Sweet Jane

The Velvet Underground

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

Sweet Jane
Oh, Sweet Jane
Oh, Sweet, Sweet Jane

Waitin’ down on the corner 
There’s Jimmy and his amp 
He said, “Let’s go up to Billy’s house
He’s got a couple of strange friends there” 

So, I went up to the fourth floor 
and much to my surprise, 
nobody looked at my body 
They were all looking at my eyes 

Sweet Jane
Oh, Sweet Jane
Oh, Sweet, Sweet Jane

Well, Saturday down at the river 
Everybody said that it was going to overflow 
And me, I had no money for a taxi 
So, I figured I’d better find some place to go 

So, I met the strangest lady 
She said she made me a movie star 
She was all dressed in orange 
and had a great maroon car 

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

Sweet Jane
Oh, Sweet Jane
Oh, Sweet, Sweet Jane

Heavenly wine and roses, 
seem to look upon me to me when you smile 
Heavenly wine and roses, 
seem to look upon me to me when you smile 

La la la la, la la la la, 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
Oh, Sweet Jane
Oh, Sweet, Sweet Jane
