"How Dirty Girls Get Clean" as written by Linda Perry, Paul Ill, Billy Corgan, Pete Thorn and Courtney Love....
I've lost my mind yeah, I've lost control
I've the lost the feeling in my arms, I'm a lost soul
Make the most of me baby, oh don't spit me out
This is how dirty girls get clean, don't leave me now

Listen to her lust, yeah, hear her disgrace
Listen to the fragile things as they all break
Watch from the covers, the comfort of your home
Through the ice and sleet baby, oh down down we go

What angry star runs your devil heart?
What angry star runs your devil heart?
Oh oh, how'd you get so mean?
This is the only way d-dirty girls stay clean

And I wanted you like no one before
Said you're coming back for me honey
This is how hell forms
This is how a storm begins

This is how trouble's born
Listen to sleep
Listen to her wail
You've given birth to terrible things, watch them unveil

Listen to my torment
Listen to my pain
Please come on back here baby, let me try again
What angry star runs your devil heart?

What angry star runs your devil heart?
Oh oh, how'd you get so mean?
This is the only way d-dirty girls stay clean
And the rain it poured down

And the wind it moaned
And she wrapped her legs around him
And she's got no home
And he's looking at me, oh god he looks so dumb

What are you staring at? This is how it's done
I will define for you, the meaning of greed
While you were vanishing, this dirty girl got clean
What angry star runs your devil heart?

What angry star runs your devil heart?
Oh oh, how'd you get so mean?
This is the only way d-dirty girls stay clean
Oh oh, how'd you get so mean?

This is the only way d-dirty girls stay clean
Oh oh, how'd you get so mean?
This is the only way d-dirty girls stay clean

    General CommentNo comments?! C'mon, people! This is probably my second-favorite song off of Nobody's Daughter. I think it's basically about cleaning up from a rough past.
