Lyrics [from OldieLyrics]
Takes a rocking chair to rock
Takes a rubber ball to roll
Takes the man I love
To satisfy my soul
Because I'm jealous
Jealous hearted me
I said I'm jealous
Jealous as I can be

Got a stove in the kitchen
And it bakes nice and brown
But I need a papa
To turn the damper down
Because I'm jealous
Jealous hearted me
I said I'm jealous
Jealous as I can be

You can have my money
You can have my home
But for goodness sakes, women
Let my man alone
Because I'm jealous
Jealous hearted me
I said I'm jealous
Jealous as I can be

Gonna buy me a bulldog
To watch while I sleep
To watch that man of mine
On his midnight creep
Because I'm jealous
Jealous hearted me
I said I'm jealous
Jealous as I can be
Carter Family (in D#?)
Long Branch Ramblers (in A)
