You don't mess around with Jim - Joe Dassin - 1979


You don't mess around with Jim
(You don't mess around with Jim)
1979

(Jim Croce)

Durée : 3'15


 
Les Paroles
Uptown's got its hustlers
The Bowry's got it's bums
Forty-second street's got Big Jim Walker
He's a pool-shootin' son of a gun
Well he's big and dumb as a man can come
But he's stronger than a country hoss
And when the bad folks all get together at night
You know they all call Big Jim "Boss"
Just because... and the say :

"You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask of the old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim !"

Well out of South Alabama come a country boy
He said : "I'm lookin' for a man named Jim
I am a pool-shootin' boy, my name is Willie McCoy
But back home they call me Slim
He said I'm lookin' for the king of forty-second street
He's drivin' a drop-top Cadillac
Because he took all my money, and it may sound funny
But I come to get my money back"
And everybody say : "Jack, don't you know that ?...

You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask of the old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim !"

Well a hush fell over the pool room
When Jimmy come boppin' in off the street
And when the cuttin' was done,
The only part that wasn't bloody
Was the soles of the big man's feet
He was cut in 'bout a hundred places
And he was shot in a couple more
And you better believe they sung a different kind of story
When Big Jim hit the floor
Now they say :

"You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask of the old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Slim !"

Spoken :
Ya, big Jim got his
Find out where it's at
And it's not hustling people strange to you
Even if you do got a two piece costume made pool cue

If you don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask of the old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Slim !
