L'il Tommy Jones

L'il Tommy Jones L'il Tommy Jones, what you got in your pocket?
I got me a frog, hop hop-a-day long
I found him after school by the hop-a-long pond
There he was a'sitting, singing hop-a-long songs

L'il Tommy Jones, what you got in your pocket?
I got me a frog, hop hop-a-day long
Every Sunday morning Tommy found himself in church
Listened to the preacher tell him how the lord works

L'il Tommy Jones, what you got in your pocket?
I got me a bible, hop hop-a-day long
Tommy's getting older, now he's got himself a job
Cleaning off the tables in the fancy motor lodge

L'il Tommy Jones, what you got in your pocket?
I got me some money, hop hop-a-day long
Now has come his time to learn just how to drive a car
With money, looks, and wheels, Tommy's bound to go far

L'il Tommy Jones, what you got in your pocket?
I got me a license, hop hop-a-day long
Now Tommy's got a girlfriend, and they're really in love
They really like the movies, and the starry nights above
L'il Tommy Jones, what you got in your pocket?
I got me a condom, hop hop-a-day long

His woman up and left him when he started to drink
The higher Tommy got, the lower he would sink
L'il Tommy Jones, what you got in your pocket?
I got me some whiskey, hop hop-a-day long

Tommy started dealing with some drugged out fiends
Heroin, and crack, and even PCP
L'il Tommy Jones, what you got in your pocket?
I got me a gun, hop hop-a-day long

Tommy got arrested, and was sent to jail
There he sat for many years, 'cuz no one paid his bail
L'il Tommy Jones, what you got in your pocket?
I got nothing, hop hopaday long

Tommy served his time and straightened out his life
Now he's got a baby, and a beautiful wife
L'il Tommy Jones, what you got in your pocket?
I got me a mortgage, hop hop-a-day long

Tommy lived a long life, and he lived it quite well
He learned from his mistakes, and he had stories to tell
So if you're ever down by the hop-a-long pond
Listen real close, you might hear this song

L'il Tommy Jones, what you got in your pocket
I got me a frog, hop hop-a-day long
L'il Tommy Jones, what you got in your pocket
I got me a frog, hop hop-a-day long
I got me a frog, hop hop-a-day long
