Why can't I BE a woman like that

I am absolutely convinced that Jessie's Girl was written by a gay man, and it's I wish I could BE Jessie's Girl. "and he's holdin' her in his arms late late at night" enough said. Of course, I also think the same thing about Saved the Best for Last (Vanessa Williams) and Ironic (Alanis Morissette, the line about meeting the man of my dreams and then meeting his beautiful wife).

Just some Sunday afternoon thoughts from the crisis center (come on 8p!).


Rick Springfield
Jessie's Girl

Jessie is a friend, yeah, I know he's been a good friend of mine
But lately something's changed that ain't hard to define
Jessie's got himself a girl and I want to make her mine
And she's watching him with those eyes
And she's lovin' him with that body, I just know it
Yeah 'n' he's holding her in his arms late, late at night
Chorus:You know, I wish that I had Jessie's girl, I wish that I had Jessie's girl
Where can I find a woman like that
I play along with the charade, there doesn't seem to be a reason to change
You know, I feel so dirty when they start talking cute
I wanna tell her that I love her, but the point is probably moot
'Cos she's watching him with those eyes
And she's lovin' him with that body, I just know it
And he's holding her in his arms late, late at night
chorus
Like Jessie's girl, I wish that I had Jessie's girl
Where can I find a woman, where can I find a woman like that
And I'm lookin' in the mirror all the time, wondering what she don't see in me
I've been funny, I've been cool with the lines
Ain't that the way love supposed to be
Tell me, where can I find a woman like that
(Solo)
You know, I wish that I had Jessie's girl, I wish that I had Jessie's girl
I want Jessie's girl, where can I find a woman like that, like Jessie's girl,
I wish that I had Jessie's girl, I want, I want Jessie's girl

Seriously, I SO see the Jessie's Girl thing. I mean, the title alone speaks volumes. If he was so preoccupied with the girl herself, wouldn't it be "[Jessie's Girl's Name]"? And everything seems to be about the guy. So, yes. Excellent observation. Good times. :-)
