How My Brain Hears The Lyrics To Rick Springfield Jessie’s Girl.

Jessie is a friend,
Yeah, I know he’s been a good friend of mine
But lately something’s changed
It ain’t hard to define
Jessie’s got himself a girl and I wish he was mine

And she’s watching him with those eyes
And she’s lovin’ him with that body, I just know it!
And he’s holding her in his arms late, late at night

You know I wish that I was Jessie’s girl
I wish that I was Jessie’s girl
Why can’t I be a woman like that?

I play along with the charade
That doesn’t seem to be a reason to change
You know I feel so dirty when they start talking cute
I wanna tell him that I love him but the point is probably moot

‘Cause she’s watching him with those eyes
And she’s lovin’ him with that body, I just know it!
And he’s holding her in his arms late, late at night

You know I wish that I was Jessie’s girl
I wish that I was Jessie’s girl
Why can’t I be a woman like that?

Like Jessie’s girl
I wish that I was Jessie’s girl
Where can I find a woman…
Why can’t I be a woman like that?

And I’m lookin’ in the mirror all the time
Wonderin’ what he don’t see in me
I’ve been funny; I’ve been cool with the lines
Ain’t that the way love’s supposed to be?

Tell me, why can’t I be a woman like that?

You know I wish that I was Jessie’s girl
I wish that I was Jessie’s girl
I want to be Jessie’s girl
Why can I be a woman like that?

Like Jessie’s girl
I wish that I was Jessie’s girl
I want, I want to be Jessie’s girl
