"Gabrielle" as written by and John Davenport Eddie Cooley....
I don't mean to be so insolent
But you know it's cause I love you
The foundation of my malevolence
You know I'd never hurt you babe

Sometimes I might get edgy
But a man can sometimes be that way
And nobody's perfect baby
And I'll always love you anyway

Oh, Gabrielle
The sun is shinning in your eyes
Oh, Gabrielle
I didn't mean to make you cry
Oh, my sweet baby doll
I put you above everything
Oh, Gabrielle
I love you til the day I die

Sometimes I feel like my old man
You know that's hard for me to say
And sometimes I just lose my head
Don't know why I get that way
I want to keep you happy darling
It could only work out that way
Nobody's perfect baby
And I'll always love you anyway

Oh, Gabrielle
The sun is shinning in your eyes
Oh, Gabrielle
I didn't mean to make you cry
Oh, my sweet baby doll
I put you above everything
Oh, Gabrielle
I love you til the day I die

Gabrielle
Gabrielle

Well Gabrielle
You know I love you baby
Do nothing to hurt you baby
But you know I got to love you anyway
Oh, Gabrielle, you're so nice
You know I, I love you baby
Oh, my my my my my my my

Oh, Gabrielle
The sun is shinning in your eyes
Oh, Gabrielle
I didn't mean to make you cry
Oh, my sweet baby doll
I put you above everything
Oh, Gabrielle
I love you til the day I die
Gabrielle

    General CommentOh my god, i cannot believe no-one has commented on this song yet, its such a good song. It makes me want to name my child Gabrielle, lol.

    I think it's pertty obvious what it's about though - its about a guy who obviously had a fight with his girl but wrote this song to apologize and show how much he loves her.

    I love this song to bits xD

    General CommentLove this song. My second-favorite of all time. It reminds me so much of the crazy nut I love--he introduced me to Ween.

    It's like honey for the ears.

    General Comment@ Ludwig

    Funny you mention that, I fell in love with the guy who introduced me to ween, and this was the first song he sent me over AIM to apologize for hurting me (he accidentally made me trip and really hurt myself). He actually was trying to send the ween songs friends, but i got this, and the second i heard it, i couldnt get it out of my head. at all.

    General CommentSong's about rough anal sex. Obviously he wanted some back door action and she didn't, he went for it anyway and he's apologetic. Brown as fuck.
