Yankovic, Weird Al - Jackson Park Express Lyrics

[Verse 1:]
Tuesday morning, 8: 15
I was riding to work on the
Jackson Park Express
Seemed like any other day
Then my whole world changed
In a way I never could have guessed
Cause she walked in
Took the seat right across the aisle
I knew we had a special connection
The second I saw her smile

She smiled as if to say
"Hello, Haven't seen you on this bus before"
I gave her a look that said
"Huh, Life is funny, you never know what's in store
By the way, your hair is beautiful
I bet it smells like raisins"

She looked at me in a way that asked
"Did you have a nose job or something?
I'm only asking, cause your nose looks slightly better
Than the rest of your face"
I arched my eyebrow, ever so slightly
Which was my way of asking
"Do you want my old Hewlett-Packard printer?
It still works, Kinda
And I got a bunch of ink cartridges left"

Then, she let out a long sigh
Which, I took to mean, "Uh"
"Mama, What is that deodorant you're wearing?
It's intoxicating
Why don't we drive out to the country sometime?
And collect deer ticks in a zip-lock baggie", Oh yeah

I gave her a penetrating stare
Which could only mean
"You are my answer, my answer to everything
Which is why, I'll probably do very poorly
On the written part of my driver's test"

Yes, It all happened
On the Jackson Park Express
On the Jackson Park Express
On the Jackson Park Express
On the Jackson Park Express

[Verse 2:]
I knew she was starting to fall for me
Cause she crinkled her nose, which unmistakably meant
"Baby, let's wear each other's clothes
And speak in a thick German accent
And, maybe someday we can own and operate
Our own mobile pet-grooming service"
I couldn't hold back my feelings
I gave her a look, that said
"I would make any sacrifice for your love
Goat, chicken, whatever
I could never hold you close enough
Let's have our bodies surgically grafted together
Oh, surgically grafted together"

She picked up her newspaper, and started reading to herself
Which I'm sure, was a way of telling me
"When you're cold, I will warm you
When you're shivering, I will hold you
When your nauseous, I will give you Pepto-Bismol every hour
For as long as the symptoms persist"
Oh, I, I never, ever want to see you cry
So, please let me cauterize your tear ducts with an arc welder
Then, I glanced down, at her shirt, for a second
In a way that clearly implied
"I like your boobs"


[Verse 3:]
I cleared my throat quietly, and then, I looked away
And I'm sure it was obvious to her, just what I was trying to say
I was trying to say, "Hey
I'd like to make a wall-sized mural out of all the dead skin cells
That you slough off while you sleep at night"
Whoa-o-Oh, "I'd like to rip you wide open
And french-kiss every single one of your internal organs
Oh, I'd like to remove all your skin, and wear your skin, over my own skin
But not in a creepy way"

Then, I'm pretty sure, she looked at me, out of the corner of her good eye
And, though, she never spoke a word, this is exactly what I heard
She was saying, "Oh!
I wanna make out with you, in an abandoned toll-booth, in the middle of a monsoon
I wanna ride dolphins with you, in the moonlight
Until the staff at Sea World kicks us out
I want you inside me, oh, like a tapeworm"

I pointed to the side of my mouth, as a way of indicating
"Hey, I think you got something on the side of your mouth"
She licked the corner of her lips, as if to say
"Here? ", I nodded, implying, "Yeah, you got it"

And, then the bus stopped, at 53rd Street, and she got up suddenly
"Where are you going? ", pleaded my eyes, "Baby, don't you do this to me
Think of the beautiful children we could have someday
We could school them at home, Raise them up the right way
And protect them from the evils of the world
Like Trigonometry and Prime Numbers, oh no
Baby, please don't go"

She brushed my leg, as she left the bus
I'm sure that was her way of saying
"I'm sorry this just isn't working out
You're suffocating me
I need some space to find out what life's all about
So, goodbye forever, my love"

