She's got stickers on her locker
And the boy's number's there in magic marker
I'm hungry and the hunger will linger
I eat sixteen saltine crackers then I lick my fingers

Well, every morning I deliver the news
Black hat, white shoes, and I'm red all over
She's got a big mailbox that she puts up front
Garbage in,
Garbage out,
She's getting what she wants

Who's jealous?
Who's jealous?
Who's jealous?
Who's jealous of who?
If I get busy then I couldn't care less what you do
But when I'm by myself I think of nothing else
Than if a boy just might be getting through and touching you

Spiked heels make a hole in a lifeboat
Jumping away when I'm talking and laughing as we float
I hear a whistle, that's how I know she's home
Lipstick, eyelash, broke mirror, broken home

Force fed, force mixed till I drop dead
You can’t defeat her, when you meet her you’ll get what I said
And Lord knows there's a method to her madness
But the Lord jokes as I float in a sea of sadness

She doesn't know but when she's gone I'll sit and drink up a few
And I'm sure she's drinkin too, but wondering what for and who
And I'm solo rowin'. I'm one side of the boat.
Looking out, throwing up, a lifesaver down my throat

Who's jealous who's jealous who's jealous who's jealous of who?
Who's jealous who's jealous who's jealous who's jealous of who?
Who's jealous who's jealous who's jealous who's jealous of who?
