Janie Jones

Lyrics

by The Clash

he’s in love with a rock’n roll woaahh
he’s in love with a gettin’ stoned woaahh
he’s in love with a janie jones woaahh
he don’t like his boring job, no

he’s in love with a rock ‘n roll woaahh
he’s in love with a gettin’ stoned woaahh
he’s in love with a janie jones woaahh
he don’t like his boring job, no

an’ he know what he got to do
so he knows
he’s gonna have fun with you
you lucky lady!
an’ he knows when the evening comes
when his job is done he’ll be over in his car for you

he’s in love with a rock ‘n roll woaahh
we’re in love with a gettin’ stoned woaahh
he’s in love with a janie jones woaahh
he don’t like his boring job, no

an’ in the in-tray lots of work
but the boss at the firm always thinks he shirks
but he’s just like everyone, he’s got a ford cortina
that just won’t run without fuel
fill her up, jacko!

he’s in love with a rock ‘n roll woaahh
you’re in love with a gettin’ stoned woaahh
we’re in love with a janie jones woaahh
he don’t like his boring job, no

an’ the invoice it don’t quite fit
there’s no payola in his alphabetical file
this time he’s gonna really tell the boss
gonna really let him know exactly how he feels
it’s pretty bad!

he’s in love with a rock ‘n roll woaahh
he’s in love with a gettin’ stoned woaahh
he’s in love with a janie jones woaahh
he don’t like his boring job, no

woah, woah, woah
let them know
how you feel

About The Song

Band Thoughts:

None.

Staff Thoughts:

“I’ve never heard the Clashes version of this song, but I’m guessing Gavin did a pretty good job imitating it. Considering I could hardly translate half of what he was saying. Very punk. But after playing it a dozen times, it quite grows on you.”- Laura
