Jane & Suze



Jane and Suze 'came home' today,

both icons, in their way,

cover girls, but years apart,

both could break a young man's heart.

Jane, in the outlaw

looked undone,

Suze with Bob just having fun.

Freewheelin girls

both with style

who brightened our grey lives. for a while.

Today they took their final curtain,

and now their safe, of that, I'm certain.

So thank you both for what you've done,

just two girls, having fun.
