Janey's Blues

Janis Ian

Janey's down, can't get off the ground
Too low to fall, she can't come up at all
Hey, Janey's just an accident
Fatal mistake on the day after Lent
and her parents always say
"We don't need you today,
"and we expect just the same"

She's got a blues-y feeling in her eye
and it's making her sigh
Cry... cry for Janey

Well, her mother plays on the golf course every day
and her daddy, he sits at home and plays with the maid
They've found the perfect alibi
Stay together for the sake of the child
You know, divorce don't fit
and they're too young to split
Think they're martyrs, but they're killing the kid

She's got a blues-y feeling in her eye
and it's making her sigh
Cry... cry for Janey

Now they put her down,
and they knock it if she hits the ground
Next moment, grab a purse
and take her out on the town
It's either a hit or a miss in the fight
A slap by day, and a kiss at night
You know, their hating sets them free
Loving only wants to see Janey taking sides

She's got a blues-y feeling in her eye
and it's making her sigh
Cry... cry for Janey
Cry for Janey
Cry for Janey
