    My mother used to sing it to me and she would be 108 if she were alive, so I imagine it's too old for you to have heard it. :)

    My maternal grandmom would be 122 if she hadn't died in 1981! That song wasn't in her musical collection I guess. Most of the songs/hymns I know were written before my birth.

    Would you care to sing ... make that hum, a few bars?

    Well Rippon, it is looking like I will be returning to work on Tuesday. Sense that will mean 10+ hours out on the route, my post count will surely be in decline. I will likely level out at about an easy 4.0 however. :smilewinkgrin:

    What? No singing??? :(

    It is not a hymn, it's country, and I imagine it was popular in the 20's or 30's. My mother was born in 1900.

    I don't know the rest of the lyrics, but it's a song that blames jealousy for the break-up of a relationship.

    I believe that's the only song I ever remember her singing besides hymns.

    She used to sing those two lines to me when the neighbor kids got a new toy and we couldn't afford one. LOL

    I am trying to get down to 10 posts a day :). At one time I was well over 20 posts a day, but realised for me I was spending way too much time here. I think I am around 11 posts a day ATM.

    Its like weight - a lot easier to put on than take off :) .

    Hmm,11.18. We have to get you into the realm of single digits. Peel off the posts one at a time.

    See, I thought about that :). As an admin I could go back and delete posts, or even whole threads where I have posted. But that would be cheating :)

    Hey, you made me post again - I'll never get them down at that rate :).

    "Are those words from a song?"


    Just for you Rippon :laugh: :laugh: BTW in my opinion Connie Francis sang it best :wavey:
    Jealous heart oh jealous heart stop beating
    Can't you see the damage you have done
    You have driven him away forever
    Jealous heart now I'm the lonely one.

    I was part of everything he planned for
    And I know he loved me at the start
    Now he hates the sight of all I stand for
    All because of you, oh, jealous heart.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Jealous heart why did I let you rule me
    When I knew the end would bring me pain
    Now he's gone he's gone and found another
    Oh, I'll never see my love again.

    Through the years his memory will haunt me
    Even though we're many miles apart
    It's so hard to know he'll never want me
    'Cause he heard your beating jealous heart..

    Impressive. In five years you have indeed gone down to the single digits. You shaved 4.03 daily posts off your old scorecard.

    Don't reply. You want to keep that weight off!

    I don't understand why this is such a popular thread. I would think that we would have better things to talk about in this forum than how many posts we have made on average each day. Is it a competition and I missed the memo?

    Digging in the archives I see. I do that on occasion. My last post on this thread was made 25 months ago.

    All threads here are not in the serious vein. Allow some humor in at times.
