Verse 1
------- 
|D      A    Bm     |G  A  D
 Jessie is a friend,
        |D        A      Bm   |G     A  D
Yeah I know, he's been a good friend of mine
    |D     A           Bm                |G      A D
But lately something's changed, it ain't hard to define
         |D      A      Bm         |G     A        D
Jessie's got himself a girl, and I wanna make her mine
Pre-Chorus
          |D            A         Bm     |G  A  D
And she's watching him with those eyes,
          |D           A        Bm     |G   A      D
And she's loving him with that body, I just know it,
         |D            A      Bm  |G    A      D
And he's holding her in his arms, late late at night

  Where can I find her, a woman like that?
Verse 2
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 want to tell her that I love her but the point is probably moot.
