Supertramp – Goodbye Stranger lyrics

It was an early morning yesterday, I was up before the dawn
And I really have enjoyed my stay but I must be moving on
Like a king without a castle, like a queen without a throne
I'm an early morning lover and I must be moving on
Now I believe in what you say is the undisputed truth
But I have to have things my own way to keep me in my youth
Like a ship without an anchor, like a slave without a chain
Just the thought of those sweet ladies sends a shiver through my veins
And I will go on shining, shining like brand new
I'll never look behind me, my troubles will be few
Goodbye strange it's been nice, hope you find your paradise
Tried to see your point of view, hope your dreams will all come true
Goodbye Mary, goodbye Jane, will we ever meet again
Feel no sorrow, feel no shame, come tomorrow, feel no pain
Sweet devotion (Goodbye Mary), it's not for me (Goodbye Jane)
Just give me motion (Will we ever) and set me free (Meet again)
And land and the ocean (Feel no sorrow), far away (Feel no shame)
The life I've chosen (Come tomorrow), every day (Feel no pain)
So goodbye Mary (Goodbye Mary), goodbye Jane (Goodbye Jane)
Will we ever (Will we ever) meet again (Meet again)

Now some they do and some they don't and some you just can't tell
And some they will and some they won't, with some it's just as well
You can laugh at my behaviour that'll never bother me
Say the devil is my saviour but I don't pay no heed
And I will go on shining, shining like brand new
I'll never look behind me, my troubles will be few
Goodbye stranger it's been nice, hope you find your paradise
Tried to see your point of view, hope your dreams will all come true
Goodbye Mary, goodbye Jane, will we ever meet again
Feel no sorrow, feel no shame, come tomorrow, feel no pain
Sweet devotion (Goodbye Mary), it's not for me (Goodbye Jane)
Just give me motion (Will we ever) and set me free (Meet again)
And land and the ocean (Feel no sorrow), far away (Feel no shame)
The life I've chosen (Come tomorrow), every day (Feel no pain)
And now I'm leaving (Goodbye Mary), got to go (Goodbye Jane)
Hit the road (Will we ever), I say it once again (Meet again)
Yes I'm leaving (Feel no sorrow), got to go (Feel no shame)
Got to go (Come tomorrow), I'm sorry I must tell you (Feel no pain)
Goodbye Mary (Goodbye Mary), goodbye Jane (Goodbye Jane)
Will we ever motion (Will we ever) meet again (Meet again)

I believe, yes, I've got to get away

    The song is simply about a guy who visits a couple of hookers and is saying bye the next morning. I've read where people thing that mary and jane refer to pot. Now while the name maryjane is a euphemism for pot, that is not what is meant. Since the song is about hookers, mary and jane are the fake names they would choose since they are so plain and simple. And before anyone says that hookers are usually named crystal or felicity or ambrosia, try coming up with a rhyme for those names and let me know how you do.
