Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I kinda wanna throw my phone across the room
'Cause all I see are girls too good to be true
With paper-white teeth and perfect bodies
Wish I didn't care

I know their beauty's not my lack
But it feels like that weight is on my back
And I can't let it go

Com-comparison is killin' me slowly
I think I think too much 'bout kids who don't know me
I'm so sick of myself, I'd rather be, rather be
Anyone, anyone else, but jealousy, jealousy
Started followin' me
Started followin' me

And I see everyone gettin' all the things I want
I'm happy for them, but then again, I'm not
Just cool vintage clothes and vacation photos
I can't stand it, oh God, I sound crazy

Their win is not my loss
I know it's true, but I can't help getting caught
Up in it all

Co-com-comparison is killin' me slowly
I think I think too much 'bout kids who don't know me
I'm so sick of myself, rather be, rather be
Anyone, anyone else, but jealousy, jealousy

Yeah
All your friends are so cool, you go out every night
In your daddy's nice car, yeah, you're livin' the life
Got a pretty face, pretty boyfriend, too
I wanna be you so bad and I don't even know you
All I see is what I should be
Happier, prettier, jealousy, jealousy
All I see is what I should be
I'm losin' it, all I get's jealousy, jealousy

Com-comparison is killin' me slowly
I think I think too much 'bout kids who don't know me
And I'm so sick of myself, rather be, rather be (oh, oh)
Anyone, anyone else (anyone else), jealousy, jealousy
Oh, I'm so sick of myself, I'd rather be, rather be (oh)



Anyone, anyone else, jealousy, jealousy
Started followin' me

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Olivia Rodrigo's "jealousy jealousy" express the struggles of comparison and jealousy that everyone goes through at some point in their lives. The song starts with the desire to throw the phone across the room as all one can see are girls who are too good to be true, with their paper-white teeth and perfect bodies. Even though the singer knows that their beauty is not her lack, she still feels the weight of comparison on her shoulders, making it hard for her to let go. The comparison is killing her slowly, and she thinks too much about people who don't even know her, which makes her sick of herself. She would rather be anyone else but herself, out of the feeling of jealousy and comparison.


The pre-chorus of the song highlights the happiness the singer has for others, but then again, she feels bad about not having those things. She can't stand the cool vintage clothes and vacation photos of everyone else, and she feels crazy for even thinking that way. Even though she knows that their win isn't her loss, it's hard for her not to get caught up in it all.


In the chorus, the singer emphasizes the fact that comparison is killing her slowly, and she would rather be anyone else but herself. She imagines living the life of everyone else she sees and feels bad about not being as happy or pretty as they are. The singer even wishes to be someone she doesn't even know or has never met, which shows the extent of her jealousy and envy.


Overall, "jealousy jealousy" is a poignant reflection of the struggles that people face as they compare their lives to others. The song reminds us that comparison is a dangerous game that we all play, and it's important to remember our own worth and be grateful for what we have.

I understand that just because some people are 'prettier' than me according to societal standards, it doesn't mean I am lacking in any way.

Although I'm trying to be a supportive friend, it's hard not to feel jealous and envious of others sometimes, even if I am happy for them.


Just cool vintage clothes and vacation photos
The things other people post online - like travel photos, stylish clothes, and other aspirational things - just make me feel bad about what I don't have.


I can't stand it, oh God, I sound crazy
These negative feelings make me feel like I'm going a little bit insane, or at least like I'm being irrational.

I wanna be you so bad and I don't even know you
Without even knowing some of these people, I still can't help but feel jealous of their seemingly perfect lives and situations.

I'm losin' it, all I get's jealousy, jealousy
These feelings of jealousy and insecurity have been building up over time, and I feel like they are starting to consume me entirely.


Oh, I'm so sick of myself, I'd rather be, rather be (oh)
I can't stand feeling negative and insecure all the time - I would rather just be someone else entirely, if it meant escaping these feelings.


Anyone, anyone else, jealousy, jealousy
These feelings of jealousy and insecurity are overwhelming and are making me feel like I want to escape my own life entirely.

Anyone, anyone else
My jealousy, jealousy (yeah)
All your friends are so cool, you go out every night
In your daddy's nice car, yeah, you're living the life
Got a pretty face, a pretty boyfriend too
I wanna be you so bad, and I don't even know you
All I see is what I should be
Happier, prettier, jealousy, jealousy
All I see is what I should be
I'm losing it, all I get's, jealousy, jealousy
Co-comparison is killing me slowly
I think, I think too much
'Bout kids who don't know me
And I'm so sick of myself
I'd rather be, rather be (oh, oh)
Anyone, anyone else (anybody else)
Jealousy, jealousy
Oh, I'm so sick of myself
