"Jolene," Revised

An alternate take on the beloved Dolly Parton song.

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don’t take him just because you haven’t considered all your options

Your beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green

Your smile is like a breath of spring
Your voice is soft like summer rain
Please don’t hang up Jolene

He talks about you in his sleep
But people have started noticing
I’m always working your name into conversation, Jolene

And I can easily understand
If you don’t feel comfortable because of Nick
But I ended it, I left him Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you please come over and we can just talk about this
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I feel crazy

You could have your choice of men
But men are dogs
And we could be everything to each other Jolene

I got your number off the classroom volunteer list, is how -
Yes, I may have had a glass of wine this afternoon
It’s called liquid courage, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I’m begging of you please if that’s Nick on the other line
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please just think about what I said
Jolene, Jolene
