I was in love with this boy

and his name was Jeffrey Lee

he was more than just a ploy

so I would have somebody

He played guitar in a band

and wrote his songs about me

(that wasn't like my own man)

hey hey that's my Jeffrey Lee

Don't stab me in the back anymore

and dont you shove me through the door

I'm not going to be there for you

when it's twenty-seven past two

My man called me at night

"come on, baby, I need you"

I would go without a fight

and he'd tell me what to do

All I am is nobody

a girl for his every need

and I just want somebody

hey hey that's my Jeffrey Lee

Don't stab me in the back anymore

and dont you shove me through the door

I'm not going to be there for you

when it's twenty-seven past two

My man threw me down one time

and I stayed against the floor

to keep the life that is mine

wishing for everything more

So I left, humming that song

and dreaming of what I'll be

when I have that boy I love

hey hey that's my Jeffrey Lee

Don't stab me in the back anymore

and dont you shove me through the door

I'm not going to be there for you

when I can have my Jeffrey Lee

hey hey that's my Jeffrey Lee

hey hey that's my that's my

that's my Jeffrey Lee
