You said you'd marry me if I was 23
But I'm one that you can't see if I'm only 18
Tell me who made these rules
Obviously not you
Who are you answering to?

Oh, Jenny don't be hasty
No, don't treat me like a baby
Let me take you where you'll let me
Because leaving just upsets me

And I'll be around again
To see these other men
Who are more adequate
In the age department
If I did not think you cared
There'd be no problems here
But now you're looking at me like you're disgusted
And I'm definitely waiting for you to smile and change your mind
Then I'll say I'm sorry and I'll wrap my arms 'round your body
And I really hope that you forgive in a hurry
And don't just ask me to leave

Oh, Jenny don't be hasty
Don't treat me like a baby
Let me take you where you'll let me
Because leaving just upsets me

Oh, Jenny you are crazy!
First I'm perfect, then I'm lazy
And I was calling you my baby
Now it sounds like you've just left me
And it kills me!

Yes 
I kinda like this guy.
Nah...
kind of a stripped down Kinks sound to me
This is the song that caught my ear so bought this album when it came out.  I'm bored with this song now. 
Now follow it up with "867-5309" by Tommy Tutone. ("Jenny, i got your number...")

C'mon, Bill, you know you want to.
It's the Kings of Leon....oh wait no it's not.  Dang I really thought this was KoL.  Gonna need to check out this Paolo guy.

Ditto!

I think he's begging Jenny not to hit PSD.

Nice phrase. Wish I'd thought of it.

Jenny seems to be a ho.
8675309
Jenny seems to get around.......
Jenny dont be hasty, you have some many men wanting your attention......
Who does this song remind me of? Catchy but a little weak,  but then I like it, Whomever.
Giggity-giggity. Groovy pop-esque! A fun 6.
Looks like Bill has been throwing this one into rotation about once a month. Just about perfect for this enjoyable but forgettable tune. 7 'cause it's fun.
A rather ordinary song that has been improved by the segue to Tommy Tutone. Hilarious! Coupla good bar-bands, though. I'd sit through another set if the beer was good enough.

Go listen to him ripping up Robbie Burn's 'A Man's a Man':

It's not too surprising he's from the Glasgow area, there being a very large Italian/Italo-Scot community up there dating, I believe, from WWII when a lot of POWs preferred to remain in Scotland to make a new life rather than go home to a devastated country. A pretty good noise, this song - 7 from the Nottingham jury.

Hey.  All you have to do is vote: you don't have to be rude, teen-boy.

And anyway: it's a 7.

I heard it for the first time on RP tonight and I have wondered why I haven't heard it sooner.  You guys need to give the album a second listen...and third and fourth it's actually awesome... Paolo rocks!

Me Likey... First time hearing these guys!

Wonderful Tune.  Is the rest of the album this good?{#Dancingbanana}
 

Like the previous poster, this album is fairly weak. Couple of good tunes, this being one of them, but the rest of the album is a dud. Guy at work ripped it for me. Glad he did and I didn't waste my money. He wasted his though as we are both disappointed with this album.

Guy's got a great, unique sound. He just needs to keep the groove going.

Got it after hearing him do "New Shoes" on Leno. That one and this one are good, but the rest sounded custom crafted for "American Idol."

For some reason I really like this song and this voice.
There is a live version out there that has a slightly more raw sound that I like a little more, but this is a great tune.
The lead singer sounds suspiciously like the lead singer for the band "Neutral Milk Hotel."
It's so nice to hear a unique, textural voice. Maybe a little sand-on-paper, but it's gooood.
Yeah! Reminds me of my last holidays when I heard that for the first time. {#Sunny}
Nice album, although the mixer/technician failed to record the piano-tracks in good quality, they all sound distorted if you hear it loud. {#Evil}
However: nice track, nice album, rock on {#Dancingbanana_2}
who is this Nutini? and why does the bass mix sound muddy on an otherwise good song?
Fun little rocker. I like this. Has a groove sorta like the Romantics. But less raucous. 7
Awful voice, awful song.  2.
I'm in love, but I'm lazy...

I've got a couple other songs by this guy—they're all pretty good. I lIke!
Hints of Transit Lounge by Crowded House, at least to my ears.

Got a good beat. You can dance to it.
