    "Sweet Jane" Lyrics

    G.B. Leighton

    Standin' on a corner,
    Suitcase in my hand.
    Jack's in his car, says to Jane, who's in her vest,
    Me, babe, I'm in a rock n' roll band.
    Ridin' in a Stutz Bearcat, Jim,
    Those were different times.
    And the poets studied rows of verse,
    And all the ladies rolled their eyes

    Sweet Jane, Sweet Jane, Sweet Jane

    Now, Jack, he is a banker,

    And Jane, she is a clerk.
    And the both of them are saving up their money...
    Then they come home from work.
    Sittin' by the fire...
    Radio just played a little classical music for you kids,
    The march of the wooden soldiers
    And you can hear Jack say

    Sweet Jane, Sweet Jane, Sweet Jane

    Some people like to go out dancing
    And other people, (like us) they gotta work
    And there's always some evil mothers
    They'll tell you life is full of dirt.
    And the women never really faint,
    And the villans always blink their eyes.
    And the children are the only ones who blush.
    'Cause life is just to die.
    But, anyone who has a heart
    Wouldn't want to turn around and break it
    And anyone who ever played the part
    He wouldn't want to turn around and fake it

    Sweet Jane
