Jessesgirl
Album: Glee: The Music, The Complete Season One, Glee: The Music, Best of Season One, and Glee: The 3D Concert Movie Motion Picture Soundtrack
Released: May 11, 2010
By: Rick Springfield
Sung by: Finn Hudson
Place: Doctor's Office, The Choir Room, and WMHS Hallway
Episode: Laryngitis

Jessie's Girl by Rick Springfield is featured in Laryngitis, the eighteenth episode of Season One. It is sung by Finn.

After taking Rachel to the doctor to see why she can't sing, Finn becomes frustrated when he finds out that she still cares about Jesse, and sings this song to her to try to prove he cares about her more than Jesse does, and wants her to be his girlfriend. Parts are sung as Finn watches Rachel's shadow undress behind a curtain at the doctor's office and parts are sung in front of the Glee Club in the choir room. During this song, Rachel feels very uncomfortable, but still smiles. Mr. Schue liked it very much and even said, "We should all be inspired by Finn's bravery."

Lyrics

Finn:
Jessie is a friend
Yeah, I know he's been a good friend of mine
But lately something's changed that ain't hard to define
Jessie's got himself a girl and I want to make her mine

And she's watching him with those eyes
And she's loving him with that body I just know it
And he's holding her in his arms late at night

You know, I wish that I had Jessie's girl
Wish that I had Jessie's girl
Where can I find a woman like that

I play along with the charade
There doesn't seem to be a reason to change
You know, I feel so dirty when they start talking cute
I wanna tell her that I love her
But the point is probably moot

Cause she's watching him with those eyes,
And she's loving him with that body I just know it,
And he's holding her in his arms late at night

You know, I wish that I had Jessie's girl
I wish that I had Jessie's girl
Where can I find a woman like that
Like Jessie's girl
I wish that I had Jessie's girl
Where can I find a woman
Where can I find a woman like that

And I'm looking in the mirror all the time
Wondering what she don't see in me
I've been funny, I've been cool with the lines
Ain't that the way love supposed to be
Tell me, where can I find a woman like that!

[Guitar Solo]

You know, I wish that I had Jessie's girl
I wish that I had Jessie's girl
I want Jessie's girl
Where can I find a woman like that
Like Jessie's girl,
I wish that I had Jessie's girl,
I want I want Jessie's girl
