Hey fellas have you heard the news?
You know that Annie's back in town.
It won't take long just watch and see,
All the fellas lay their money down
Her style is new but the face is the same,
As it was so long ago.
But from her eyes a different smile,
Like that of one who knows.

Well it's been ten years and maybe more,
Since I first set eyes on you.
The best years of my life gone by,
Here I am alone and blue.
Some people cry and some people die,
By the wicked ways of love.
But I'll just keep on rolling along
With no grace from the Lord above

People talking all around,
About the way you left me flat.
I don't care what the people say,
I know where their jive is at.
One thing I do have on my mind,
If you can clarify please do,
It's the way you call me by another guy's name,
When I try to make love to you.

Work so hard I couldn't unwind,
Get some money saved.
Abuse my love a thousand times,
However hard I tried.
Heartbreaker your time has come,
Can't take your evil way.
Go away heartbreaker

    General CommentFor me, this song seems to be about a girl named "annie" who used to sleep around. Then she left town. Now, she's back, and "Her style is new but the face is the same As it was so long ago". Means that she has changed, she might not be as easy as before, but she looks and dresses the same tempting way.

    I think.

    General Commentthis recording is from the first gig nirvana played at a house party near aberdeen. these lyrics arn't the right ones from the led zeppelin song, but im sure they didn't sing the right ones anyways, man .NEVERMIND you are the biggest dipshit, you post on alot of nirvana songs, and im guessing your name is from nirvana's nevermind, but im guessing you must be young and not know your stuff about music, get a hint, come back when you can read and have read some books, or atleast listened to some music other than the hits you see on mtv

    General Comment^ Yep, the solo sounds terrible, nothing like the original. its only when you listen closely that you realise its actually *FAIRLY* accurate. Kurt trying to sing like Plant was a major mistake however

    General CommentPeople this was not even a cover. They were just fooling around. They said in the show that they didn't even know how to play the song. Krist's singing was bad on purpose. Yeas it's Krist singing, if you doubt, listen to Gypsies Tramps and Thieves cover and compare.

    General CommentFor someone who didn't know how to play it, he still had a decent idea of the solo

    General Commentthis is the FUNNIEST song ever, the way they play it cracks me up, and i completely disagree with 'nevermind'. its the other way around..
    .the "style is new"- meaning she dresses properly now or looks better,not like a slut anymore
    "but the face is the same"-meaning shes still the same on the inside, shes still a slut and has a flirty personality and so on....
