by Jerome Kern (music) and P. G. Wodehouse (lyrics)
Song from the musical Leave It to Jane.
Sheet music cover

[Verse]

(Bessie.) Our gentle Jane,
When it comes to brain
Can make a quite a show
(Jane.) It's wicked you know,
To flatter me so.
(Stub.) She's cooler than ice
So take my advice:
If you've a problem,
Don't you think twice:

[Refrain]

(Bessie & Stub.) Leave it to Jane, Jane, Jane.
(Jane.) (I don't know why you should make me plot and plan for you)
(Bessie & Stub.) She is the girl with brain!
(Jane.) (I always try to do ev'rything I can for you)
(Bessie & Stub.) No problem you can wish on her gives a strain:
She'll tackle gaily a score or more daily.
If something is on your mind.
(Jane.) (And I can see that there is not a doubt of it.)
(Bessie & Stub.) Comfort you soon will find;
(Jane.) Leave it to me, I will soon get you out of it)
(Bessie & Stub.) If you have started worrying Kindly refrain.
(Bessie, Stub & Jane.) And just hand over the whole thing to Jane!

[Verse]

(Jane.) I've been that way,
From a child they say.
(Stub.) When she was but two,
Our Jane always knew
The right thing to do.
(Bessie.) Her tact and sense
Were simply immense:
(Stub.) That's why we say with
Fervor intense:

[Refrain]

(Bessie & Stub.) Leave it to Jane, Jane, Jane.
(Jane.) (I don't know why you should make me plot and plan for you)
(Bessie & Stub.) She is the girl with brain!
(Jane.) (I always try to do ev'rything I can for you)
(Bessie & Stub.) No problem you can wish on her gives a strain:
She'll tackle gaily a score or more daily.
If something is on your mind.
(Jane.) (And I can see that there is not a doubt of it.)
(Bessie & Stub.) Comfort you soon will find;
(Jane.) Leave it to me, I will soon get you out of it)
(Bessie & Stub.) If you have started worrying Kindly refrain.
(Bessie, Stub & Jane.) And just hand over the whole thing to Jane!
