Tired of your Jive

You're sittin' there lookin' proud, thinkin' you're so fine
Tryin' to run around with every friend of mine
Think you're so smart, baby, think that I'm a fool
Yeah, I'm gonna tell you, baby, you'd better play it cool
 
I'm tired of your jive
Yeah, baby, I'm tired of your jive
I refuse to be your fool, mama
Hell, yeah, I'm tired of your jive!
 
You think that I don't see what you do behind my back
You think I oughta love you, baby, no matter how you act
You'll never miss your water baby, 'til the world goes dry
I'm gonna tell you, gonna miss me by and by
I'm tired of your jive, yeah baby, I'm tired of your jive
I refuse to be your fool, mama
Hey! I'm tired of your jive
 
Sittin' there smilin', like nothing's wrong
I don't intend to pull your coat, baby
You'll know it when I'm gone
Yeah, you'll never miss your water, baby
'til the world runs dry
Now I'm gonna tell you, you gonna miss me, by and by
I'm tired of your jive
Baby, I'm tired of your jive
Yes, I'm here to tell you, woman
Baby, I'm tired of your jive
Yeah!
 
  • jive:

    The jive is a dance style that originated in the United States from African Americans in the early 1930s. The name of the dance comes from the name of a form of African-American vernacular slang, popularized in the 1930s by the publication of a dictionary by Cab Calloway, the famous jazz bandleader and singer. In competition ballroom dancing, the jive is often grouped with the Latin-inspired ballroom dances, though its roots are based on swing dancing and not Latin dancing.

  • water baby:

    The 'Water-Babies', A Fairy Tale for a Land Baby is a children's novel by Charles Kingsley. Written in 1862–63 as a serial for Macmillan's Magazine, it was first published in its entirety in 1863. It was written as part satire in support of Charles Darwin's On The Origin of Species. The book was extremely popular in England, and was a mainstay of British children's literature for many decades, but eventually fell out of favour in America in part due to its claimed prejudices against Irish, Jews, Catholics and Americans.
