Lyrics [from OldieLyrics]

Takes a rocking chair to rockTakes a rubber ball to rollTakes the man I loveTo satisfy my soulBecause I'm jealousJealous hearted meI said I'm jealousJealous as I can beGot a stove in the kitchenAnd it bakes nice and brownBut I need a papaTo turn the damper downBecause I'm jealousJealous hearted meI said I'm jealousJealous as I can beYou can have my moneyYou can have my homeBut for goodness sakes, womenLet my man aloneBecause I'm jealousJealous hearted meI said I'm jealousJealous as I can beGonna buy me a bulldogTo watch while I sleepTo watch that man of mineOn his midnight creepBecause I'm jealousJealous hearted meI said I'm jealousJealous as I can be
