... Suitcase in my hand

Jack is in his corset, and jane is her vest,

And me Im in a rocknroll 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 theres even some evil mothers

Well theyre gonna tell you that everything is just dirt

Yknow that, women, never really faint

And that villains always blink their eyes, woo!

And that, yknow, children are the only ones who blush!

And that, life is just to die!

And, everyone who ever had a heart

They wouldnt turn around and break it

And anyone who ever played a part

Oh wouldnt 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
