Go to the club or the bar or wherever the Jumbos are found in the town your band is booked to play in.
It's always a little bit harder to score if it's just your first time in a town you've never hit before.


GO TO THE CLUB OR THE BAR!
GO TO THE CLUB OR THE BAR!
GO TO THE CLUB OR THE BAR OR WHEREVER THE JUMBOS ARE FOUUUNNND!

Cause we got a little Jumbo
Rockin' through the night.
Yeah, we got a little Jumbo,
Ain't she a beautiful sight?
Come on and smell our Jumbo
Ain't nothin' gonna get in our way.
We gonna roll this truckin' Jumbo
'Cross the U-S-A.
Jumbooooooo!

Tell me Jumbo, Jumbo, Jumbo
Say its me that you adore
And then darling tell me when

Say its me that you adore
And then darling tell me when

Whoa lover tell me when
Oh darling tell me when
Oh come on tell me when

Lines form on your face and feet
Lines form from the ups and downs
You're in the puddle without any plans
You're not a boy and not a man

You're Jumbo and you don't know what you want
Jumbo you just don't know what you want
Jumbo you gotta get away
You gotta get out of this place
Go runnin' to an outdoor space oh yeah

Jumbo you got a baby's brain and an old man's heart took you thirty years to get this far
Don't always know what you're talkin' about looks like you're livin' in the middle of a drought

'Cause you're Jumbo and get confused every day Jumbo you just don't get enough hay Jumbo you gotta get away

Whoa lines form on your face and your feet
Lines form on the left'n'right'n'front'n'back
You're in the middle the middle of life
You're not a boy and not a man

You're Jumbo and you like it
Yes you like it
Oh you like it love it like it love it
Jumbo Jumbo Jumbo you're Jumbo and you like it

...Jumbo Jumbo Jumbo you're Jumbo and you like it

jumbo was gone for fourteen days but
coulda been gone for more
held up in the intensive care ward
lyin' on the floor

jumbo was gone for all those days but
jumbo was not all alone
jumbo made friends with a lot of people
in the danger zone

see jumbo's lonely life unfold
see it every day
see jumbo's only mind explode
since jumbo's gone away

jumbo lost some weight there and
i'm sure jumbo needs some rest
sleepin' don't come very easy
in a straight white vest

jumbo liked to see the little children
she's only four years old old
jumbo gave her back all of her play things
even even the ones jumbo stole

Billion dollar Jumbo
Rubber little Jumbo, slicker than a weasel
Grimy as an alley
Loves me like no other Jumbo
Billion dollar Jumbo
Rubber little monster, Jumbo, I adore you
Man or woman living couldn't love me like you, Jumbo
We go dancing nighty in the attic
While your moon is twerking in my eye
If I'm too rough, tell me
I'm so scared your little trunk will come off in my hands
I got you in the dimestore
No other little girl could everhold Jumbo
Any tighter, any tighter than me,
Jumbillion dollar Jumbo
Reckless like a gambler, million dollar maybe
Foaming like a monkey that's been infected by ebola
We go dancing nighty in the attic
While your moon is twerking in my eye
If I'm too rough, tell me
I'm so scared your little trunk will come off in my hands
Million dollar Jumbo
Billion dollar Jum
Trillion dollar Jumbo
Zillion dollar Jumbo

"Jumbo"

Ah, look at Jumbo
Ah, look at Jumbo

Jumbo picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been
Lives in a dream
Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?

Jumbo
Where does she come from?
Jumbo
Where does she belong?

Father McKenzie writing the words of a sermon that Jumbo will hear
Jumbo comes near
Look at him working, darning his socks in the night when there's no Jumbo there
What does he care?

Jumbo
Where does she come from?
Jumbo
Where does she belong?

Ah, look at Jumbo
Ah, look at Jumbo

Jumbo died in the church and was buried along with her name
Nobody came
Father McKenzie wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave
Jumbo was not saved

Jumbo (Ah, look at Jumbo)
Where does she come from?
Jumbo (Ah, look at Jumbo)
Where does she belong?
