1st track from "Objects Of Desire" (1982). Love the pop-jazz feel with the funky horns, plus all the clever rhymes like: I used to be mellow / Now I feel like Othello. Haha, how cool is that? And who can't relate?

I used to be mellow
Till you got a hold of me
Now I feel like Othello
I'm dying of jealousy

Where were you late last night?
I passed your house, I saw no light
I called you on the phone a hundred times
You weren't at home
Don't say, "Just out with friends"
I can't believe that line again
Don't tell me, "Just be cool"
You know I ain't that big a fool

Why must you play with me?
Why don't you stay with me?
I'm in a difficult position
I don't mean to push and shove
I just want all your love
I'm sick and tired of this suspicion

You gave me that sweet look
You cast a spell on me
I swallowed your meat hook
Now I'm dying of jealousy

I cry when I should laugh
At your old lover's photograph
You say, "No need to shout"
Well, how come you never threw it out?
What did you do all day?
Your mind's a million miles away
You say, "Just in my room"
Well, I would like to know with whom

Why must you play with me?
Why don't you stay with me?
I'm in a difficult position
I don't mean to push and shove
I just want all your love
I'm sick and tired of this suspicion

My heart is burning up with jealousy
This jealous feeling's got a hold of me
My heart is burning up with jealousy
This jealous feeling's got a hold of me
My heart is burning up with jealousy
This jealous feeling's got a hold of me
My heart is burning up with jealousy
