Re: [LAMI.US] MARY JANE :-)))))
- Dear Lami,with my humble knowledge of grammar,I think it's the second considering Mary Jane as a material "what's Mary Jane?"but if we are asking about a person ,difinetly we'll be saying "who's Mary Jane?"Many Happy wishes in return for you and all the friends in this group.Sting----- Original Message -----Sent: Saturday, December 31, 2005 10:00 PMSubject: Re: [LAMI.US] MARY JANE :-)))))Sting, I believe that you are right!I hadn't heard of this song before, but always glad to be of help!Stinging question: Keeping in context, which of the following 2 questions is correct?Who is Mary Jane?What is Mary Jane?To you and everyone else, "Happy New Year's Eve and have a great 2006! I enjoy your participation in the group!"Green Day Lyrics
I'm the son of rage and love
The Jesus of suburbia
From the bible of none of the above
On a steady diet of soda pop and Ritalin
No one ever died for my sins in hell
As far as I can tell
At least the ones I got away with
And there's nothing wrong with me
This is how I'm supposed to be
In a land of make believe
That don't believe in me
Get my television fix sitting on my crucifix
The living room or my private womb
While the moms and brads are away
To fall in love and fall in debt
To alcohol and cigarettes and Mary Jane

I was singing along to a song as a teenager once when someone told me that the name "Mary Jane" in the song referred to Marijuana, and I angrily refused to believe it for years.Lyrics from Mary Jane sung by Rick James...
I'm in love with Mary Jane.
She's my main thing.
She makes me feel alright.
She makes my heart sing...Sra. Lami ~P.S.The name "Lois Lane" sticks with me from Superman, but, didn't remember that Peter Parker's/Spiderman's girlfriend's name was Mary Jane. Thanks for enlightening me!
