"Courtney" as written by and Parry Gripp Dave Ehrlich....
You came from some town out in the sticks
To become the modern Stevie Nicks
You had the guts, a lot of ambition
The riot grrrls thought you were bitchin'
You bared your soul
You showed us your hole

Courtney Love don't throw it all away
Courtney Love don't you go changin'
Courtney Love Courtney Courtney Love

I saw you in a movie about pornography
You were looking pale and kind of saggy
I have to say it made me woozy
When you fucked Woody Harrelson in the jacuzzi
You wore grungy clothes
And doctors fixed your nose

Courtney Love don't throw it all away
Courtney Love don't you go changin'
Courtney Love Courtney Courtney Love

Now I'm overweight and ugly
Just like you used to be
Why can't I be like you
Then we could drive away to Malibu
I hope I'm not out of place but
Courtney Love sit on my face

Courtney Love don't throw it all away
Courtney Love what about me I'm not gay
Courtney Love Courtney Courtney Love

Gold dust woman...
Never break the chain

    General CommentEverything in this song about Courtney is true and I still love her. She is a bitch and probably could be considered a whore as well...what of it?

    People find her threatening or they wouldn't be so inclined to mouth off about her and try to put her in "her place".

    More power to her.

    General Comment"More power to her."

    What's your point?
    Do you mean more power = more money
    more money = more drugs
    If you are...I agree!

    General Commentcourtney love is the biggest piece of white trash out there...it's hard to believe someone with no talent made it so far but i guess being married to kurt had it's advantages... so courtney is a whore, and a bitch and i agree with everyone but phoebe who obviously doesn't see what courtney really is...
