Ow, people gather round me, it's whom it may concern
I'm not trying to run your life

But you're never too old to learn, huh

Stop worrying about your neighbors and the fancy things they got
'Cause if you do you'll find it sure, you're gonna wind up on the spot

Don't let the Jones, don't let the Jones
Don't let the Jones get you down, oh down

One more time

Don't let the Joneses 
Don't let the Jones 
Don't let the Joneses 
Get you down, oh down

Woo, woo oh oh oh

Huh, you may not believe it but nine times out of ten it's true
The people you're trying to keep up with

Are trying to keep up too

Remember that old saying, all that glitters ain't gold
Take heed, don't ignore it until your money time will hold, oh

Don't let the Jones 
Don't let the Jones 
Don't let the Joneses 
Get you down, oh down

Hear me now, now

Don't let the Joneses 
Don't let the Jones 
Don't let the Joneses 
Get you down, oh down

Who-har-har-who-who, who-har-har-do-do-do-do

You're lying to yourself but you don't even know it
You're so busy following the Joneses, you ain't got time to show it
Keeping up with the Joneses, it'll only makes your life a mess
Bill collectors, tranquilizers and getting deeper in debt

You better leave
The Joneses alone
Tell 'em one more time
You better leave, oh leave
The Joneses alone

Joneses got a new car today
Here's what you should say
Harray for the Joneses
Instead you worry till your whole head turns gray
Worry 'bout the Joneses

Remember it's their car and they're the ones who had to pay
So leave Jo-Jo-Joneses alone
Listen, your car might be old, but remember it never fails to get you where you want to go

Oh, don't let the Jones 
Don't let the Jones 
Don't let the Joneses 
Get you down, oh down

Hear me now, now.

Don't let the Joneses 
Don't let the Jones 
Don't let the Joneses 
Get you down, oh down

Do do do do do do
Do do do do do do

You're doing fine
Don't let the Joneses get you down
Now listen, if you see something you want and you know you can't afford it
The very next thing for you to do is start saving towards it
The Joneses have been a downfall for many persons, you see
So people, take my advice and let the Joneses be, ow

Don't let the Jones 
Don't let the Jones 
Don't let the Joneses 
Get you down, oh down

Hear me now, now

Don't let the Joneses 
Don't let the Jones 
Don't let the Joneses 
Get you down, oh down

You're doing fine
Don't let the Joneses get you down. (Who)
You're doing fine
Don't let the Joneses get you down. (Who)

Do do do do do do 
Do do do do do do
