  • You said you'd marry me if I was twenty three
    But I'm one that you can't see if I'm only eighteen
    Tell me who makes these rules
    Obviously not you
    Who are you answering to?

    Oh, Jenny don't be hasty
    No, don't treat me like a baby
    Let me take you where you'll let me
    Because leaving just upsets me

    And I'll be around again to see these other men
    That are more adequate in the age department
    And I did not think you cared
    There'd be no problems here
    But now you're looking at me like you're disgusted
    Then I'm definitely waiting for you to smile and change your mind
    Then I'll say I'm sorry and I'll wrap my arms 'round your body
    I really hope that you forgive in a hurry
    And don't just ask me to leave

    Oh, Jenny don't be hasty
    No, don't treat me like a baby
    Let me take you where you'll let me
    Because leaving just upsets me

    Oh, Jenny you are crazy
    First I'm perfect, then I'm lazy
    And I was calling you my baby
    And all the times that you just left me
    And it kills me so

    Oh, Jenny don't be hasty
    No, don't treat me like a baby
    Let me take you where you'll let me
    Because leaving just upsets me

    Oh, Jenny you are crazy
    First I'm perfect, then I'm lazy
    And I was calling you my baby
    And all the times that you just left me
    And it kills me, yeah, oh yeah

    You said you'd marry me if I was twenty three
    But I'm one that you can't see if I'm only eighteen Writer/s: PAOLO GIOVANNI NUTINI, JIMMY HOGARTH

  • 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.
    i know this because if you search jenny proctor something about paolo nutini will come up
