Singalong! Jane Says by Jane's Addiction

My first real job was in our local movie theatre. There was a girl on staff who was a grade ahead of me and who generally seemed like the coolest person in the world: she was sort of punk, sort of goth, sort of emo, and sort of just whatever her thing was. She was really into Jane's Addiction, and would talk about them all the time. This was right around the very early of the days of downloading music (remember Napster, anyone?), and Jane Says by Jane's Addiction was one of the first songs I downloaded. It was awesome! For whatever reason I have never listened to a single other song by Jane's Addiction, but I figure since the song is about Jane and Jane is in their band name, it's pretty much their flagship song.


JANE SAYS
by Jane's Addiction

Jane says
I'm done with Sergio
He treats me like a ragdoll
She hides
The television
Says I don't owe him nothing,
But if he comes back again
Tell him to wait right here for me
Or just
Try again tomorrow
I'm gonna kick tomorrow
Gonna kick tomorrow

Jane says
Have you seen my wig around?
I feel naked without it
She knows
They all want her to go
But that's O.K. man
She dont like them anyway
Jane says
She's goin away to spain
When she gets my money saved
I'm gonna start tomorrow
I'm gonna kick tomorrow
Gonna kick tomorrow

She gets mad
Starts to cry
She takes a swing but
She cant hit
She don't mean no harm
She just don't know
What else to do about it

Jane goes
To the store at 8:00
She walk up on St. Andrews
She waits
And gets her dinner there
She pulls her dinner
From her pocket
Jane says
I've never been in love
I don't know what it is
Only knows if someone wants her
I want them if they want me
I only know they want me

She gets mad
And she starts to cry
She takes a swing man
She can hit!
She don't mean no harm
She just don't know
What else to do about it

Jane says
