The Clash's Janie Jones from another point of view ...

 

She's saving up for a college course, whoa
She gets the cash and her boyfriend scores, whoa
She isn't helped by the vice laws, no
She don't mind her whoring job, no

And she knows what she's paid to do
She knows it's gonna be fun for you
- Not such a lucky lady
And she knows that when the evening comes
When others' work is done
She has another shift to do

She's saving up for a college course, whoa
She gets the cash and her boyfriend scores, whoa
She isn't helped by the vice laws, no
She don't mind her whoring job, no

Janie Jones says there's lots of work
Better plaster up, better not shirk
She's just like everyone, she's got ambitions
That won't pay for themselves
- Hit her up, Jacko

She's saving up for a college course, whoa
She gets the cash and her boyfriend scores, whoa
She isn't helped by the vice laws, no
She don't like her whoring job, no

Next on the list is that whingeing git
Moans about his job but don't do shit
- Send for the union, man!
He tells her he's gonna tell his boss
But she's the only one he ever tells how he feels
- It's pretty sad

She's saving up for a college course, whoa
She gets the cash and her boyfriend scores, whoa
She isn't helped by the vice laws, no
She don't like her whoring job, no
