Mary Jane

Rick James



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Rick James' song "Marry Jane" is not an ode to a sexy woman, but rather a love song to marijuana, something D'Angelo's did years later on his song "Brown Sugar." (thanks, Nikki - Chicago, IL)
James wrote the song with his keyboard player Billy Nunn. It was his second single as a solo artist, his first being the album's title track.
