Lyrics
All this time I couldn’t shake your memory
And I never knew the sweetest love was the first
So what am I supposed to do about this curse
Oh, baby, I’ve got you to blame
And I’m calling, calling out your name

Oh, he was so fine, Jimmy Lee
Oh, he was so fine, Jimmy, Jimmy Lee
(Jimmy Lee)  Jimmy, Jimmy Lee
(Jimmy Lee)

Find me rushing off to school every morning
Never had a care
Acting crazy, always laughing when I’m running
Cause I knew you’d meet me when I got there

Stealing kisses in the hall before the first bell
You smelled so fine
Though we’d just met I guess you knew me so well
You had the number to my heartline

(Maybe he knew his stuff)  Well, just between you and me
(Maybe you weren’t enough)  He was the first one
(Maybe he’d seen enough)  He stole my heart
And he ran like a bandit, I don’t understand it

Jimmy Lee, this one’s for me, and I’ll always remember
History, biology, and that magical December, ooh, boy
Jimmy Lee, where can you be, if this song ever finds you
Won’t you please explain to me why you left me behind you, yeah

(Jimmy Lee)  Jimmy

On the average twice a week I think I see you
On some avenue
Someone laughs or shakes his head they way you used to
I guess I, I got myself a loose screw

I grew up and had my share of adventure
Well, I’ve had some fun
But you never need to question my intentions
Cause each guy is just another rerun

(Maybe he knew his stuff)  Well, just between you and me
(Maybe you weren’t enough)  He was the first one
(Maybe he’d seen enough)  He stole my heart
And he ran like a bandit, I don’t understand it

Jimmy Lee, this one’s for me, and I’ll always remember, hey, Lord
History, biology, and that magical December, ah, hah
Jimmy Lee, where can you be, if this song ever finds you
Won’t you please explain to me why you left me behind you, oh, yeah

(Jimmy Lee)  Jimmy, Jimmy, Jimmy Lee
(Jimmy Lee, Jimmy Lee)

(Maybe he knew his stuff)  Well, just between you and me
(Maybe you weren’t enough)  He was the first one
(Maybe he’d seen enough)  He stole my heart
And he ran like a bandit, I don’t understand it, yeah

Jimmy Lee, this one’s for me, and I’ll always, always remember
History, biology and that magical, oh, December
Jimmy Lee, where can you be, if this song ever finds you, yeah, yeah, yeah
Won’t you please explain to me why you left me, oh, behind you
Jimmy Lee, this one’s for me, ooh, hey Jimmy, hey Jimmy

Català – Jimmy Lee
Durant tot aquest temps no podia treure’m de sobre el teu record
I mai vaig saber que l’amor més dolç seria el primer
Llavors, què se suposa que he de fer amb aquesta maledicció?
Oh, noi, et tinc a tu per culpar-te’n
I estic cridant, cridant el teu nom

Oh, estava tan bé, Jimmy Lee
Oh, estava tan bé, Jimmy, Jimmy Lee
(Jimmy Lee)  Jimmy, Jimmy Lee
(Jimmy Lee)

Sortia corrent cap a l’escola cada matí
Sense vigilar gens
Actuant com una boja, sempre rient mentre corria
Perquè sabia que em veuries quan arribés allà

Robant petons a l’entrada abans de la primera campana
Feies tan bona olor
Tot i que ens acabàvem de conèixer, suposo que em coneixies prou bé
Tenies el número del meu cor

(Potser ell coneixia el seu encant)  Bé, que quedi entre tu i jo
(Potser tu no eres suficient)  Va ser el primer
(Potser ja en tenia prou)  Em va robar el cor
I va córrer com un bandit, no ho entenc

Jimmy Lee, aquest és per a mi, i sempre recordaré
La història, la biologia, i aquell màgic desembre, oh, noi
Jimmy Lee, on deus ser? si aquesta cançó t’arriba algún dia
M’explicaràs, si us plau, per què em vas deixar penjada? sí

(Jimmy Lee)  Jimmy

De mitjana, dues vegades a la setmana, crec que et veig
Per algun carrer
Algú riu o mou el cap tal com tu ho feies
Crec que, que em falta un bull

Vaig créixer i vaig tenir la meva quota d’aventures
Bé, m’ho he passat prou bé
Però no hauries de qüestionar les meves intencions
Perquè cada xicot és només una altra repetició

(Potser ell coneixia el seu encant)  Bé, que quedi entre tu i jo
(Potser tu no eres suficient)  Va ser el primer
(Potser ja en tenia prou)  Em va robar el cor
I va córrer com un bandit, no ho entenc

Jimmy Lee, aquest és per a mi, i sempre recordaré, hey, Senyor
La història, la biologia, i aquell màgic desembre, ah, hah
Jimmy Lee, on deus ser? si aquesta cançó t’arriba algún dia
M’explicaràs, si us plau, per què em vas deixar penjada? oh, sí

(Jimmy Lee)  Jimmy, Jimmy, Jimmy Lee
(Jimmy Lee, Jimmy Lee)

(Potser ell coneixia el seu encant)  Bé, que quedi entre tu i jo
(Potser tu no eres suficient)  Va ser el primer
(Potser ja en tenia prou)  Em va robar el cor
I va córrer com un bandit, no ho entenc, no

Jimmy Lee, aquest és per a mi, i sempre, sempre recordaré
La història, la biologia, i aquell màgic, oh, desembre
Jimmy Lee, on deus ser? si aquesta cançó t’arriba algún dia, sí, sí, sí
M’explicaràs, si us plau, per què em vas deixar, oh, penjada?
Jimmy Lee, aquest és per a mi, ooh, hey Jimmy, hey Jimmy
