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 »

We walked out one autumn evening
Someone up there made a fair appear
Colored light that caught our eyes
And reggae music caught our ears

We laughed as they played all the songs
We wanted least of all to hear
I guess that's when I knew
That we'd be more than just good friends
It happened just by chance

Someone up there - someone up there makes the sun and sea
Someone up there - someone up there brought my girl to me
Someone up there - someone up there makes the wind and rain
Someone up there - someone up there took her back again

And just for once
You can't fight back
No messing with the hand of fate
Oh no

The paper ran an ad
That had you running to the other side of town
Working for a man I never could make out
Who started hanging round

Someone up there got me drinking got me drunk
And made me put him down
The way you looked at me I knew
That we'd be coming to an end
It happened just by chance

Someone up there - someone up there makes the sun and sea
Someone up there - someone up there brought my girl to me
Someone up there - someone up there makes the wind and rain
Someone up there - someone up there took her back again

And just for once
You can't fight back
No messing with the hand of fate
Oh no
