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?
