Stop – don’t say you’ll put me down
Love – don’t go away
Drop my feet back on the ground
Open your arms, let me stay

Hold me like you know you should
Don’t leave me on the shelf
Like a doll you throw away
So sad and lonely all by myself

I’m just your Jack-in-the-Box
You know whenever love knocks
I’m gonna bounce up and down on my spring

A toy used up when it stops
I’m just your Jack-in-the-Box
Because for your love I’d do anything

Who just keeps my heart around?
Loves to pull the strings?
You – and when it’s upside down
Look at the way that it swings

I can’t help the way I feel
It’s you and no one else
Comes the tune, but all too soon
I’m just a doll put back on the shelf

I’m just your Jack-in-the-Box
You know whenever love knocks
I’m gonna bounce up and down on my spring

A toy used up when it stops
I’m just your Jack-in-the-Box
Because for your love I’d do anything

Lalalala lalala… lalalala lalala…
Lalala lalalala lalala…
Lalalala lalala… lalalala lalala…
Lalala lalalala lalala…

Hey, hear what I say
You’ll find someday that I walked away from you
So say I’ve got to stay
And from today it’s love that’s gonna break through

I’m just your Jack-in-the-Box
You know whenever love knocks
I’m gonna bounce up and down on my spring

A toy used up when it stops
I’m just your Jack-in-the-Box
Because for your love I’d do anything

Hey hey
