Sweet Jane is standing on the corner, with a suitcase in her hand - Jack is in his corset, jane is in her vest, and me I'm in a rock'n'roll band, hah!
Ridin in a stutz bear cat, jim - You know, those were different times!
Oh, all the poets they studied rules of verse, And those ladies, they rolled their eyes - Sweet jane! whoa! sweet jane, oh-oh-a! sweet jane!
Ill tell you something - Jack, he is a banker - And jane, she is a clerk; Both of them save their monies, ha! And when, when they come home from work - Oh, sittin down by the fire, oh!
The radio does play, the classical music there, jim - the march of the wooden soldiers, all you protest kids - you can hear jack say, get ready, ah!
Sweet jane! come on baby! sweet jane! oh-oh-a! sweet jane!
Some people, they like to go out dancing And other peoples, they have to work, just watch me now! And there's even some evil mothers Well they're gonna tell you that everything is just dirt Y'know that, women, never really faint And that villains always blink their eyes, woo! And that, y'know, children are the only ones who blush! And that, life is just to die! And, everyone who ever had a heart They wouldn't turn around and break it And anyone who ever played a part Oh wouldn't turn around and hate it!
Sweet jane! whoa-oh-oh! sweet jane! sweet jane!
Heavenly wine and roses Seems to whisper to her when he smiles Heavenly wine and roses Seems to whisper to her when she smiles La lala lala la, la lala lala la Sweet jane Sweet jane Sweet jane
