  • Oh mother, say a prayer for me
    Jesse's back in town, it won't be easy
    Don't let him near me
    Don't let him touch me
    Don't let him please me

    (chorus)
    Jesse, I won't cut fresh flowers for you
    Jesse, I won't make the wine cold for you
    Jesse, I won't change the sheets for you
    I won't put on cologne
    I won't sit by the phone for you

    Annie, keep reminding me
    That he cut out my heart like a paper doll
    Sally, tell me once again
    How he set me up just to see me fall

    Chorus

    Jesse, quick come here
    I won't tell a soul
    Not even myself
    Jesse, that you've come back to me
    My friends will all say "She's gone again'
    But how can anyone know what you are to me
    That I'm in heave again because you've come back to me - Oh Jessie!

    Jesse, I'll always cut fresh flowers for you
    Jesse, I'll always make the wine cold for you
    Jesse, I can easily change my mind about you
    And put on cologne
    And sit by the phone for you

    Jesse, let's open the wine
    And drink to the heart
    Which has a will of it's own
    My friends, let's comfort them
    They're feeling bad
    They think I've sunk so low

    Jesse, I'll always cut fresh flowers for you
    Jesse, I'll always make the wine cold for you
    Jesse, I will change the sheets for you
    Put on cologne
    And I will wait by the phone for you - Oh Jesse
