2. 'I love her / him but she / he doesn't notice me'😟

3. 'I'm going out with this girl / lad: she / he is amazing! '😍

4. 'I think she / he might be going off me..'🤔

5. 'She / he cheated on me!'😡

Praise the Lord types...

Non descript like scratchy...

Advert types Scott's on swingers...

Genre types...jazz freak for example...

All about the me me me party time man

Message types, the bottle...

Dance types, the duck. Boogie with your baby..

Political messages, clean up the ghetto.

Under the influence, whiskey talking..

This could go on and on..

How about the American term 'Jody' which refers to a soldier who sleeps with other soldier's wives or girlfriends while they are at war.  Here are a few below,  there must be allot more,  I guess from the Vietnam war, might have been a term used in Korea , but I dont know for sure. In fact the darker shades track quotes the Johnnie Taylor title, cool record.

Johnnie Taylor - Jody's got your girl and gone

Songs about Duracha - Jody Is Gone

looked it up, actually dates from WW2 as the text below says;

But where did Jody, scourge of the deployed soldier, come from?

The U.S. military’s use of term dates back to roughly 1939 when it was introduced to the U.S. Army by African-American soldiers during World War II. Originally, “Jody” was “Joe the Grinder,” and blues singers used to croon about him — a disreputable man who cuckolds prisoners and soldiers by stealing their wives and girlfriends. While he’s Joe simply because it’s a common name, the “Grinder” comes from the 19th century slang for sex. Jody literally grinds up on, and then, in your girl.

By the end of the war, the name had been shortened to Joe D., then Jody, which stuck. And everyone knew who Jody was. The idea of him even worked its way into cadences.

Ain’t no use in going home

Jody’s got your girl and gone
