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 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
