Plain Jane by Stu Leventhal
She’s just a plain Jane
Born to the over privileged.
She’s not supposed to give in
to emotions like lust.
She sits and watches, from high above,
Don’t believe in Amore’
Although love’s okay,
For the rest of us.
When you’re born with a golden spoon in hand.
Everyone expects so very much.
From the average girl
Oh… and the average man.
When you’re a member of the upper crust.
You ain’t nobody’s girl next door.
You’d better bring home, a debutant, Babe
Or you won’t be lounging, round the club no more.
There’s no such thing, as love at first sight.
Opposites don’t attract, oh no, they repel.
Why would a nice girl want to cross the tracks with me.
Does she have dreams, she’ll never tell.
But this Jane, ain’t so plain.
Don’t care to play the game
If it’s all the same.
This Plain Jane
She’s out to save the world.
That’s her sole intention.
She’s gonna save us, from the devil himself.
She’s gonna save us ohh…from ourself.
She’ gonna save us with all her knowledge,
her fine culture and all her wealth.
If you think you got what it takes, Girl.
Drink those notions right out of your mind.
Don’t try to save us, save yourself.
Save yourself girl, while there’s still time.
Lay your money down,
Before they raise the stakes.
Save yourself, Baby. Save yourself.
Pray for us Babe
But make no mistakes.
Save yourself, save yourself!
ROMANCE by Stu Leventhal
I can’t see you right now.
No, don’t call me!
I never thought I’d hear you say those words.
We went from hot to heavy,
Straight to good bye.
Without an explanation why.
Love is a subject they aught to teach us more about.
Starting with courses in grade school. Then when we find ourselves in it.
Maybe we won’t act like such a fool.
Did I do something wrong?
Or… did we just move too fast?
What are the do’s and don’t’s?
The I will’s and I won’t’s?
To make a relationship last.
Were we doomed from the start? Destined to break each other’s heart? Why couldn’t we see?
This terrible fate.
We both seem so smart.
Are you sure it’s the end?
Cause if there's even a doubt?
We could make our last stand...
Till the candle burns out!
Oh…Love is a subject they aught to teach us more about.
Much more about.
Love is a subject they aught to teach us more about!
