PLAIN JANE

 

Verse 1:

She wore glasses, she had braces

The boys all called her names

They would tease her, they would taunt her

They’d call her plain Jane

 

Pre-chorus

No one recognized her

No one knew her name

The boys gathered round her

They fell for plain Jane

 

Chorus

Plain Jane

Plain Jane

Plain Jane

Plain Jane

 

Verse 2:

Young Jane was an ugly duckling

She soon became a swan

Call time for a class reunion

Her braces were long gone

 

Pre-chorus

 

Chorus

 

Bridge:

She became a butterfly

A beauty to behold

But those years of cruelty

Had made her heart grow cold

Mobbing, bullying and name-calling are absolute no-nos in my world. As a kid I was mobbed a couple of times. In the U.S. I was called a Nazi and a kraut eater. I had no idea what that was at the time. And later, here in Germany, on my first day at school someone wrote "Ami go home" on the chalkboard. Ami is the short form of American. Kids can be pretty cruel and parents play a huge roll in the way they act. Anyway, when I found this lyric from Carroll Kiphen here that touched the subject, I immediately knew I had to compose and record the music to go with it. It’s a sad tune, but I really feel it. Hope you like it.

This doesn't feel "sad" to me... Dramatic, then optimistic, but not sad. It works! ?
