  • Goodbye to Jane, goodbye to Jane
    She's a dark horse see if she can
    Goodbye to Jane, goodbye to Jane
    Painted up like a fancy young man
    She's a queen,
    Can't you see what I mean, she's a queen,
    See, see, she's a queen
    And I know she's alright, alright, alright, alright

    I say you're so young, you're so young
    I say you're so young, you're so young
    I say you're so young, you're so young

    I said goodbye to Jane, goodbye to Jane
    Get a kick from her forties tip boots
    Goodbye to Jane, goodbye to Jane
    Has them made to match up to her suits
    She's a queen,
    Can't you see what I mean, she's a queen,
    See, see, she's a queen
    And I know she's alright, alright, alright, alright

    I say you're so young, you're so young
    I say you're so young, you're so young
    I say you're so young, you're so young

    I said goodbye to Jane, goodbye to Jane
    Like a dark horse see how she ran
    Goodbye to Jane, goodbye to Jane
    Spits on me 'cause she knows that she can
    She's a queen,
    Can't you see what I mean, she's a queen,
    See, see, see, she's a queen
    And I know she's alright, alright, alright, alright

    I say you're so young, you're so young
    I say you're so young, you're so young
    I say you're so young, you're so young
    I say you're so young, she's alright, alright, alright, alright
    I say she's so young, so young, alright, alright
    I say you're so young ...

  • Percy from Melbourne, AustraliaNoddy Holder is, in fact, the rhythm guitarist of the band, although he did do bass duty on a couple of songs like " Coz I luv you " for instance.
    Jimmy Lea played bass all the time except when we was required to play the violin or keyboards.
  • Jonathan from Newark, Nywow Iwas 22 and fresh out the army when this came out. Those were the days!
  • Zabadak from London, EnglandThis recording is characterised by its unusual production. Noddy's vocals are very closely mic'd and his bass is quite prominent. The use of maracas echoes that in Jumpin' Jack Flash and adding Don Powell's loud drum intro makes it a real surprise that this belter didn't hit #1 in the UK!
