No One’s Leaving

No One’s Leaving is a Jane’s Addiction song that was written in early 1987.

Lyrics

I’m a white dread – I’m a white dread, so?
I’m a got a ring and I hang it from my nose
Got a little game and I take it to the park
I don’t care who plays, as long as the game is on

My sister and her boyfriend slept in the park
She had to leave home ’cause he was dark
Now they parade around in New York with a baby boy…
He’s gorgeous!
Ain’t nobody leaving!
Let’s go!

A-a-a-a-h-h-h-o-o-o-o-a-a-a-a-o-o-o…
No one, is leaving…

Blacks call each other “brother and sis’.”
Count me in ’cause I been missed
I’ve seen color changed by a kiss
Ask my brother and my sister

My sister and her boyfriend slept in the park
She had to leave home ’cause he was dark
Now they parade around in New York with a baby boy…
He’s gorgeous!
Ain’t nobody leaving!
Act wild!

A-a-a-a-h-h-h-o-o-o-o-a-a-a-a-o-o-o…
No one, is leaving!
No one, is leaving!

I wish I knew everyone’s nickname, all their slang and all their sayings
Every way to show affection, how to dress to fit the occasion…
I wish we all waved…
All waved…
All waved, I wish we all…
I wish we all!
Wish we all!
Wish we all
waved…
