"Lady Jane" as written by and Michael Holbrook Penniman....
Lady Jane the river saint
Special yes but lucky ain't
Lady Jane said she walked on water but she never had a man to show
Then one day she found a fella she was eager just to let him know
Lady Jane she walked on water
Followed by her brand new lover who tumbled along, drownin' down below

Lady Jane did not abort
For legends are never made that short
Now be sure when you listen to this
Here's another reason why you shouldn't eat fish
Convinced he'd become a creature of the sea
She cut off her feet and jumped into the deep
And never stopped looking for her lover below

Lady Jane the river fish
Became the world's most wanted dish
And though no man would dare to catch
Something whose beauty we could never match
But when some member from a far away state
Said "I order you to get that fish's head on my plate!"
They killed little Lady Jane

The emperor of a distant land
The only man who didn't understand
That though you think you've got your prize
There's another fish that has escaped your eyes
Lady Jane, her lover's there
Swimming through the ocean with a desperate stare
Looking for Lady Jane
Looking for Lady Jane

    My OpinionI don't think it's "she never had a man to show." I think it's "she never had a MIND to show." It's about a legend, and I just love this song. You can really hear the passion in some of MIKA's songs! This is what makes him my favorite singer.
