"Crimson And Clover" as written by Peter Lucia and Tommy James....
Ah, now I don't hardly know her
But I think I could love her
Crimson and clover

Ah when she comes walking over
Now I've been waitin' to show her
Crimson and clover over and over

Yeah, my, my such a sweet thing
I wanna do everything
What a beautiful feeling
Crimson and clover over and over

Crimson and clover over and over
Crimson and clover over and over
Crimson and clover over and over
Crimson and clover over and over

    General CommentI saw Joan Jett and The Blackhearts perform this live in Nashville at Warped Tour a couple of weeks ago. I didn't know she did a cover of this song until then. I was so happy!! She did a great job!

    General CommentI agree w/zzoeE I can't stop playing this. Didn't know it was a cover, but whatever, I love it ;)
    I'm pretty sure it's about a girl she (I guess 'he' if the original is by a guy) just met and is captivated by. Not sure about what the crimson and clover, but it makes me think of crimson red lipstick and clove cigarettes.

    General CommentI had thought it was about BDSM -- clover clamps, and crimson marks on his/her skin. But that was assuming it was original to Joan Jett, and knowing how many of her songs have kinky undertones -- if it's a cover, I guess that's less likely.

    General CommentI saw her in concert, like 11 days ago, and I either read this or she said it, I'm pretty sure she said this: She would sing songs from a Tommy Jones album just for fun and they really liked her singing Crimson and Clover so they ended up recording it, plus, I believe, a few others. But obviously Crimson and Clover fo sho.
