Joe Jackson

Joe Jackson (born David Ian Jackson, 11 August 1954) is an English musician and singer-songwriter now living in Berlin, whose five Grammy Award nominations span from 1979 to 2001. He is probably best known for the 1979 hit song and first single "Is She Really Going Out with Him?", which still gets extensive US FM radio airplay; for his 1982 hit, "Steppin' Out"; and for his 1984 success with "You Can't Get What You Want (Till You Know What You Want)". He was popular for his pop/rock and New Wave music early on before moving to more eclectic, though less commercially successful, pop/jazz/classical hybrids. more »

Wake up this mornin' and the paper's on the mat
Poor gettin' poorer and the rich are gettin' fat again
Up in the towers, all the bosses sittin' sneezin'
A-half asleep and the rest all start to squeezin' tight
Don't worry 'bout it baby, don't try to understand
You got the answer in your hand

Throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away!

Wake up this morning, there's a letter on the mat
Big brother want to know where little brother's at again
Life is a piece of paper, goes on forever
Sign on the dotted line or end up in the river drowned
Don't worry 'bout it baby, don't try to understand
You got the answer in your hand

Throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away!

Wake up this morning, there's a letter on the mat
Big brother want to know where little brother's at again
Life is a piece of paper, goes on forever
Sign on the dotted line or end up in the river drowned, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down
Don't worry 'bout it baby, don't try to understand
You got the answer in your hand

Throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away
Why don't ya throw it away
Throw it away
J-just throw it away
Throw it away
Throw it away!
