He looked at her, in her awful dress; he —

Told her, the way her hair fell was pretty.

He never noticed me, my jealousy. 

All he saw was her; their love made him witty. 

—–

He was joyful around her, said forget —

Lies people tell, talking behind their back. 

Envious I spread more discord, I was set —

To move in; that Beth, she was such a brat.

—-

He liked me first, but then he saw sweet Beth, 

Told her: “If she’s the last thing he should see–

He wouldn’t be sad, forget or regret; 

[I bawled] she was all he would ever need.” 

—–

Her eyes were the the blue of the Tenerife Sea, 

Envy upset me; he loved Beth —not me.

    Wow, you show the destroying power of jealousy to perfection in this one. She can’t get past it to see there’s more to life than him!

      Yeah forsure. I decide to change it up since most songs are centred on love or the inside troubles of that love. What about from the outside.? Thank you Melinda 🙂

        I love it. It’s a great idea and you’re right. If you don’t mix it up, then you could easily get tired of the prompts because they are all about all love.

    Envy is certainly a poison. One that kills you as you are at it

      Haha yes it is a terrible one. The November Note (song quotes) have for the most part been love songs. I was eager to switch it up and take a slightly different view point on Ed Sheeran’s love song. Thank you Joan.
