Sweet Jane
The Velvet Underground Lyrics


Standin' on a corner
Suitcase in my hand
Jack's in his car, says to Jane, who's in her vest
And me, I'm in a rock n' roll band
Ridin' in a Stutz Bearcat, Jim
You know, those were different times
And the poets studied rows of verse
And all the ladies, they rolled their eyes

Sweet Jane, oh, Sweet Jane, oh oh, Sweet Jane

Now, Jack, he is a banker
And Jane, she is a clerk
And the both of them are saving up their money
And when, when they come home from work
Ouh, sittin' down by the fire, oh
The radio just played a little classical music for you kids
The march of the wooden soldiers
All you protest kids
You can hear Jack say
Get ready

Sweet Jane, come on baby, Sweet Jane oh oh oh oh, Sweet Jane

Some people, they like to go out dancing
And other people, they have to work (just watch me now)
And there's even some evil mothers
Well, they gonna tell you that everything is just dirt
You know that, women never really faint
And that villain always blink their eyes, ooh
And that, you know, children are the only ones who blush
And that life is just to die
But, anyone who ever had a heart
Wouldn't want to turn around and break it
And anyone who ever played the part
Oh, they wouldn't want to turn around and fake it

Sweet Jane, oh whoa, Sweet Jane, Sweet Jane

Heavenly wine and roses
Seem to whisper to her when he smiles
Heavenly wine and roses
Seem to whisper to her, and then she smiles

La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
Sweet Jane
Sweet Jane
Sweet Jane
Sweet Jane
Sweet Jane
Sweet Jane
