Hey Janie, go easy on the pork.
Don’t you know how to hold the fork?
Those spaghetti strings on your shoulder
Have gotta look good tomorrow too.
Another prom with the same old songs
But a different wuss to woo.

Hey Janie, take care to mind your ways
Will you disprove your Mama’s praise?
Don’t swim too far, don’t say those words
Don’t laugh too loud, you’ll scare those birds.
Don’t question a thing, just obey
If you are scared then just pray
Everything will soon be fine
If only you can toe the line.
