Lyrics

The Cockroaches Version

Well, I can't wait any longer for what I want
I want a leather jacket, I want a leather jacket
Yeah, I'll look really cool with a leather jacket on
I want a leather jacket, I want a leather jacket
I'll really have style, just you wait and see
I want a leather jacket, I want a leather jacket
And all the girls will be looking at me
I want a leather jacket, I want a leather jacket
Had a pair packet for a real leather jacket
But I want a leather jacket, I want a leather jacket

Some people say that I'm out of my mind
I want a leather jacket, I want a leather jacket
To pay so much money for a black leather hide
I want a leather jacket, I want a leather jacket
But they go really well with my long black slacks
I want a leather jacket, I want a leather jacket
And you know you ain't a-rocking without you on the back
I want a leather jacket, I want a leather jacket
Had a pair packet for a real leather jacket
But I want a leather jacket, I want a leather jacket

I want a leather jacket, I want a leather jacket
I want a leather jacket, I want a leather jacket
I want a leather jacket, I want a leather jacket
I want a leather jacket, I want a leather jacket
Had a pair packet for a real leather jacket
But I want a leather jacket
