oh, jealous love, oh jealousy, keep the match from catching the gasoline.
oh, jealous love, oh jealousy, let me hear not one word i don’t need.
i held you once, maybe i will hold you again, but if another man lays his hands on you i’m laying hands on him because your beauty is rare and baby its hard to find and when you are born with a losing hand you don’t give up on two of a kind.
oh, jealous love, oh jealousy, ain’t going to smoke your bitter weed.
oh, jealous love, oh jealousy, little Moses wont you help me part the goddamn sea.
well, some know my craft, yeah some know my trade but at the end of a hard earned day you’re the only one who knows my name.
all nights are hard because all days are long and when i lay my head to rest it best i’ve got another song to sing.
oh jealous love, oh jealousy, ain’t going to reap your dirty seed.
oh, jealous love, oh jealousy, every man needs a road forward that he can see.
i loved you once, so i’ll love you twice, because baby you’re the only thing that keeps me warm on a cold night.
and that ring you will wear, baby they’ll have dug it from the dirt, but the promise i will make i will take to my grave even if it hurts.
oh, jealous love, oh jealousy, let me not mistake the forest for the trees.
oh, jealous love, oh jealousy, what i have is what i have to believe.
