Beyoncé – JOLENE Lyrics

Beyoncé JOLENE Lyrics

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I’m warning you, don’t come for my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Don’t take the chance because you think you can

You’re beautiful beyond compare
Takes more than beauty and seductive stares
To come between a family and a happy man
Jolene, I’m a woman too
The games you play are nothing new
So you don’t want no heat with me, Jolene

We’ve been deep in love for twenty years
I raised that man, I raised his kids
I know my man better than he knows himself
I can easily understand why you’re attracted to my man
But you don’t want this smoke
So shoot your shot with someone else (You heard me)

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I’m warning you, woman, find you your own man
Jolene, I know I’m a queen, Jolene
I’m still a Creole Banjee bitch from Louisianne (Don’t try me)

There’s a thousand girls in every room
That act as desperate as you do
You a bird, go on and sing your tune, Jolene
I had to have this talk with you
‘Cause I hate to have to act a fool
Your peace depends on how you move, Jolene

Me and my man crossed those valleys
Highs and lows and everything between
Good deeds roll in like tumbling weeds
I sleep good, happy
‘Cause you can’t dig up our planted seeds
I know my man’s gon’ stand by me
Breathing in my gentle breeze

I crossed those valleys, highs and lows and everything between
Good deeds roll in like tumbling weeds
Good and happy
Can’t dig up them planted seeds
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I’ma stand by her, she gon’ stand by me, Jolene

I’ma stand by him, he gon’ stand by me
I’ma stand by her, she gon’ stand by me
I’ma stand by him, he gon’ stand by me, Jolene
