Paint them a picture Jane
And you can hang it on the wall
Tell them it's me they see
Don't tell them why I'm small

If they ask you why I'm crying
Just tell them someone is dying
And that he was just a friend
Don't let em see that you pretend
Paint them a picture Jane
Put it in a frame
One with lots of colors
Sign it with your name
Sign your name
Sign your name

Paint them a picture Jane
Like the one you painted for me
Tell them that I'm in love
But don't tell them they will see
If they ask you why I'm crying
Just tell them someone is dying
And that he was just a friend
Don't let em see that you pretend
Paint them a picture Jane
Put it in a frame
One with lots of colors
Sign it with your name
Sign your name
Sign your name
