Lookin' fly, Jay. Lookin' fly.
There once was a fellow named Jay
Who amassed a fortune his way.
He became a bootlegger,
Now he’s rich (not a beggar)
An he stares at a green light all day.
In East Egg’s a woman named Daisy
Who drives old Jay Gatsby crazy!
She loves his beautiful shirts
So much that it hurts
But she’s “old money” and lazy.
The nrrator’s a fellow named Nick
He’s nice, but a little bit thick.
He dates Jordan Baker,
(She’s really a faker;
Cheating at golf’s quite a trick.)
