Verse:
Oh! sweet -heart, sweet -heart, I've tried my best.
To let you do just as you please.
But my heart, poor heart, won't stand the test,
I find it full of lit -tle jeal -ous -ies.
I've tried and tried to hide it all from you,
But real -ly, dear, it's more than I can do.
 
Chorus:
Jeal -ous of the moon that shines a -bove,
Be -cause it smiles up -on the one I love,
I'm jeal -ous of the bird -ies in the trees,
They're al -ways sing -ing sweet -est mel -o -dies.
I'm jeal -ous of the pret -ty flow -ers too,
I miss the kiss they al -ways get from you.
I'm jeal -ous of the "tick -tock" on the shelf,
I'm ev -en get -ting jeal -ous of my -self.
