Chely Wright - If I Were Jackie Lyrics


If I had married JFK I would have lost my mind
'Cause everybody seemed to know how he spent his leisure time
Well I guess that things were different then
A wife just turned her head
But do you think she cried when the President didn't make it home to bed?
How did she survive that kind of life?

If I were Jackie, I'd got in one of those black Sudans
And left the Secret Service in the dust.
Oh, if I were Jackie, I'd of told Marilyn:
"You can keep that man 'cause he's gonna cheat on you like he cheated on us."

She kept on facing forward and she held her head up high
Even when she smelled a strange perfume, she stood there by his side
She'd smile and she would wave like she had grown accustomed to,
The picture of perfection like a debutante would do.
Did she ever ask him, "Where the hell have you been?"

If I were Jackie, I'd got in one of those black Sudans
And left the Secret Service in the dust.
If I were Jackie, I'd of told Marilyn:
"You can keep that man 'cause he's gonna cheat on you like he cheated on us."

(spoken:)
I guess it's easy to sit here today and say what I would do.
Yeah, but we'll probably never know if it was her weakness, or her strength, that covered up the truth.

If I were Jackie, I'd got in one of those black Sudans
And left the Secret Service in the dust
Oh, if I were Jackie, I'd of told Marilyn:
"You can keep that man 'cause he's gonna cheat on you like he cheated on us."

If I were Jackie, I'd got in one of those black Sudans,
And left the Secret Service in the dust.

(Clip of Marilyn Monroe singing, 'Happy Birthday, Mr President')
