Have you ever heard a song come on the radio, one that you’ve heard dozens of times before, that you bob along to, maybe sing along with, even hold a special fondness for, then one day you really listen to the lyrics and realize, “WTF?”
Jessie is a friend
Yeah I know he’s been a good friend of mine
This isn’t anywhere good.
Jessie’s got himself a girl and I wanna make her mine
No, no you don’t
And I’m looking at myself in the mirror all the time
Wondering what she don’t see in me
Probably that you’re her boyfriend’s friend. Duh.
It has nothing to do with who you are, or how you look.
Not with that hair.
I’ve been funny, I’ve been cool with the lines
Ain’t that the way love’s supposed to be
No, Rick, not when you’re mackin’ on your friend’s girl. A really good friend, which you’ve already admitted. Why don’t you step off and look somewhere else?
And love is more than humor and pickup lines. No wonder you can’t find a woman like Jessie’s girl.
