About Jack-Ass

"Jack-Ass" is a single by Beck, taken from the album Odelay. The song is based on a sample of "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue", performed by Them, from their 1966 album Them Again. The B-side, "Strange Invitation", is a re-recorded version of "Jack-Ass", played on acoustic guitar and strings and forecasts the style Beck would later use on Sea Change in 2002.

 Struggling with Jack-Ass? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

I been drifting along in the same stale shoes 
Loose ends tying the noose in the back of my mind 
If you thought that you were making your way 
To where the puzzles and pagans lay 

I'll put it together
It's a strange invitation 
When I wake up someone will sweep up my lazy bones 
And we will rise in the cool of the evening 
I remember the way that you smiled 
When the gravity shackles were wild 

And something is vacant when I think it's all beginning 
I been drifting along in the same stale shoes 
Loose ends tying the noose in the back of my mind 

If you thought that you were making your way 
To where the puzzles and pagans lay 
I'll put it together: It's a strange invitation
