Lyrics

People gather round me It's to whom it may concern I'm not trying to run your life But you're never too old to learn 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 Don't let the Joneses, don't let the Joneses Don't let the Joneses, get you down oh down One more time don't let the Joneses Don't let the Joneses, don't let the Joneses Don't let the Joneses, get you down oh down Oh, you may not believe it but nine times out of ten it's true The people you're trying to keep up with Are trying to keep up too Remember that old saying All that glitters ain't gold Take heed, don't ignore it Until your money time will hold Oh don't let the Joneses, don't let the Joneses, Don't let the Joneses, get you down oh down Hear me now, now Don't let the Joneses, don't let the Joneses, Don't let the Joneses, get you down oh down

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 You know it makes your life a mess Bill collectors, tranquilizers And getting deeper in debt You better leave the Joneses alone Tell 'em one more time You better leave oh leave the Joneses alone Ah ha the Joneses got a new car today Here's what you should say That's fine for the Joneses Instead you worry Till your whole head turns grey Remember it's their car and They're the one who had to pay So leave the Joneses alone Listen your car might be old But remember it never fails To get you where you want to go Don't let the Joneses, don't let the Joneses, Get you down oh down Hear me now Don't let the Joneses, don't let the Joneses, Don't let the Joneses, get you down oh down You're doing fine Don't let the Joneses get you down 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 The Joneses are one in town For how many persons you see So people take my advice and let the Joneses be Don't let the Joneses, get you down oh down Don't let the Joneses, don't let the Joneses, Don't let the Joneses, get you down oh down You're doing fine Don't let the Joneses get you down You're doing fine Don't let the Joneses get you down
