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 »

There's a guy goin' round the town
You got to check what he is puttin' down
Just one look you know the story is great
He's the guy the chicks love and the cats can't hate

He's a shape in a drape
A shape in a drape
He's a shape in a drape
And you can dig that he is stookin'

Now some say he's a clipster and a tailor's toad
And he could hype a miserman for all his gold
Some say he's a hipster and some say nix
But everyone's solid when he gets his kicks

He's a shape in a drape
A shape in a drape
He's a shape in a drape
And he is sure alive and kickin'
