Standing Infor Jody Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I don't need nobody
Shaking my tree
Save all your love
Save it just for me
Verse 2
You kiss me but the
Feeling just ain't there, no, no
You're saving the real thing for Jody
And you're using me just for a smile
I can see through that
Verse 3
You come running, running
Running, running, running to me
Each time Jody makes you cry
Lord, have mercy
Verse 4
You're nothing but a fool for Jody
Well, I'm a bigger fool to watch the
Tears as they fall from your eyes
All right, now
Verse 5
I'm gonna tell you something
I'm tired of standing in for Jody
(I got to keep you for myself)
Oh, tired of standing in for Jody
(I got to keep you for myself)
You see, a man can't be a man
Playing second fiddle to someone else
Verse 6
One day, one day soon, baby
You're gonna wake up and see
Jody's just using you, baby
The same doggone way
Verse 7
But let me tell you something
I'm so tired, I've had enough
'Cause you call his name
When we're making love
Verse 8
Each day, I love you
A little bit more
How do you think I feel
When Jody comes around
And I have to go
Verse 9
I don't want nobody
Shaking apples in my tree
Save all your love
Give it just for me
Oh, yeah, now
Verse 10
Stop using me
Using me, using me
Lord, have mercy
Verse 11
I'm tired of standing in for Jody
(I got to keep you for myself) oh
I'm so tired of standing in for Jody
(I got to keep you for myself)
A man can't be a man playing
Second fiddle to someone else
Verse 12
I bet somebody's waiting out there
Tonight, watching their watch
Trying to see what time it is
Jody was supposed to pick you up
Take you to the movie show
Verse 13
Then he called and
Told you it was too late
I got another date, honey
Can't see you no more
Verse 14
Don't you get tired
Of waiting on Jody
Standing in, standing in
And waiting
