​Jones Boy

This song is by Tom Paxton and appears on the album Saturday Night (1976).

I bought a car; a beauty
It was sexy, it was neat
It made me feel about ten feet tall
To turn the ignition key
I bought a brand new barbecue
And I put it in my yard
And every morning's mail
Brought another credit card

I am a Jones boy
Try keepin' up with me
I am a Jones boy
No way to keep up with me
I am a Jones boy
Try keepin' up with me
I am a Jones boy
No way to keep up with me

I bought myself Bermuda shorts
I bought a Nehru coat
I bought myself a turtleneck shirt
I hung beads around my throat
I'm right on the top of every trend
There ain't nothing I can't dig
Now wait until you catch me
In my brand new Afro wig

I am a Jones boy
Try keepin' up with me
I am a Jones boy
No way to keep up with me
I am a Jones boy
Try keepin' up with me
I am a Jones boy
No way to keep up with me

Now my refrigerator makes ice cubes
And for just nine-hundred more
It plays the hits in stereo
When you open up the door
My TV set is six feet high
And it also dries my hair
My telephone has a musical tone
To tell you I ain't there

And I am a Jones boy
Try keepin' up with me
I am a Jones boy
No way to keep up with me
I am a Jones boy
Try keepin' up with me
I am a Jones boy
No way to keep up with me
