"Jolene" as written by and Dolly Parton....
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you, please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him just because you can

Your beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green
Your smile is like a breath of spring
Your voice is soft like summer rain
And I cannot compete with you, Jolene

He talks about you in his sleep
And there's nothing I can do to keep
From crying when he calls your name, Jolene
But I can easily understand
How you could easily take my man
But you don't know what he means to me, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you, please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him just because you can

You could have your choice of men
But I could never love again
He's the only one for me, Jolene
I had to have this talk with you
My happiness depends on you
And whatever you decide to do, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you, please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him just because you can

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you, please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him even though you can Jolene, Jolene

    General CommentThis song is pathetic. If her boyfriend is so easily swayed, dump his ass. Love the song, but it seems to me that Dolly and Mindy need to grow a freakin' spine and learn to aim for FAITHFUL guys.

    General CommentThis is way better than the original or any other version. Mindy's voice REALLY sounds good in it. But i don't understand why she actually wants to stay with the guy. i would be saying you can have the man i don't want him anymore... i don't get how she could still love him...

    General Commentshes so desperately in 'love' i guess.... i mean i know that after a break up many girls think about how much they want the man back, even if theyre so hurt by him. this is the song for those times. its so sad :[
