Lyrics
Jim doesn’t ever bring me pretty flowers
Jim never tries to cheer my lonely hours
I don’t know why I’m so crazy for Jim

Jim never tells me I’m his heart’s desire
I never seem to set his love afire
Gone are the years that I’ve wasted on him

Sometimes when I get feeling low
And I say “let’s call it quits”
Then I hang on and let him go
Breaking my heart in bits

Someday, someday I know Jim will up and leave me
But if he does you can believe me
I’ll go on carrying the torch for Jim

Català – Jim
Jim no sempre em porta flors boniques
Jim mai prova d’animar les meves hores de solitud
No sé per què estic tan boja per Jim

Jim mai em diu que sóc el desig del seu cor
Mai semblo posar el seu amor en flames
Enrere han quedat els anys que he desaprofitat en ell

De vegades, quan em sento deprimida
I dic “deixem-ho tot”
Llavors continuo endavant i el deixo anar
Trencant el meu cor en bocins

Algun dia, algun dia sé que en Jim em deixarà
Però si ho fa, pots creure
Que continuaré estant enamorada de Jim
