Verse 1
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
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
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.
Verse 5
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.
