"My Friend Goo" as written by Kim Gordon, Lee M. Ranaldo, Steven Jay Shelley and Thurston Joseph Moore....
My friend Goo has a real tattoo
She always knows just what to do
She looks through her hair like she doesn't care
What she does best is stand and stare

She can play the drums set too
And the boys say, "hey Goo what's new?"
My friend Goo just says, "Hey you"
My friend Goo just says, "Hey you"

I know a secret or two about Goo
She won't mind if I tell you
She likes to wear green underwear
And lays down most anywhere

She doesn't have nothing to do
And the boys say, "hey Goo what's new?"
My friend Goo goes, "Hey you"
My friend Goo goes, "Hey you"

I know a secret or two about Goo
She won't mind if I tell you
I know a secret or two about Goo
I know a secret about Goo and you

And she sticks just like glue
And the boys goes, "hey Goo what's new?"
My friend Goo just goes, "Hey you"
My friend Goo just goes, "Hey you"

Goo Goo Goo
Goo Goo Goo

Goo Goo Goo
My friend Goo
Goo Goo Goo
Talkin' 'bout Goo
Goo Goo Goo
My friend Goo
Goo Goo Goo
You would too
Goo

    General Commentfor some reason, when i first listened to this song, i always got the impression that the chick Goo was lesbian.. because the guys were saying "hey Goo what's new" (cracking onto her) and she said "pee-yew" to them, and guys in general (because she was gay). i don't know if that is right, it's just the impression i got at first.
    great song, so fun.

    General Commenti think the lyric might be "she can play the drumset, too" rather than "she can play the drums in two". seems to make more sense and of course it's important for rock lyrics to not be vague in any way.

    General CommentI always heard "and lays down 'most anywhere," which could be a mondegreen. and if so, amusingly Freudian. however, I'm not certain "they stand almost anywhere" is more credible.

    General CommentThe song is about a punk rock shit who is empowered and doesn't give a fuck. The boys in the scene think she's hot and try to hit on her without knowing anything about her - not even her name. She just shrugs them off.

    General Commentit's the peeyew kind. i take it the simple way... it's about goo. and how we all have it. and how maybe it's actually grossed out of us. so just be friends with it, cuz it's part you, too.

    General Commentin the video clip she pinches her nose every time she says pee-yew so yes it is pee-yew not hey you. and if this song is about groupies then i think its about the stereo type on them and goo doesnt fit it and is trying to make a point about it. but yeah i'm not sure
