JESSIE'S GIRL (live)
(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 
Tell me 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 
Tell me 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

I've been 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
....
Jessie's Girl
Where can I find a woman like that 
Like Jessie's Girl

I wish that I had Jessie's Girl 
Jessie's Girl....