And deep inside, I knew she was right
It was time for us both to move on
And though, I never got her number, oh no no
She never bothered to leave her address, oh
But, as long as I live, I'll never forget
Those precious moments we shared together

On the Jackson Park Express
On the Jackson Park Express
On the Jackson Park Express
On the Jackson Park Express
On the Jackson Park Express
On the Jackson Park Express
On the Jackson Park Express
On the Jackson Park Express

Yankovic, Weird Al Jackson Park Express Comments
  1. Good At Nothing

    He should turn this whole show into a DVD


    You were still great since over 30 years ago

  3. A Random Channel

    I’m so happy I found this channel

  4. Mediocrity

    Hey, have you guys heard that they're developing anti-aging? Yeah, what a perfect generation for it to happen, right?

  5. Jason Tempel

    This is a psychopathic hysteria

  6. James&Renee Wirtz

    Weird Al should make a parody of the magic songs like Pilot-Magic or Do you believe in Magic or Abracadabra or The Cars-Magic.

  7. TheBrokenCalculator

    "But not in a creepy way." The best and most informative line in the song.

  8. True Christian

    I remember back in the 80's and 90's when Weird Al used to make wholesome, family-friendly albums that anyone of any age could listen to and enjoy. Yet now he's making this obscene filth which is suitable for adults only. How shameful on Al's part that he has betrayed his own self and apparently sold out to the devil.

  9. Bolonium

    This is amazing! "Weird Al" and Redrocks are a match made in heaven! Check out our channel too… We love to hear your feedback on our Videos. Bolonium is a Denver Geek Rock band with lots of Zany Music Videos, packed with psychedelic visuals. Cartoons, B-Movies, DEVO and “Weird AL.” & More inspired the only band that is full of Bolonium !

  10. gopnik pineapple

    Make a parody of the Beatles but with anti-vaxxers and call it the measles.

  11. John Kraus

    Still going strong 💪

  12. Azrikail

  16. Niferno

  17. Repair Department

    You prolly get tons of "Ideas" request and suggestions like you should do this, you should do that...etc. And you must be SOOOOOO sick of it. Here's one more. Hall And Oats ( of course the kids will know who they are) But instead of Maneater, There may be something with "Braneater"... Look out, here she comes

    At first, I thought he was referring to Chicago's public transportation bus called the Jackson Park express.

  48. Petriccione's Channel

    We love you Al! Thanks for all the fun & happiness you’ve given me, my friends, & family Mr. Yankovic!!

  49. saiyajedi

    I saw him at his 40th birthday concert in 1999, and he hasn’t aged a day. Maybe put on a few pounds, but that’s about it.

  50. Charlotte Outlaw

    Al, I love you!!! I was at your strings attached concert!!!

  51. Andy Gilleand

    The mixing is a bit off

  52. Anthony Jenkinson

    Just another day on the bus really......

  53. Patrick Lange

    I think it would be the perfect time to make a sequel to UHF because of all the streaming services out there! It could poke fun at all of the streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Apple TV+, Disney Plus, CBS On Access, NBC Peacock, etc. You could called it "UHF On Demand".

  54. cereal bananas

    Did the channel name change?

  55. WhatisaGoodName

    You should make a parody of one of bad lip readings songs

  56. Matthew Bateman

    Wow, I'm so proud of this guy.

  57. Mike Tice

    I would love to see this legend live!


    This must be an original not a parody?

  59. Musical Commentary

    Love this.

  60. Dennis Price

    Saw this in Ft. Wayne, In. My wife's first Weird Al concert. She is one of us now! Bwahahaha!

  61. Derek Dudes

    Where is this song from, originally? Was it a parody of another song, or an original song?

  62. Kegan Potter

    I was at this show! Let's goooooo!

