Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner,
But, he knew it couldn’t last.
Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona,
For some California grass.

Get back, get back,
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back, get back,
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back Jojo.
Go home

Get back, get back,
Back to where you once belonged.
Get back, get back,
Back to where you once belonged.
Get back Jo.

Sweet Loretta Martin thought she was a woman,
But, she was another man.
All the girls around her said she’s got it coming,
But she gets it while she can.

Get back, get back,
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back, get back,
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back Loretta.
Go home

Get back, get back,
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back, get back,
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back Loretta.
