Jennifer’s Jacket – Song details by Chris Ballew:

“Dave and I struggled with this on in the studio for hours and finally decided to record the guitar and vocal live and add from there…again the solution was to keep it simple…the ending was recorded a month earlier by me and Jason in the shack….so we had to do the whole beginning part and weld it to the ending….whew….there is a real Jennifer and she really did have a jacket like this…falling apart…a folk song…that was way back in 1987 in Brooklyn ny where I lived after college…no money to buy things like new jackets…feels like a good farewell song for the record with that big 6 string chord ringing out….sort of a drinking song at the end…it was fun to do one song completely in the shack from recording to mixing…I tinkered with the guitars and vocal at the end for days to get them to do what I wanted but it was worth it….”

Presidents of the USA – Jennifer’s Jacket – Lyrics

And she’s got safety pins and string holding it together
She can only wear her jacket in warm weather
Although the sleeves need to be shortened
The fact that the arms are falling off isn’t important

(Because) Jennifer’s jacket, Jennifer’s jacket, Jennifer’s jacket,
Is falling apart
Jennifer’s jacket, Jennifer’s jacket, Jennifer’s jacket,
Is falling apart

The lining in her coat is rotten
And it seems that the zipper has been completely forgotten
She had a dollar ten for a slice in the pocket of the right
But the pocket had a hole and she looked for the change all night

Jennifer’s jacket, Jennifer’s jacket, Jennifer’s jacket,
Is falling apart
Jennifer’s jacket, Jennifer’s jacket, Jennifer’s jacket,
Is falling apart

This is a list of malformations
But it would cost one hundred dollars for alterations
We all know that the pressed leather is in
But you can’t keep warm in the winter in December in the city when it’s 32 degrees below zero
with a safety pin!

Jennifer’s jacket, Jennifer’s jacket, Jennifer’s jacket,
Is falling apart
Jennifer’s jacket, Jennifer’s jacket, Jennifer’s jacket,
Is falling apart
Jennifer’s jacket, Jennifer’s jacket, Jennifer’s jacket,
Is falling apart
Jennifer’s jacket, Jennifer’s jacket, Jennifer’s jacket,
Falling apart at the seams!
Falling apart at the seams!
Falling apart at the seams!
Falling apart at the seams! (Jennifer’s jacket is)
Falling apart at the seams! (Jennifer’s jacket is)
Falling apart at the seams! (Jennifer’s jacket is)
Falling apart at the seams! (Jennifer’s jacket is)
Falling apart at the seams, yeah!
