"Sweet Janine" as written by and Jeffrey Gaines....
Well you're waltzing on a cloud of nine
While there's people dying to be free
And you're smiling from your private place
With your angel face so lovely
We don't want a rainy parade
I wouldn't want to bring you down
But what of your innocence brigade
Are you really that pure
Or do you fight to ignore what's around
Sweet Janine what have you seen
And are you for real
Sweet Janine where have you been
And what do you feel?
You're bathing in the sweet sunshine
While there's people crying in the frost
And the only concern on your mind
Is to have a good time whatever the cost
Don't want to throw you a curve
I wouldn't want your bubble to break
But what have you done to truly deserve
The keys to my town
What ain't nailed down you'll take
Sweet Janine what have you seen
And are you for real
Sweet Janine what have you seen, and
What do you think about the homeless millions
What do you think about dying civilians
What do you think about the freedom fighters
What do you think about letter bomb writers
Well you're skating on a figure of eight
While there's pain and there's hate at your feet
And your Daddy's made clear
That there's nothing to fear
At least here on your street
I don't want to darken your door
I wouldn't want you shedding a tear dear
But you've got everything and still you want more
You could learn a little sharing
And just a tad of caring I fear
Sweet Janine what have you seen
And are you for real
Sweet Janine where have you been
And what do you feel?
