Well she came round here and nobody could speak her name
And she talked in circles like she needed someone else to blame
And everybody prayed she would go back from where she came
The sun didn't shine and for forty days all it did was rain
Well the lights burned out and the circus they got out of town
And the priest's last rites were the only words that could be found
The lover boys couldn't tell the time 'cause the phones were down
The poets couldn't find the words to describe the sound

Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro
Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro
Came, she saw, she made them cry
Lost their hearts but don't know why

Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro
Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro
Spoke the words and dared to die
Sold a dream for you and I

Well the good girls danced with the devil in the open yard
(Jeannie, Jeannie, oh Jeannie, Jeannie)
But the blood from their thighs was the only thing that made him hard
(Jeannie, Jeannie, oh Jeannie, Jeannie)
She couldn't read the signs on the wall where they had her scarred
She was the one time lover of a victim of the avant-garde
Well it was said she was raised by the praise of a furious man
(Jeannie, Jeannie, oh Jeannie, Jeannie)
But she couldn't tell you how or when that it all began
(Jeannie, Jeannie, oh Jeannie, Jeannie)
A woman has to feel alive any way she can
She don't plead dumb or pretend that she don't understand

Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro
Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro
Came, she saw, she made them cry
Lost their hearts but don't know why

Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro
Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro
Spoke the words and dared to die
Sold a dream for you and I

Well she came round here and nobody could speak her name
And she talked in circles like she needed someone else to blame
And everybody prayed she would go back from where she came
The sun didn't shine and for forty days all it did was rain

Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro
Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro
Came, she saw, she made them cry
Lost their hearts but don't know why

Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro
Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro
Spoke the words and dared to die
Sold a dream for you and I

    General CommentI think instead of "The loverboys couldn't tell the time", it's

    "The lover boys couldn't tell the town"

    and instead of "victim of the oven car"!, it is

    "victim of the avant-garde"
