Lyrics

Oh-yeah
oh-yeah
Jackie is a punk
and Judy is a runt
they went down to The Mudd Club
and they both got drunk
oh-yeah
oh-yeah

Jackie is a bookie
and Judy's taking loans
they both came up to New York
just to see The Ramones
oh-yeah
oh-yeah

oh I don't know why
she wrote that letter
I don't know why
we can't forget her
oh-no

Jackie's playing hooky
Judy's playing pool
they both got caught for cutting
now they're going to summer school
oh-yeah

Jackie's playing hooky
Judy's getting rammed
they both got kicked outside
they ain't got no time
na na na
oh-yeah
oh-yeah

oh I don't know why
she wrote that letter
oh yeah
I don't know why
we can't forget her
oh-no

Oh-yeah
oh-yeah
Jackie is a punk
and Judy is a runt
they went down to The Mudd Club
and they both got drunk
oh-yeah
oh-yeah

Jackie's playing hooky
Judy's playing pool
they both got caught for cutting
now they're going to summer school
oh-yeah
