Don't Let The Joneses Get You Down Lyrics

Artist: The Temptations

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

Melvin: But you're never too old to learn, huh.

Dennis: 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.

Eddie: Don't let the Jones
Dennis: Don't let the Jones
Melvin: Don't let the Joneses
Group: Get you down, oh down.

Dennis: One more time.

Group: Don't let the Joneses
Dennis: Don't let the Jones
Group: Don't let the Joneses
Group: Get you down, oh down.

Woo, woo-oo-oo-oo

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

Melvin: Are trying to keep up too.

Eddie: Remember that old saying, "All that glitters ain't gold".
Take heed, don't ignore it until your money time will hold. Oh

Eddie: Don't let the Jones

Group: Get you down, oh down.

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

Dennis: 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.

Eddie: You better leave...
Group: The Joneses alone.
Dennis: Tell 'em one more time.
Eddie: You better leave, oh leave...
Group: The Joneses alone.

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

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

Eddie: Oh, don't let the Jones
Dennis: Don't let the Jones
Melvin: Don't let the Joneses
Group: Get you down, oh down.

Eddie: Hear me now, now.

Group: Don't let the Joneses
Dennis: Don't let the Jones
Group: Don't let the Joneses
Group: Get you down, oh down.

Do-do-do-do-do-do...(ect.)

Group: You're doing fine.
Don't let the Joneses get you down.
Paul: 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.
Dennis: The Joneses have been a downfall for many persons, you see.
So people, take my advice and let the Joneses be. Ow.

Eddie: Don't let the Jones
Dennis: Don't let the Jones
Melvin: Don't let the Joneses
Group: Get you down, oh down.

Eddie: Hear me now, now.

Group: Don't let the Joneses

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

Do-do-do-do-do-do...(ect.) Boom-boom-boom-boom...(ect.)
