Jade Bird - I Get No Joy Lyrics

Military march
In and out my head
Everything I did
Everything I said
Take you to the arch
For your happiness
Or spend it like a lark
Singing for nothing

I get no joy
I get no joy
All the words my mother said
Can't seem to get them out my head
Everything becomes everything
You live, you learn, you love, you're dead
I get no joy

Together and apart
Do it all again
Right back to the start
Straight up to the end
I'm such a fool
Got everything and you
Yet my heart is so blue
I'm singing for nothing

I get no joy
I get no joy
All the words my mother said
Can't seem to get them out my head
Everything becomes everything
You live, you learn, you love, you're dead
I get no joy

I swear that I don't pay attention
If I did, would intervention come to me in a dream?
Or is that just what the directors and the pills and
Other deflectors would have you believe?
Psychotic, hypnotic, erotic; which box is your thing?
Fact how many days a week
Do you feel
Electric, connected, unexpectedly affected?
What do you need?
What do you need?

I get no joy
I get no joy
All the words my mother said
Can't seem to get them out my head
Everything becomes everything
You live, you learn, you love, you're dead
I get no joy

I know the sun will shine
Another day another time
I know the sun will shine
Another day another time
I know the sun will shine
I know the sun will shine
Electric, connected, unexpectedly affected
What do you need?
What do you need?

I get no joy
I get no joy
All the words my mother said
Can't seem to get them out my head
Everything becomes everything
You live, you learn, you love, you're dead
I get no joy
I get no joy

No joy

  12. Finn Lander


  13. Nugsy Malone

    Yea if you could go ahead and stop making music, that would be fantastic.

  14. Sho

    I really loved the visuals in the video. I felt like the video talks about a girl who was in a toxic relationship and always changed her actions to suit his needs and it made her sad. She continued acting for him till she realised she no longer wants to do it anymore. She decides to leave the relationship altogether and this leaves him confused because she could no longer be manipulated and thus is no longer in his control. I loved the vocals and the power behind the song. Loved it. Much love to Jade Bird for such a beautiful song.

  15. I T S O K ENQ

  30. Jason

  31. Herwan Dinata

    Ahh...Ahh...Ahh I get no job

  34. ARIEZ YT

    A Public Forum for Discussion

  35. Frank Fonteyne

    Son and heir production? Like "How soon is Now?" by the Smiths?

  36. eric Pedraza

    Sorry, but i hate this song

  37. Kev'z Sab'z

    This girl needs to be nominated for the Best New Artist category this coming Grammy Awards 2020.

  38. Mystychrysm The Human Prism

    I can't THIS SONG outta my head for some reason. It reminds me of Alanis Morrisette doing her impression of Bare Naked Ladies.

    Mystychrysm The Human Prism

    I was up all night b/c I'm sick and out of nowhere I heard the verses in my mind but had no clue what it was and then "I get no.... (wait for it & finally) joy". And BAM then it repeated all night to the beat of my throbbing headache. Naturally I had to hear it today!


    Are you aware this song is being used to psychologically torture employees of Superstore in Canada? We have to hear it three times per shift, have for at least six months now. Every single employee hates this song, some of them may have become fans of yours but not now. If the playlist they run everyday is nationwide, there are probably thousands of Canadians who despise this song. Also your lyrics are nearly unintelligible, it took me months of closely listening to figure out enough lyrics to google it and find this track. That part after the chorus where you sing fast, you may as well be making technical deathcore here, can understand a single syllable. Anyways, I hate this song with a fiery passion, every time I hear you go into the part before the chorus, where you make warbling sounds or whatever, I want to scream. I want to scream and scream and smash everything around me. And it IS psychological torture, being forced to hear the same songs every day for a long time. I believe your label has probably licensed this out to "safe" playlists for retail stores. I would try to get off those playlists as fast as  you can, unless you want more people to hate your music.Nice voice you have tho. Shame I hate your music.


    If we, as humans, were given infinite time and resources, we could not create anything worse than this piece of shit song. Actually, all of her songs suck. I honestly believe that anyone who likes her "music" is retarded, evil, insane, or all three.

    Brutal - the "Groundhog Day" of being a performer!

  50. Richard Bool

  51. maria

  52. Павло Різник

    Perfect voice!

  53. NaughtyVampireGod

    Jade Bird said, "I don't want a MIDDLE-AGED WHITE MAN telling me how to write my feelings." Nice. She managed to be racist, sexist, and ageist all in one sentence. And, no, it's not all right, or excusable, or trying-to-make-a-point or whatever the apologists may say in her defense.

  54. jesus lamuño

    i love for you :* <3

  68. I Luv No Sleep

    I work at Wendy's at this song manages to play 4 times ever hour, for the whole day. It has become somewhat of a meme at this point. Every few times within the hour someone will yell out "Hey, its that ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh song again"

  69. Sneha Tiwari

    I am just amazed by how much her voice resembles indian folk singer Ila Arun.
    Listen to her 'Resham ka rumal' or 'Bichhuda' for proof :p
