About A Girl (Kurt Cobain) - Bleach
I need an easy friend
I do with a hand to lend
I do think you fit this shoe
I do what you have a clue

I'll take advantage while
You hang me out to dry
But I can't see you every night free
I do

I'm standing in your light
I do hope you have the time
I do pick up number two
I do keep a date with you

[Repeat chorus]

[Repeat first verse and chorus]

I can't see you every night free
I do, I do, I doback to top
Come As You Are
Come as you are, as you were
As I want you to be
As a friend, as a friend
As an old enemy
Take your time, hurry up
The choice is your
Don't be late, take a rest
As a friend
As an old memoria
memoria, memoria, memoria

Come dowsed in mud, soaked in bleach
As I want you to be
As a trend, as a friend
As an old memoria
memoria, memoria, memoria

And I swear that I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun

memoria, memoria, memoria, memoria

And I swear that I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun [Repeat 5x]

Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam
Jesus don't want me for a sunbeam
'Cause sunbeams are never made like me
Don't expect me to cry, for all the reasons you had to die
Don't ever ask your love of me

Don't expect me to cry
Don't expect me to lie
Don't expect me to die for theeback to top
Man Who Sold The World
We passed upon the stairs,
We spoke of was and when
Although I wasn't there
He said I was his friend
Which came as a surprise
I spoke into his eyes -- I thought you died alone
A long long time ago

Oh no, not me,
We never lost control,
You're face to face,
With the man who sold the world

I laughed and shook his hand,
I made my way back home,
I searched for form and land,
Years and years I roamed,
I gazed a gazely stare,
We walked a million hills -- I must have died alone,
A long long time ago.

Who knows, not me,
I never lost control,
You're face, to face,
With the man who sold the world.back to top
Pennyroyal Tea
I'm on my time with everyone
I have very bad posture

Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
Distill the life that's inside of me
Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
I'm anemic royalty

Give me a Leonard Cohen afterworld
So I can sigh eternally

I'm so tired I can't sleep
I'm anemic royalty
I'm a liar and a thief
I'm anemic royalty

I'm on warm milk and laxatives
Cherry-flavored antacids

Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
Distill the life that's inside of me
I'm anemic royalty
I'm anemic royaltyback to top
Dumb
I'm not like them
But I can pretend
The sun is gone
But I have a light
The day is done
But I'm having fun
I think I'm dumb
Or maybe just happy

Think I'm just happy [Repeat 3x]

My heart is broke
But I have some glue
Help me inhale
And mend it with you
We'll float around
And hang out on clouds
Then we'll come down
And I have a hangover

Have a hangover [Repeat 3x]

Skin the sun
Fall asleep
Wish away
The soul is cheap
Lesson learned
Wish me luck
Soothe the burn
Wake me up

[Repeat first verse and chorus]

I think I'm dumb [Repeat 12x]back to top
Polly
Polly Wants a Cracker
I think I should get off her first
I think she wants some water
To put out the blow torch

It isn't me, we have some seed
Let me clip your dirty wings
Let me take a ride, don't hurt yourself
I want some help to help myself
I've got some rope, you have been told
I promise you, I've been true
Let me take a ride, don't hurt yourself
I want some help to help myself

Polly wants a cracker
Maybe she would like more food
She asks me to untie her
A chase would be nice for a few

[Repeat chorus]

Polly said
Polly says her back hurts
And she's just as bored as me
She caught me off my guard
It amazes me, the will of instinct

[Repeat chorus]back to top
On A Plain
I'll start this off
Without any words
I got so high that
I scratched 'til I bled

Love myself
Better than you
I know it's wrong
So what should I do?

The finest day
That I ever had
Was when I learned
To cry on command

I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain

My mother died
Every night
It's safe to say
Don't quote me on that

The black sheep got
Blackmailed again
Forgot to put
On the zip code

[Repeat chorus]

Somewhere I have heard this before
In a dream my memory has stored
As defense I'm neutered and spayed
What the hell am I trying to say?

It is now time
To make it unclear
To write off lines
That don't make a sense

One more special
Message to go
And then I'm done
And I can go home

[Repeat chorus]back to top
Something in the Way
Underneath the bridge
The tarp has sprung a leak
And the animals I've trapped
Have all become my pets
And I'm living off of grass
And the drippings from the ceiling
But it's ok to eat fish
Cause they don't have any feelings

Something in the way, Mmmm...
Something in the way, yeah, Mmmm...
Something in the way, Mmmm...
Something in the way, yeah, Mmmm...

Plateau
Many a hand has scaled the grand old face of the plateau
Some belong to strangers and some to folks you know
Holy ghosts and talk show hosts are planted in the sand
To beautify the foothills and shake the many hands

There's nothing on the top but a bucket and a mop
And an illustrated book about birds
You see a lot up there but don't be scared
Who needs action when you got words

When you're finished with the mop then you can stop
And look at what you've done
The plateau's clean, no dirt to be seen
And the work it took was fun

[Repeat Chorus]

Well the many hands began to scan around for the next plateau
Some said it was in greenland and some in mexico
Others decided it was nowhere except for where they stood
But those were all just guesses, wouldn't help you if they
couldback to top
Oh Me
If I had to lose a mile
If I had to touch feelings
I would lose my soul
The way I do

I don't have to think
I only have to do it
The results are always perfect
And that's old news

Would you like to hear my voice
Sweetened with emotion
Invented at your birth?

I can't see the end of me
My whole expanse I cannot see
I formulate infinity
And store it deep inside of me

[Repeat verses and chorus]back to top
Lake Of Fire
Where do bad folks go when they die?
They don't go to heaven where the angels fly
They go down to the lake of fire and fry

Won't see 'em again till the fourth of july

I knew a lady who came from duluth
She got bit by a dog with a rabid tooth
She went to her grave just a little too soon
And she flew away howling on the yellow moon

[Repeat Chorus]

Now the people cry and the people moan
And they look for a dry place to call their home
And try to find some place to rest their bones
While the angels and the devils
Fight to claim them for their ownback to top
All Apologies
What else should I be
All apologies
What else should I say
Everyone is gay
What else could I write
I don't have the right
What else should I be
All apologies

In the sun
In the sun I feel as one
In the sun
In the sun
I'm married
Buried

I wish I was like you
Easily amused
Find my nest of salt
Everything is my fault
I'll take all the blame
Aqur scafoam shame
Sunburn with freezeburn
Choking on the ashes of her enemy

[Repeat Chorus]

I'm married
Buried, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

All in all we all are [Repeat 13x]back to top
Where Did You Sleep Last Night
My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I'm going where the cold wind blows
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

Her husband, was a hard working man
Just about a mile from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
But his body never was found

My girl, my girl, where will ya go
I'm going where the cold wind blows
In the pines, the pines
The sun, the shine
I'll shiver the whole night throughback to top
