    "Sweet Jane" Lyrics

    Mott the Hoople

    Standing on the corner
    Suitcase in my hand
    Jack is in his corset and Jane is in her vest
    And me I'm in a rock and roll band

    Riding in a Stutz Bearcat Jim
    Those were different times
    And the poets studied rules of verse
    And all the ladies rolled there eyes

    Sweet Jane
    Sweet Jane

    Sweet Jane

    Now Jack he is a banker
    And Jane she is a clerk
    And they're both saving up all their money
    And when they come home from work

    Sitting by the fire
    Radios a-play
    A little classical music for you kids
    To 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
    Other people they got to work

    And there's always some evil mothers
    I tell you life is just full of dirt

    And the women never really faint
    And the villains always blink their eyes
    And children are the only ones that blush
    And that life is just to die

    But anyone who had a heart
    He wouldn't want to turn around and break it
    And anyone who ever played a part
    He wouldn't want to turn around and hate it

    Sweet Jane
    Sweet Jane Sweet Jane
    Sweet Jane Sweet Jane
    Sweet Jane Sweet Jane
    Sweet Jane, oh my sweet Jane
