"Jet" as written by Bennie Benjamin, Harry Revel and George David Weiss....
(Jet, Jet)
(Jet) I can almost remember their funny faces
That time you told them you were going to marrying soon
And Jet I thought the only lonely place was on the moon

(Jet, Jet)

Jet was your father as bold as the sergeant major
How come he told you that you were hardly old enough yet
And Jet I thought the major was a lady suffragette

(Jet, Jet)

Ah mater want Jet to always love me
Ah mater want Jet to always love me
Ah mater, much later

(Jet)

And Jet I thought the major was a lady suffragette
(Jet, Jet)

Ah mater want Jet to always love me
Ah mater want Jet to always love me
Ah mater, much later

Jet with the wind in your hair
Of a thousand laces
Climb on the back and we'll go for a ride in the sky
And Jet I thought that the major was a little lady suffragette

(Jet, Jet)
And Jet you know I thought you was a little lady suffragette
(Jet)
A little lady
My little lady, yes

    General CommentJet invited her boyfriend to some kind of family social. She told them that she would be marrying soon. They were shocked to hear this because they thought she was saying that she was pregnant. Her father spoke up as bold as a sergeant major and told her that she was too young. He didn't approve of this boy. He told her that she was never allowed to see him again. They were in love so the world was a lonelier place than the moon while they were apart. This boy would go to Mass and pray to Mother Mary that Jet would always love him and that one day they would get married. So they eloped. They rode off with her on the back of his motorcycle and with her white laced wedding vale blowing in the wind. This may sound very disrespectful because Linda is no longer with us, the reason why the girl in this story was named Jet is because Paul use to have a dog named jet. This may be a rebuff to a very nasty joke going around at the time. What do you call a dog with wings? Linda McCartney.

    General Commentreally? Nothing here about meaning of suffragettes and mater being mom? Even Bowie could have picked up on the suffragettes!
