lyrics

There Oughta Be A Law
(Rogers)

I feel so sorry for Jane
It must have been the biggest breakup in herstory
And I can see she's really in pain
And that she's only trying to think up a remedy

But when Jane says there oughta be a law
I oughta tell her that I'd rather get a saw
To cut off both her legs and put her in a bog
Where she can legislate the mosquitos and the frogs
When Jane says...

Jane didn't think it was fair
To break the fragile heart of a shy professor
But if she's so shy, why is she there
On CBS This Morning and the Wall Street Journal?

And when Jane says there oughta be a law
I oughta send her up in Apollo 18
To Jupiter with all her legal jerks
So they can give it a shot there and come back if it works
When Jane says...

Well, Eden may be where it started
But Jane is surely where it ends
She'll leave a gender broken-hearted
Or at least with nothing left to spend

Jane doesn't see why a girl
Should have to live and learn even if she's stupid
She can already imagine a world
Where you'd rather be a eunuch than to mess with cupid

So when Jane says there oughta be a law
I oughta take her to a great big waterfall
And put her in a boat and push her to the edge
And maybe love can still save her, even when she's dead
When Jane says...
