Thomas Dolby – A Jealous Thing Called Love lyrics

Once full moon I like to wander
Where the seagulls go at night
Take the D-train right to Brooklyn
Far away from the city lights.
Down the boardwalk-along the river
Where the thin men fish with worms
Past the phone booth where you called me
And the motel where you took her...

I'd have given her anything
Anything she asked
My little heart was a-trembling,
I must have been on Mars
The sugar walls came a-tumbling down
What was I thinking of?
When I fell for a pretty thing
A jealous thing called love,
It was a jealous thing called love.

I still toast you on your birthday
Raise a glass to my favorite year
When you told me her eyes were roving
And you warned me I might lose her
I remember the conversation
And the dim sum that we shared
I will be here if you call me
Just don't call me if you're with her.

I'd have given her anything
Anything she asked
My little heart was a-trembling,
I must have been on Mars
The sugar walls came a-tumbling down
What was I thinking of?
When I fell for a pretty thing
A jealous thing called love,
It was a jealous thing called love.
