jenny jenny jenny, don't be lazy
jenny jenny jenny, don't be lazy
i know it's hopeless
i know it's sad
i know you're stupid
i know it's sad
but jenny jenny jenny
jenny jenny jenny

don't be a jerk jonny
don't be so cruel to me
don't be a jerk jonny
don't be so cruel to me

it's out of love
it's out of love
it's out of love
it's out of love
it's out of love (no it's not)
it's out of love (no it's not)
it's out of love (no it's not)
it's out of love (no it's not)

everyday i ride my bike
up and down these roads
i'd see a beautiful flower
it was trampled on the ground
jenny, it makes me think of you
how you used to be and how you are now
oh jenny how you are now
oh jenny jenny jenny

don't be a jerk jonny
don't be so cruel to me
don't be a jerk jonny
don't be so cruel to me

oh it's out of love
it's out of love
it's out of love
it's out of love
it's out of love (no it's not)
it's out of love (no it's not)
it's out of love (no it's not)
it's out of love (no it's not)

you used to be so pretty
but now you're just tragic
believe in something
you're full of horseshit

you used to be so pretty
but now you're just tragic
believe in something
you're full of horseshit

you used to be so pretty
but now you're just tragic
believe in something
you're full of horseshit

you used to be so pretty
but now you're just tragic
believe in something
you're full of horseshit

oh jenny jenny jenny

and you said
don't be a jerk jonny
don't be so cruel to me
don't be a jerk jonny
don't be so cruel to me

it's out of love
it's out of love
it's out of love
it's out of love
it's out of love (no it's not)
it's out of love (no it's not)
it's out of love (no it's not)
it's out of love (no it's not)

no it's not
no it's not
no it's not
no it's not

    General Commenti first assumed this was about a struggling relationship with jonny as a jerk boyfriend, but upon listening to it 1000 times, i now see it as about a protective older brother, jonny, worried about his young teenage sister who has fallen into the wrong crowd

    My Interpretationwhen i saw these guys live, jonny pierce kept making a gesture to a pregnant stomach whilst singing. maybe the lyrics are indicating that a girl he is very much in love with has gotten pregnant with someone else? which could link with: 'it's out of love (no it's not)' as if to say that the baby wasn't for love, more lust?

    General Comment"This next song is about a girl I really hate" He said last night onstage about this one.
    I think if it was about a sister he wouldn't still hate her in his 20's so it's more like an ex girlfriend and who knows, the pregnancy is a possible thing this girl had.
    It's about dead love to me and the flower analogy could represent her sleeping around (Flower represents virignity) oh my it could even be about his first love.
