Roy Wood$' "Jealousy" is an inebriated burst of frustration: Girl I stay high, never sober, Wood$ sings. You could have stayed but it's over. He might have given this girl reason to leave, but he's still upset about it. During the accusatory hook, he just keeps repeating the same question: why you so jealous?
The Jim Joe-directed clip for the track arrived today. The footage is grainy and worn; initially, the camera is right next to the singer’s face, almost pushing him backwards, and Wood$ is half-shrouded in darkness. At the end, he's dancing alone in a parking lot, content to be alone. Watch above.
