Sister Jane- New World

Australian trio who were popular from late 60’s to mid 70’s, they had quite a few hits, this one and Tom Tom Turnaround.

With catchy lyrics by the hit making duo of Chinn/Chapman and produced by Micky Most, it had hit written all over it.

Sister Jane

(c) Chinn/Chapman

Come in
sit down
pull up a chair.
Speak the truth when you tell me your cares;
Don't be afraid to talk to your brother

get a hold of yourself an' dry up your tears.
We'll start at the start
and end at the end
you'll find that your mind might possibly mend

I'm sure I can help you 'cos you can't help yourself.
Have you fallen in love again
have you fallen in love again ?

Sister Jane
you've gone and changed your name
you gotta get out soon
before you go insane
before the town starts talkin'
and they see you out walkin'
it sure does seem a shame
yes it sure does seem a shame.

Sister Jane
you've gone and changed your name
and I suggest you catch
the twelve forty five 'plane
before the fam'ly finds out
just what you've done
and holds you at the point of a gun
and that ain't gobnna be much fun.
Sister Jane.

We'll talk of the future
we'll talk of the past
the odds were against you it never could last
you can't think opinions will change overnight
when you know what you've done just ain't right.

You don't mean to tell me you've finally done it
you played at the game and you thought you had won it
and now that you find that you're way out of line
well some people call it a crime
yeah you really have done it this time.

Sister Jane
you've gone and changed your name
you gotta get out soon...

Sister Jane.

You told me the truth
you opened your mind
said I would listen
and help you unwind
my dear Sister Jane you've caused nothing but pain
and I really must tell you this time.

I knew all along you had to go wrong
in this kind of town you could never belong
I'm sorry for you
and I'm sorry for me
this is the way it should end
'cos you've fallen in love again.
