Shakin' like the Devil when she lets me go
Got a new place and how it's so much better.
Falling over myself, the televisions on,
I turn it off and smile.
Oh, Jennifer, you know I always tried.
Before you say goodbye

Leave the bourbon on the shelf.
And I'll drink it by myself.
And I love you endlessly,
Darling don't you see I'm not satisfied
Until I hold you tight.
Give me one more chance tonight
And I swear I'll make it right.
But you ain't got time for this
And that wreckin' bell is ringin'
And I'm not satisfied
Until I hold you

Jennifer, tell me where I stand
And who's that other boy holdin' your hand?
Oh, Jennifer, you know I've always tried.
Before you say goodbye

Leave the bourbon on the shelf.
And I'll drink it by myself.
And I never liked your hair or those people that you lie with
And I'm not satisfied
Until I hold you tight
And I love you endlessly,
Darling don't you see I can't be satisfied
Until I hold you tight.

Leave the bourbon on the shelf.
And I'll drink it by myself.
And I love you endlessly,
Darling don't you see
I'm not satisfied.
