Jane Doe

Perhaps there's one better, perhaps
Perhaps there's one worse, all right
 
But like the Jane* I have
In the whole world there's none like her
Jane Doe, it's Jane and is Jane my dear
 
If I'm not John nothing
Jane of mine is Jane Doe
Jane Doe is Jane like all the others too
 
But she's still better than many Janes out there
Janes so cold with strange habits
Janes so empty to bear that name
Jane Doe is a gift for very few men
Given the amount of Janes there is and no Jane to them
 
Jane Doe, it's Jane and is Jane my dear
If I'm not John nothing
Jane of mine is Jane Doe
Jane of mine is Jane Doe

*João/Maria Ninguém = John/Jane Doe

The song is all about rhyming and is very Brazilian at its core, I tried to rhyme when the meaning wouldn't be lost. Feel free to contact me =]
