"Beeswax" as written by and Kurt Cobain....
Why doesn't she need him for a father?
Not only maidens can occupy my shack
Goring my manhood turns a man off.
Like Pepe LePew would say,
Hey, hey, hey! -- then we clash!

I got my diddly spayed

She laughs about it.
Shrinking inflections if the wind blows just right.
Jacking themselves off polyester.
I wanna jump, this isn't right!
Hey, when am I getting it back?

I don't know why,
I got a joke too silly to say.
Don't touch the balls.
I got a dick, dick -- hear my fucking hate!

If you're wondering, it's gaining monthly. (If your world is getting ugly)
Fiberglass insulated, the sky is cotton candy.
Spawning downstream, El Rancho Ovulate.
Feeling can't help me romp
Bill just fuck me, take me anal
Billy's slit reminds me of someone.
I'm sick of paying for the love boat
Tony and Tenille say wanna jump rope
And I say look!

I got my penis spayed,
I got a little tail,

I got my dingaling spayed
Nothing hard
I gotta be around pussy
Don't let me fall
I got a heh-heh...well you can't live
We got my dingaling spayed
When ya gonna learn?

    General CommentFirst of all, these are the lyrics as far as I know:

    I always stay here for the fire
    How many maidens are deprived of my shaft
    Cut off my manhood, it's just a matter of. . .
    I don't need no future.

    Say, hey hey,
    Here we crash!

    I got my dilly spayed
    I got my dilly spayed (REFRAIN)
    I got my dilly spayed
    I got my dilly.

    And now she laughs about it,
    Drinking inflections when the wind blows just right,
    Jagged tongues of polyester,
    How many chances to say it right?

    Hey,
    Never get it back

    (REFRAIN)

    I cut it off. . .
    Just like it's just a piece of string
    Don't judge for cause. . .
    Now I just dig dig

    Hear my fucking hate!

    (REFRAIN)

    Now if your world is getting ugly
    Fiberglass insulation in the sky like cotton candy
    Sonny now will save your tarantula ovulating,
    Freddy can't help being wrong
    Billy fucks me til I'm idle.
    Every slit reminds me of someone,
    Always say a prayer when you love both,
    No need to kneel
    Safe on your jump-rope,

    Better set of lungs,

    I got my queen of spades
    I cut my little tail
    I got my dilly spayed
    I got my dilly spayed

    I cut it off. . .
    I cut it off. . .
    I got no house. . .
    I just got hate. . .hate. . .

    WHere you gettin' this?!

    I got my dilly spayed
    I got my dilly spayed
    I got my dilly spayed
    I got my dilly spayed
    I got my dilly spayed
    I got my dilly spayed
    I got my dilly


    Secondly, this is not just a collection of sounds, there are actual lyrics, that simply were not released when teh song was transcribed to a magazine, nor to a tab book. Cobain would not give them permission to use these particualr lyrics, though whether it was actually his choice or not is unclear. The magazine did not try to figure out the lyrics, because in an earlier issue, they had tried to figure out the lyrics to "Big Cheese" and had utterly massacred them.

    The song is vey halluncinatory, and obviously drug influenced, which can make figuring the meaning rather difficult. Overall, I would say that the song is about a man who castrates himself, during a bad trip, or because of previous sexual abuse and mental illness, or a combination of both.

    Definately one of the harder-edged songs by Nirvana, and one of my favorites. .. too bad most people dismiss it as "not have real lyrics" or being "filler."

    General CommentDamn you all. Here are the lyrics as written by Cobain himself in one of his journals, possibly the page was photographed at the EMP.

    I was a seeking out for a funnel - not only magnets but i could pry bar it shut - glueing my manhood in a manhole like peppy lepew the scent hey hey had a lightweight clutch - I got my titilate spayed
    hydraulic push of kitty assbutton - tweeking and flexing if the wind blows just right - Tacky & thumbs on polyester - highwater jumpsuits and a raped ape - Woody has Pix-n-Facts - I got my titilate spayed (x5)
    dont trust the foams - no substitutes silly string
    my how youve grown - I gotta Hey Hey have A nice fuckin day
    Vinegar and water is gaining monthly
    fiberglass insulation disguised as cotton candy
    Spahning down stream el rancho ovulate
    Feeding a cow hamburger and raw - Peter has
    brought me the tiki idol - billy's sneer reminds me
    of someone - Homesick A Bay Aboard the love boat
    Toni Tenile Sonny Bono - Charo had a nice set of lungs
    I got my titilate spayed


    (i'm aware cobain doesnt sing these lyrics word for word)

    General CommentThis song is about putting pollen on your cock so bees will suck it, therefore leaving beeswax on it along with a gush of semen.

    General CommentAlso, I forgot to add that the words, aside from the "Heavyweight clash!" line, are all gibberish. Kurt did this intentionally. He submitted the song with a note indicating that the words are completely gibberish, and are meant to express the intensity and melody of the song. He wished to rewrite the words to coincide with whatever wrestler adopted the song as his entrance music.

    General CommentIt's a shame when people try to decipher Beeswax and Tourettes...Kurt even said there were no lyrics...I mean, there ARE wrds for Beeswax, but nothing ever released...and come on, "Fiberglass situation is as can as cotton candy"....i think the best babble agreed upon was "Fiberglass insulated, the sky is cotton candy" But you know, whatever works.
