In the dictionary beside the word 'dementia'
Is a picture of your man Jackers
The description reads 'he's off his noodle'
This man is totally crackers
Not a sane thought in his whole damn noodle
Couldn't handle it if there was
Probably freak out and strip down naked
Running hell bent from the fuzz
Now Jackers shouldn't be judged too harshly
He's really a gentle old soul
Just that the years have caught up with old Jackers
He's no longer the one in control
So don't go feeling all depressed for this dude
He's a real happy camper inside
All he knows is he's loved by you friendlies
And he's just along for the ride
