Billy Fury - about 1959-60.

It was all over my jealousy,
My crime was my blind jealousy,
My heart was afire with desire for you...

Sorry, I can't remember any more - I was just a kid at the time, but my head is full of these snippets of lyrics, from my childhood to the present. :) Unusually for a pop song, it was in Tango tempo. May have been an older "standard." It certainly had that feel about it.

It's on You-Tube, "Billy Fury - Jealousy" in the search bar, and there you have it. Shouldn't be too hard to pick up the words - he sings quite clearly.

Billy Fury - Jealousy

JEALOUSY

Jealousy, twas only through jealousy
Our hearts were broken
And angry words spoken
Now all I have is memory to cherish so tenderly
With every token you have given to me
I loved too well for I doubted you in my heart
My life was hell every moment we were apart
Why did I make that big mistake
I wronged you right from the start

Twas all over my jealousy
My crime was my blind jealousy
My heart was a fire with desire for you
But I never thought that your love was true
You gave all your kisses to me
But now all too late I can see
The heartaches I cost you
No wonder I lost you
Twas all over my jealousy.

This is a thought-provoking song. Many people underestimate the damage caused by mindless jealously.

some years ago, one of the great advice columnists (either Dear Abby or Ann Landers) did a survey, and thousands of American women contributed their views on marriage. The consensus was that it is totally hopeless to marry one of the following kinds of men because they will never change:

a mama's boy
a problem drinker
a jealous man.

I vividly remember a man who wrote to one of them saying that he was jealous man even though he didn't want to be, and it was ruining his life. The columnist had no advice or consolation for him.

Here's an example of mindless jealousy, so you know what I'm talking about. I read in a magazine of an abusive husband who flew into a rage if his wife did not answer the phone in three rings. If it took longer, he assumed she was with a man. Didn't matter if she was changing the baby or weeding the garden, his mind instantly embraced jealousy.

Like the singer in this song, he lost her.

This used to be a very popular violin solo as well in a time earlier than now.

Jealousy, night and day you torture me
I sometimes wonder, if this spell that I'm under
Can only be a melody, for I know no one but me
Has won your heart, but when the music starts

My peace departs from the moment
they play that lovely strain
And we surrender to all its charm again
This jealousy that tortures me, is ecstasy, mystery, pain

We dance to a tango of love
Your heart beats with mine as we sway
You eyes give the answer I'm dreaming of
That soft word your cruel lips will never say

I fear that the music will end
And shatter the spell it may lend
To make me believe, when your eyes just deceive
But it's only the tango you love.

I fear that the music will end
And shatter the spell it may lend
To make me believe, when your eyes just deceive
And it's only the tango you love.

It's only the tango that you love.

JEALOUSY
(Jacob Gade / Winifred May)
recorded by Geraldo & His Orchestra

VERSE
Jealousy!
'Twas only through Jealousy!
Our hearts were broken, and angry words were spoken,
Now all I have is memory, to cherish so tenderly,
With ev'ry token, you have given to me.
I love too well, for I doubted you in my heart,
My life was hell, ev'ry moment we were apart.
Why did I make, that big mistake?
I wrong'd you, right from the start.

REFRAIN
'Twas all over my jealousy
My crime was my blind jealousy
My heart was afire with desire for you
But I never thought that your love was true
You gave all your kisses to me
But now all too late I can see
The heartaches I cost you
No wonder I lost you
'Twas all over my jealousy

VERSE
Happiness, I've squandered my happiness,
For all my gladness, has ended in a sadness,
I've only got myself to blame, I know I deserve the shame,
Love was a madness, from the moment you came.
Your magic kiss was intoxicating like wine,
Drunk with such bliss, was I wrong in calling you mine?
Though you were true, I doubted you,
Forgive me sweetheart for this.
(To Refrain)

JEALOUSY

recorded by Vera Lynn

Also recorded by:
Billy Fury; Leslie Hutchinson; Richard Tauber.

Jealousy, 'twas only through jealousy
Our hearts were broken, and angry words were spoken,
Now all I have is memory to cherish so tenderly
With every token you have given to me

I loved too well for I doubted you in my heart
My life was hell every moment we were apart
Why did I make that big mistake
I wronged you right from the start

'Twas all over my jealousy
My crime was my blind jealousy
My heart was on fire with desire for you
But I never thought that our love was true

You gave all your kisses to me
But now, all too late, I can see
The heartaches I cost you, no wonder I lost you
`Twas all over my jealousy.

I got the lyrics from International Lyrics Playground and then I corrected the lyrics by listening to the Frankie Laine and Billy Fury recordings.

Frankie Laine uses more-or-less the same tune as the Billy Fury recording, but has quite different lyrics. Who Wrote That Song? (Jacobs & Jacobs) says the song was published in 1938 and originally introduced in Denmark. I'm guessing that the Billy Fury and Frankie Laine recordings are different translations of the same Danish song. I found the song in a number of different languages, including a Spanish version recorded by Connie Francis.
