This song is in the key of G.
Oh! sweetheart, sweetheart, 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 little jealousies.
I've tried and tried to hide it all from you,
But really, dear, it's more than I can do.
Jealous of the moon that shines above,
Because it smiles upon the one I love,
I'm jealous of the birdies in the trees,
They're always singing sweetest melodies.
I'm jealous of the pretty flowers too,
I miss the kiss they always get from you.
I'm jealous of the "tick-tock" on the shelf,
I'm even getting jealous of myself.
