Jessie’s Girl

(words and music by Rick Springfield)
Jessie is a friend
Yea 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 wanna make her 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 had Jessie’s Girl
I wish that I had Jessie’s Girl
Where can I find a woman like that

I play along with the charade
There doesn’t seem to be a reason to change
You know I feel so dirty when they start talking cute
I wanna tell her that I love her 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 had Jessie’s Girl
I wish that I had Jessie’s Girl
Where can I find a woman like that?

Like Jessie’s Girl
I wish that I had Jessie’s Girl
Where can I find a woman
Where can I find a woman like that

And I’m lookin’ in the mirror all the time
Wondering what she 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 where can I find a woman like that

You know I wish that I had Jessie’s Girl
I wish that I had Jessie’s Girl
I want Jessie’s Girl
Where can I find a woman like that?
Like Jessie’s Girl

I wish that I had Jessie’s Girl
I want, I want Jessie’s Girl
