Jester & June Lyrics – Craig Finn


Well the bartender’s friend sold us something
I think was probably coriander
Fourth quarter
Hail Mary
Wide receiver
Hail Caesar

The guy we’ve been waiting for
Came up from the catacombs
Walked into the bathroom
Put it under the trashcan

And I went in after
Do you even remember?
They used to call us Junebug and Jester
They used to call us Jester and June

We used to have our own tune
We used to sing it in church
And then it got worse

We put to much faith
Gave too much cash
To that one creepy kid at the car wash
He said he could make a few calls
But I don’t think he made any calls

Well we probably should have tried the guy with the Dracula cape
Because other than the cape he was cool
He had that wild kind of sadness
Like he was something important
I wonder if he even remembers
They used to call us Junebug and Jester
They used to call us Jester and June

We were laughing at jokes
Laughing at jokes
Smiling at the smoke
They used to call us Junebug and Jester

We would drink and fall in love
Drink and fall in love
Fall around the clubs
They used to call us Jester and June

We used to know all the tunes
We used to have our own church
But then it got worse

Now honestly, officer
That’s a really good question
I’m just kinda distracted
By those jangling handcuffs

And the flashlights in our eyes
Too much faith in desperate guys
Too much fun in the eight straight summers
Do you remember Junebug and Jester?
And now we’re called Justin and Jane

We tried to push through the pain
We tried to work through the hurt
We tried to build our own church

Now the cops got our names
As Justin and Jane
The only people waiting at the car wash in the rain
The clubs have all changed
The buildings fell away
We were hoping that this corner
might remember Junebug and Jester..
