Mike Jane


Is this the baby brother of the famous Mary Jane? When we were very young, the name Mary Jane conjured up the following words*:

What is the matter with Mary Jane?
She’s crying with all her might and main,
And she won’t eat her dinner, rice pudding again ...
What is the matter with Mary Jane?

When we were a bit older it brought to mind other ditties, by Lennon/McCartney, Janis Joplin, Tom Petty, Pete Townshend, Technohead, Alanis Morissette, Tori Amos, Mary J. Blige** as well as numerous other songwriters.

* from When We Were Very Young by A A Milne 1924
** Mary Jane Blige sampled the Mary Jane Girls on her song
