  • Richel from Santa Ana, Caamazing song...i love each and every line of those lyrics - now THIS is music~
  • James from Torrance, United StatesI think it is funny because 'Jenny' is my school music teacher =P
    She really is but she denies ever going out with him but she only went on road with him as the pianoist in the band for a while...if she reads this she will kill me though =P
    Doubt she would read it.
