Poor Jack

Poor Jack

This song starts after Jack survives the explosion and sings about his guilt of the mess he made and chooses to stay as the "Pumpkin King".


What have I done?
What have I done?
How could I be so blind?
All is lost. Where was I?
Spoiled all. Spoiled all.
Everything's gone all wrong.

What have I done?
What have I done?
Find a deep cave to hide in
In a million years, they'll find me.
Only dust and a plaque
That reads "Here Lies Poor Old Jack."

But I never intended all this madness. Never!
And nobody really understood. Well, how could they?
That all I ever wanted was to bring them something great!
Why does nothing ever turn out like it should?

Well, what the heck? I went and did my best.
And by God, I really tasted something swell. That's right!
And for a moment, why, I even touched the sky!
And at least I left some stories they can tell. I did.

And for the first time since I don't remember when,
I felt just like my old bony self again.
And I, Jack, the Pumpkin King!
That's right, I AM the Pumpkin King! Ha, ha, ha, ha!

And I just can't wait until next Halloween
'Cause I've got some new ideas
That will really make them scream
And by God, I'm really gonna give it all my might
Uh-oh! I hope there's still time to set things right.
Sandy Claws! Hmm...
