"Jane" as written by and Craig/kantner Chaquico....
Jane, you say it's all over
For you and me girl
There's a time for love
And a time for lettin' it be baby

Jane, you're playin' a game called
Called "hard to get" by its real name
Makin' believe that you just don't feel the same
Oh Jane

Jane, you're playin' a game
You never can win girl
You're stayin' away so I ask you
"Where you been, baby?"

Like a cat and a mouse (cat and a mouse)
From door to door and-a house to house
Don't you pretend you don't know
What I'm talking about

Were all those nights we spent together, hey hey
Only because you didn't know better
I got to know
Jane, you're playin' a game
You're playin' a game, playin' a game

(Jane, Jane, Jane)
Woah Jane you're playin' a game
But why I don't see
Jane you're playin' for fun
But I play for keeps, yes I do
(Jane, Jane, Jane)
That's a game on me, yeah
(Jane, Jane, Jane)
So plain to see
(Jane, Jane, Jane)
Janie, Janie, Janie, Janie, Janie
(Jane, Jane, Jane)
Why you foolin' with me, me, me
(Jane, Jane, Jane)
(Jane, Jane, Jane)
(Jane, Jane, Jane)
(Jane, Jane, Jane)

    General CommentUnderrated. Hands down, one of the greatest underrated eighties tunes. Back before Kantner pulled the legal shotgun and launched a bullet to the Starship gang giving Mickey and the boys a shot, shaking off the "Jefferson" part of the title. Awesome song.

    General CommentI like this song its really nice. its pretty hard to miss what this song is about so im not going to even say anything. They should have stayed Jefferson Airplane. Although "Jane" is a wonderful song. as well.

    General CommentListen to this, then listen to Aldo Nova's "Fantasy." Or, listen to Fantasy first, then listen to this. I think you will notice some similarities in the songs - just something I noticed today.
