Thanks for everything
You hung me out by my heart
You're just so selfish, Jean
Yes you are

Hey, you
Threw it all away
By holding everything in
Hey, Jean, don't rock the boat
When you can't swim

With a perfect understanding
Of the finer things in life
A quite alarming knack of knowing
When to twist the knife
Selfish Jean

Here's to you
Who read everything
Left it out on the shelf
There's no one else to blame
Except yourself

Well a perfect combination
Of good etiquette and charm
You keep the chocolate biscuits
Wired to a car alarm
Selfish Jean

Well I'm standing on my own
And this house is not a home
It's so sad to see you go
Things are high, things are low
And it's good to know you know
If you've got nowhere to go
Well you could spend the night with me
There will be no guarantee that I'll be here

In the morning
Or any time that you call
I hear you snoring, Jean
Through the wall

So, hey
Here's to everything
To peace and love in our time
Ah, Jean, the slate is clean
I guess we're fine

Well I don't expect a miracle
Not asking you to change
If you can see me happy
Well just look the other way
Selfish Jean

Selfish Jean

Oh, yeah
