"Autumn in Jayne" (sometimes listed as "Autumn Jane", "Autumn in Jane", etc) is a song written by Rivers Cuomo in 1997.


According to the Recording History, the song was initially recorded on a DA-88 by Cuomo in September of 1997. The song was performed live twice at the two live Homie shows in November of that year. The song was rehearsed as part of a potential Homie album that never materialized.


I don't remember what you said to me
Was it you would or that you wouldn't be?
I gave you my lovin' in the springtime
But then until now is such a long time

And all the dirty boys on the street are looking for a new game
Would you leave me with the same?
And all the pretty girls gonna try and tie him down
It's autumn in Jayne

Gettin' to rock up in the dance hall
Saturday nights we had a real ball
And I was so proud to be your boyfriend
But now we lost what we had then

I see the leaves are catching fire
The birds are flyin' from their homes
And all around the world is crying
So I say goodbye to autumn in Jayne
