"Mrs. Butterworth" as written by and Kurt Cobain....
Your life is shit
Shit
Your life is over
Bull
Your life is mine
Cry
Your life is hell
Hell
I'm gonna die
Dying with you just
I'm going to die
To wear my libido
I'm gonna try
To find it with you just
I'm gonna try
Do what they say
Your life is shit
Shit
Your life is strange
And insane
Your life is not the size of crap
Your life is now
Now
I'm gonna die
Dying with you just
I'm going to hell
Without my libido
I'm gonna try
To find it with you just
I'm going to hell
Without my libido
I'm gonna die
Dying with you just
I'm going to hell
Without my libido
I'm gonna try
To find it with you just
I'm gonna die
Do what they say
Your life is shit
"I'm gonna open myself up a flea market
I'm gonna open myself up a flea market
And you're gonna wish that you did
And retire on the profits
First off
I'm gonna empty out all of my Mrs. Butterworth jars
And I'm gonna put 'em on a shelf with my 800 dollar a month tax free Century 21
Shop

And then I am going to put my Mrs. Butterworth syrup jars on the shelf
Next to all the commemorative fast food chain glasses and cups I've accumulated
Over the past 62 years

Then I'm going to get some plywood
I'm going to get some plywood and cut them up into two by two piece squares
Then I'm going to get some burlap and I'm going to cut them into two by two
Piece squares and then I'm going to put them onto the pieces of plywood

And then I'm going to go to the beach
I'm going to go to the beach and I'm gonna collect some shells and driftwood
And then I'm going to take the shells and driftwood and glue them onto the
Plywood and burlap

And sell em for lots of money
People will be paying top dollar for my kids new used new toys and clothing
Then maybe someday I can get rid of that pissed stained matress I've been
Sleeping on..."

    General CommentYour life is shit (shit)
    Your life is bogus (bull)
    Your life is crime (crime)
    Your life is hell (hell)

    I'm gonna die, start a new union
    I'm gonna die, with my libido
    I'm gonna die, start a new union
    I'm gonna die, don't fuck with me

    Your life is shit (shit)
    Your life is clean (it is clean)
    Your life is lame, it's not so funny
    Your life is stale (frail, frail!)

    I'm gonna die, start a new union
    I'm gonna hell on my libido
    I'm gonna die, start a new union
    I'm gonna hell on my libido
    I'm gonna die, start a new union
    I'm gonna hell on my libido
    I'm gonna die, start a new union
    I'm gonna die, watch the pain!

    Your life is shit.

    General Commentwhy'd they leave out the middle of the song, the part where kurt talks about his get rich quick scheme, download the song and hear the full version its kinda funny, nirvana music was better before kurt started using heroin, this is a pretty good song, the lyrics go with the beat and guitar and drums

    General CommentI'm really sorrry for noet putting the complete version on the site. It's a very difficult song espacialy the part where he talks about getting rich and all, I was busy putting that on when my computer flipped out. So I couldn't put it on the site. Momentarely working on that part of the song. I am dutch, so it's hard for me to translate it. I can't define al the words so some of them maby are wrong. If you know the lines please send them to my mail

    General CommentShut up man! I did my best at this song, if you think you can do it better why don't you put it on yourself.
    But at least have some respect for that i've tried. I said already I was dutch so some words can be wrong. But I think he says these things cause I hear them while he's singin. So be my guesst and suprise me, put your version on
