Sweet Jane – The Velvet Underground

July 19, 2008

Standing on the corner
Suitcase in my hand
Jack is in his corset, and Jane is her vest
And me I’m in a Rock n’ Roll band
Riding in a Stutz Bearcat, Jim
You know, those were different times
All the poets they studied rules of verse
And those ladies, they rolled their eyes

Sweet Jane

Ill tell you something
Jack, he is a banker
And Jane, she is a clerk
Both of them save their moneys
For when they come home from work
Sitting down by the fire
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

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
They’re gonna tell you that everything is just dirt
You know that women never really faint
And that villains always blink their eyes
And that children are the only ones who blush
And that life is just to die

Anyone who ever had a heart
They wouldn’t turn around and break it
And anyone who ever played a part
Wouldn’t turn around and hate it

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
Sweet Jane
Sweet Jane
Sweet Jane
