man
when I grow up to be a man oh lord
you'll see a change, a change in me
and my old friends they won't understand
when I grow up
to be a man

Track Name: Spinning wheel
There is a house
Upon a hill
I loved it then
I miss it still
Gave up my child
My new wed wife
To pursue
The gambling life
Oh spinning wheel
You pay the band
You mark my deck
The sinner’s hand
Here in the land
Where shadows end
I am winning
While I’m losing again
The devil’s pact
I made my mark
It’s darkness lit me
With a spark
No man can hide
The cards he holds
I’ll read you face
Right to your soul
Oh spinning wheel
You pay the band
You mark my deck
The sinner’s hand
Here in the land
Where shadows end
I am winning
While I’m losing again
Last hand I played
I played today
The cards were true not one did stray
They tried to cheat me
And shot them all
Now I await
The hangman’s call
Oh spinning wheel
You pay the band
You mark my deck
The sinner’s hand
Here in the land
Where shadows end
I am winning
While I’m losing again

lyrics Paul Scott (c) 2013
Track Name: Forgive me
Love's not a prison
no bars on your heart
but I serve a sentence
each time we part
miles of barbed wire
walls high and wide
with one lonely prisoner
waiting inside
won't you forgive?
please change your mind
say you'll wait for me
while I'm doing time
for all my offences
for all of the hurt
for my misdemeanors
for all of the dirt
won't you forgive?
please change your mind
say you'll wait for me
while I'm doing time
I've taken my chances
I played my last hand
I left with the dancers
and I broke up the band
won't you forgive?
please change your mind
say you'll wait for me
while I'm doing time

lyrics Paul Scott (c) 2013
