Cookie jar Lyrics

Cookie jar by Jack Johnson  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



Cookie jar I would turn on the TV
But it's so embarassing
To see all the other people
I don't know what they mean
And it was magic at first
When they spoke without sound
And now this world is gonna hurt
You better turn that thing down
Turn it around

Well it wasn't me, says the boy with the gun
Sure, I pulled the trigger, but it needed to be done
Because life's been killing me ever since it begun
You can't blame me cause I'm too young

Well you can't blame me
Sure, the killer was my son
But I didn't teach him to pull the trigger of the gun
It's the killing on the TV screen
You can't blame me
It's those images he's seen

Well you can't blame me, says the media man
Well I wasn't the one who came up with the plan
And I just point my camera at what the people wanna see
Man, it's a two-way mirror
And you can't blame me

Well you can't blame me, says the singer of the song
Or the maker of the movie, which he based his life on
It's only entertainment and as anyone can see
It's smoke machines and makeup
Man, you can't fool me

It was you, it was me, it was every man
We've all got the blood on our hands
We only receive what we demand
And if we want hell, then hell's what we we'll have

I would turn on the TV
But it's so embarassing
To see all the other people
Don't even know what they mean
And it was magic at first
But let everyone down
And now the world is gonna hurt
You better turn it around
Turn it around
