Spring-heeled Jim winks an eye

He'll "do", he'll never be "done to" He takes on whoever flew through "Well, it's the normal thing to do"

Spring-heeled Jim lives to love Now kissing with his mouth full And his eyes on some other fool Ao many women his head should be spinning

Ah, but no! Ah, but no! Ah, no! Ah, no!

Spring-heeled Jim slurs the words: "There's no need to be so knowing Take life at five times your average speed, like I do"

Until Jim feels the chill "Oh, where did all the time go?" Once always in for the kill Now it's too cold and he feels too Old, too old Old...
