I'm supposed to be working but find myself humming...

mood: obsessed
music: Oh Jean

So I downloaded Oh Jean from iTunes and found myself wanting the words. There are some awful lyric transcriptions on the web, so of course I did it myself.

Proclaimers version


I’d never been lucky with girls, I confess.
Don’t know who to blame for my lack of success.
Cause even wi' ones up the back of ya bus,
There was always the risk of a slap in the puss.

But Jean, oh Jean, you let me get lucky wi' you.
Oh Jean, oh Jean, you let me get lucky wi' you.

The first time I met you it did cross my mind.
The next time I saw you there wasn’t the time.
The third time I saw you I thought that I should.
The fourth time I met you I knew that I would.

Oh Jean, oh Jean, you let me get lucky wi' you.
Oh Jean, oh Jean, you let me get lucky wi' you.

I love her, I love her, I love her.
Love her, I love her, I love her.
Love her, I love her, I love her.
Love her, I love her, I love her.

I want you forever, I want you for good,
So I’m gonna treat you the way that I should.
For your soul and body my heart's gonna pound,
Even after the day that I’m laid in the ground.

'Cause Jean, oh Jean, you let me get lucky wi' you.
Oh Jean, oh Jean, you let me get lucky wi' you.

I love her, I love her, I love her.
Love her, I love her, I love her.
Love her, I love her, I love her.
Love her, I love her, I love her.
I love her I love her I love her I love her I love
I love her I love her I love her I love her I love
I love her I love her I love her I love her I love
I love her I love her I love her I love her I love
etc.


Billy at TORN version

Don’t know who to blame for my lack of success.
Even wi' ones up the back of ya bus,
There's always the chance of a slap in the puss.

Oh Jean, ah Jean, you let me get lucky wi' you.
Oh Jean, ah Jean, you let me get lucky wi' you.

The first time I saw you I thought that I should.
The next time I met you I knew that I would.
The third time I met you there wasn’t the time.
The fourth time I saw you I knew you'd be mine.

Oh Jean, ah Jean, you let me get lucky wi' you.
Oh Jean, ah Jean, you let me get lucky wi' you.

I love you, I love you, I love you.
I love you, I love you, I love you.
I love you, I love you, I love you.
I love you, I love you, I love you.

I love you, I love you, I love you.
I love you, I love you, I love you.
I love you, I love you, I love you.

I love you, I love you, I love you.
I love you, I love you, I love you.
I love you, I love you, I love you.
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you.

Oh Jean, ah Jean, you let me get lucky wi' you.

yay! *smooches*

so glad you found the lyrics...i've been listnening to the song on repeat, trying to figure out what he's saying. i still can't tell if he's saying "saw" at all...it sounds like all four lines are "met"...but the version i'm listening to is very fuzzy, so i can't be sure.

It could very easily be "met," he's clearly playing fast and loose with the lyrics.

I couldn't get to the PO, sorry :-(
