Songtekst

Hello
Wolf,
yeah
Is that you ?
Eh, who's this ?
Cornelius !
Ohoho, Cornelius !
Yeah
Oh, Cornelius,
Listen
Hahahaha, what about
Listen
Yeah, baby, what's up ?
Eh, I'm in trouble
Yeah
My girl just told me to ...



Hit the Road Jack and don't you come back
No more, no more, no more, no more
Hit the Road Jack and don't you come back no more

Hit the Road Jack and don't you come back
No more, no more, no more, no more
Hit the Road Jack and don't you come back no more


Old woman old woman, oh you treat me so mean
You're the meanest old woman that I ever have seen
I guess if you say so
I'll have to pack my things and go

Hit the Road Jack and don't you come back
No more, no more, no more, no more
Hit the Road Jack and don't you come back no more


Now baby, listen, baby, don't you treat me this-a way
'Cause I'll be back on my feet some day
She don't care if you do 'cause it's understood
You ain't got no money, you ain't no good

Well, I guess if she say so
I'll have to pack my things and go (That's right)

Hit the Road Jack and don't you come back
No more, no more, no more, no more
Hit the Road Jack and don't you come back no more
(What'd you say?)


Hit the Road Jack and don't you come back
No more, no more, no more, no more
Hit the Road Jack and don't you come back no more

Hit the Road Jack and don't you come back
No more, no more, no more, no more
Hit the Road Jack and don't you come back no more
Don't you come back no more ...



Well, that's the story, eh, that's the story
I don't know what to do

I tell you baby, you really caught me out, Cornelius
I'm in this old house since 1957 man

I'm here and I said to myself
Listen, my baby kicked me out and I,
eh, got no place to stay

Sure wish I could help you, Cornelius

Oh, I thought I might come out down there,
I heard you got a big mansion

Eh, hold on
Hey, Ray, Ray !
Cornelius says he wants to stay here for the weekend

Hey, Wolf, my three minutes is just about up

Oh, I'm sorry
Ah, eh, ah, Cornelius,
we can't, we can't handle it this weekend

Oh, really ?

So nice to hear from you, man
Bye !

Wolf ?
Hello Wolf ?
Wolf ?

Trivia

Jack. Robert Weston Smith (21 januari 1938 – 1 juli 1995) was een zeer bekende Amerikaanse diskjockey uit de jaren '60 en '70 van de 20e eeuw en bekend onder zijn artiestennaam Wolfman Jack. Zeer karakteristiek was zijn doorleefd en krakend klinkende stem compleet met bijna schreeuwende uitingen waarin een bepaald timbre zat die niemand hem kon evenaren. Todd Rundgren, Leon Russell en Freddie King schreven nummers over hem. De Canadese band The Stampeders vroegen Wolfman in 1975 om mee te doen aan hun cover van het Ray Charles nummer uit 1961, Hit The Road Jack, waarin te beluisteren is dat een man, Cornelius genaamd, die door zijn vriendin op straat is gezet, Wolfman tijdens zijn radio-uitzending opbelt om (tevergeefs) te vragen of hij bij hem kan komen logeren. Ook in de hit Clap For The Wolfman van de Guess Who uit 1974 was hij te horen.
