Saint Etienne – Amateur lyrics

Back, further back

Janine, just nineteen
Joined a pyramid scheme
Didn't think it mean
To inflate her estate, left it too late

Broke her dreams
Broke her friends
Who said
Courtesy is dead

And now a piece of Vambra
Is looking like Turana
She's banking on the fee
She'll get from itv

Rethink, refrain
Don't pull a Jill, Jane
Amateur, amateur
Amateur

Kyle, frozen smile, got himself a mobile
Got a house, one wrinkle, couldn't get a signal
Pretty fast, put a mast
On the neighboring flats

A little girl called Jill
Will become very ill
But that is years away
So who gives a hey

Rethink, refrain
Don't pull a Jill, Jane
Amateur, amateur
Amateur

Five star review, who bought a new lp
Had to agree with the critic
Really dug my lyric
Tolerate all the people you hate

When they walk all over you
Ah, baby, what you gonna do
Get a Corinthian view
Wear the pink and blue
Ooh

Rethink, refrain
Don't pull a Jill, Jane
Amateur
Amateur

Rethink, refrain
Don't pull a Jill, Jane
Amateur
Amateur

Rethink, refrain
Don't pull a Jill, Jane
Amateur
Amateur

Rethink, refrain
Don't pull a Jill, Jane
Amateur, amateur
Amateur
