lyrics

Joe, Joey, Joseph, Joel: You gotta stop fucking my girl.
Joe, Joey, Joseph, Joel: these pleas are so often now hurled.
I know that she loves it with you more than me, but I'm begging you boy to man, whimperingly:
Joe, Joey, Josepher, Joel: You gotta stop fucking my girl.

Joe, Joey, Joseph, Joel: It looks bad to beg in this light
but when you've been with a lass like my Cass, you'd be willing to put up a fight.
I mean, you understand: Cass is real great. She’s no one to underestimate,
so Joey McJosephine Joseph Levine, leave me my lady tonight!

Joe, Joey, Joseph, Joel: I wish you'd just leave us alone.
I pray that you may just close that door, next time she comes to you to bone.
Of course, I get it: she's a great piece of tail, but if I had my way, you'd be run out on a rail
So, Joey Sir Joerson Josephson Joe, tonight couldn’t you just go home…?

Joe-Joe Lord Joey Mac Joseph ben Joe, if you would just grant me this boon
of being the friend of all friends who would bend to not fucking my girl in her poon
or anywhere else that you can quite reach - I'd be quite appreciative, as matter of speech
could you, Joe, Josephson Josepher Joe, just send me over the moon!

Now, Joey of Joseph from Jo-town de Joe, do you see what I'm getting at?
You've been fucking my girl for a while now; Do you think we could squash that now, flat?
Find your own lover, Joe, you're so cool! You could meet some hot lady at any high school.
But leave my miss alone, you big cornpone, I don't wanna be a doormat!
Joe, acting like an alley cat.
Joey, don't be such a dirty rat.
Joseph, don't do me like that...