  63. Matthew Burras

    This is by far the most adult and dirtiest song I've ever heard Weird Al sing or otherwise talk and a general form

  64. LunarScorpio

    Is this similar to the inner monologue of an incel? Lol

  65. Johnny O'Hern

    Aw yay, glad something got a licensed release. I know how ridiculously expensive it would have been to do the whole show. Thank you, Al. Good song choice. We know how proud you are of JPE.

  66. turbonut20v

    i leaned back hard when he threw that high kick wth

  67. Hannah Miyamoto

    Maybe it's just me, but this meandering song reminds me of Meatloaf.

  68. Owen Johnzon


  69. ReddSouljah

    I'm in my thirties and Weird Al is the only thing in my life that never changed. That makes me happy.

  70. Sam Loeffler

    I never thought there was a way to improve the music of Weird Al. But if there ever was a way, I knew that it would involve a 90-piece orchestra.

  71. Zachary Adams

    I'm gonna flex on y'all with the fact I gone to the tour

  72. John Huber

    I was able to see this guy when he came to my town of Syracuse, Best Birthday / Christmas Gift EVER! (My parents bought the tickets for me for Christmas.)

  73. machinaeZER0

    THAT WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!
    EDIT: And Lisa Popeil!!!! Hah! Amazing!!!

  74. Music Sucks

    Idk why I thought that was Ozzy Osborne in the thumbnail for half a second

  75. Mr. Satyre

    This song wasn't good before it was parodied.


    So..............what's the original?

  76. Nikolai Antonov

    Are you going to make a parody of Michael Jackson's Billie Jean called Jelly Beans? This idea has been in my head for a while.

  77. Michael Bannister

    I hope you have a Canadian tour soon and have stops in Red Deer Alberta Canada and Edmonton Alberta Calgary Alberta


    Al just finished touring Canada.

    Michael Bannister

    @chickadee thank you

  78. Jbot123

    This is destined to become the most popular wedding song ever.

  79. Sheen Camel

    I was there I got sideswiped in the parking lot and spilled all my flavor aid

  80. Jesus Freak

    Love on the bus, I think there is a website about that.

  81. Jennie Damerell

    Oh Al, you're so funny and weird, it never fails 🤓😆

  82. Ronald Beasley

    I was there!!!!

  83. Johan Eights

    This man will never age.

  84. Theoddfarmer videos

    It's is so awesome

  85. Kristine Spencer

    Don’t care for this one.


    I like 90% of this song, there's a couple of lines I don't care for.
    I wonder why that 10% bugs me so much.

  86. fem wynn

    this song is an implication of assumed intentions.

  87. Vercindreadorix

    This sums up my dating life pretty well.

  88. bogardeth

    I was there!

  89. 5Stringslinger

    This makes Bohamian Rapsody look like a shallow pop number.
    Great work!

  90. ViPERxMarS

    love diss bruh

  91. Dennis Farrell

    Um; "The Red Rocks performance featured the 71-piece Colorado Symphony"
    You should never

    Write words using numbers

    Unless you're seven, or your name is Prince

  92. Solidus 316

    How the hell did i not hear about this??
    They ALWAYS make a big deal about who is at Red Rocks.

  93. Zman Jace

    I dont think its possible for someone to get this big with comedy music ever again. They are all YouTube channels with niche audiences. Its disappointing but amazing that they do have outlets for their music at the very least.

  94. Darren Taylor

    Saw Weird Al in concert. One of the best live shows I've ever seen.

  95. Christy Moses

    I can’t be the only one that thinks our man is handsome as all get out.


    I first time I saw this video I swooned!!
    He's aging well but, man.....check this out.

  96. SirenHound

    I wish I could read microexpressions with such exacting precision.

  97. 9288Savior

    At 5:12 *Weird Al Hannibalankovic* *{::>_<::}*

  98. gendertoads !

    they really did those girls sooooo dirty giving them the live feed mic audio

  99. Nigel Proctor

    I feel like if I showed this to my black friends they wouldn't really get it
