Barenaked Ladies – Jane lyrics
The girl works at the store, sweet Jane St. Clair
Was dazzled by her smile while I shopped there
It wasn't long before I lived with her
I sang her songs while she dyed my hair

Jane... Divided, but I can't decide which side I'm on
Jane... Decided only cowards stay, while traitors run
Jane... Jane

I'd bring her gold and frankincense and myrrh
She thought that I was making fun of her
She made me feel I was fourteen again
That's why she thinks it's cooler if we'd just stay friends

Jane... Doesn't think a man could ever be faithful
Jane... Isn't giving me a chance to be shameful
Jane... Jane

I wrote a letter, she should have got it yesterday
That life could be better by being together
Is what I cannot explain to Jane

The girl works at the store, sweet Jane St. Clair
Still dazzled by her smile while I shoplift there
No promises as vague as heaven
No Juliana next to my Evan

Jane... Desired by the people at her school and work
Jane... Is tired 'cause every man becomes a lovesick jerk
Jane... Jane
