about

Orphan Jane New York, New York

Orphan Jane is circus tents and gypsies, traditional blues and vaudeville, a dear friend of whom you're just a little afraid. Like a drink cut with sharp mandolins, wheezing accordions and thrilling falsettos, chased by the driving lines of a standup bass. A vocalist equal parts Lotte Lenya and Little Mermaid with a band of hooligans growling close behind. Classic American folk tradition made new. ... more

Track Name: The Banker
I want your money
Ain't that funny I want my money too,
I want your money,
That's not funny that will never do,
I call and call and call and call
But I won't answer you,
I prefer not to, is that okay?

You're facing charges for your lies,
I might be facing fines,
We wait in line outside the bank,
And whine and whine and whine,
I swear I'll pay the debts I owe,
But first you must pay mine!
I prefer not to, is that okay?

I put my money in your little bank and trust,
We all believed in you and then it all went bust,
You have to help me or my world will turn to dust,
Yonder stands the man of ill employ!
[All Together] THE BANKER!

We ask you questions, lots of questions,
But we will not respond,
They ask and ask and ask and ask,
It's on and on and on,
We're spreading tales about you now,
They think I will abscond,
I prefer not to, is that okay?

It isn't easy, never easy,
To endlessly pretend,
That we are willing ever willing,
To do what you intend,
I've got a message for you all,
That I don't care to send,
I prefer not to, is that okay?

They spend their evenings lying outside by the pool,
The days were steamy but the summer nights were cool,
But you can't do that when you've follow all the rules
Yonder stands the man of ill employ!

[Together now!] THE BANKER!

We want your money,
Ain't that funny I want my money too,
I want my money,
That ain't funny and simply will not do,
You think that I might lose some sleep
From causing pain to you,
I prefer not to,
He prefers not to!
I prefer not to!
He prefers not to!
I prefer not to!
Is that okay?
Track Name: The Northern Mile
Cry a tear for the dreamer,
That walks the northern mile,
Trying to reach safety,
From a world that had gone wild.

Oh lord, be careful of the river.
Oh lord, be careful of the anger that it hides.

Say a prayer for the child
That climbs the border gate,
Wishing for some sanity,
But finding only hate.

Oh lord, be careful of the river.
Oh lord, be careful of the anger that it hides.

Find a place in your memory
For those who traveled far,
Wanting just a welcome,
Worn out beneath the stars.

Oh lord, be careful of the river.
Oh lord, be careful of the anger that it hides.
