"Scentless Apprentice (Nirvana cover)" as written by Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic....
Like most babies smell like butter
His smell smelled like no other
He was born scentless and senseless
He was born a scentless apprentice

Go away - get away, get away, get a-way
Every wet nurse refused to feed him
Electrolytes smell like semen

I promise not to sell your perfumed secrets
There are countless formulas for pressing flowers

I lie in the soll and fertilize mushrooms
Leaking out gas fumes are made into perfume

You can't fire me because I quit
Throw me in the fire and I won't throw a fit

    General CommentIt's a good cover. Bruce Loose sounds waaaay more pissed off than Kurt does when he sings it.
