"Spank Thru" as written by and Kurt Cobain....
This song is for lovers out there
And the little light in the trees
And all the flowers have gingivitis
And the birds fly happily
We're together once again my love
I need you back oh baby baby
I can't explain just why we lost it from the start
Living without you girl you'll only break my heart...
I can feel it I can hold it I can rub it I can shape it
I can mold it I can cut it I can taste it I can spank it
Beat it
Masturbate it
I been looking for days now
Always hearing the same ol' city boy
Won't you spank through?
I can make you do things you won't think you ever could

    General CommentActually the lyrics are:

    And as the soft pretentious mountains
    Glisten in the light of the trees
    And all the flowers sing in D minor
    And the birds fly happily

    We'll be together once again my love
    I need you back, oh baby baby
    I can't explain just why we lost it from the start
    Living without you girl, you only break my heart

    I can feel it, I can hold it
    I can bend it, I can shape it, I can mold it
    I can cut it, I can taste it
    I can spank it, I can beat it, masturbate it

    I've been looking for day glow
    Always hearing the same ol'
    Sticky boredom with a book
    I can make it do things you wouldn't think it ever could

    I can feel it, I can hold it
    I can bend it, I can shape it, I can mold it
    I can cut it, I can taste it
    I can spank it, I can beat it, masturbate it

    I've been looking for day glow
    Always hearing the same ol'
    Sticky boredom with a book
    I can make it do things you wouldn't think it ever could

    I've been looking for day glow
    Always hearing the same ol'
    Sticky boredom with a book
    I can make it do things you wouldn't think it ever could
    You wouldn't think it ever could

    General CommentI agree with igomud,

    I think this song is about a guy who only wanted sex out of a relationship and he cannot understand why the girl left him, so now he misses the girl but only because he doesn't have anyone to masturbate him and now he has to do it himself.

    My InterpretationIn my opinion Spank Thru is about using masturbation in order to prevent rape. First by creating symbols (motif), emotions, action and moral consciousness.

    In the soft pretentious mountains
    (Making bold appearances or first impressions)
    Twas in the light of the trees
    (Possibilities and confidence)
    And all the flowers sing in D minor
    (Possibly near the end of their life cycle minor keys are usually sad)
    And the birds fly happily
    (Happily taking flight or leaving; migration)

    We'll be together once again my love
    I need you back, oh baby baby
    I can't explain just why we lost it from the start
    Living without you girl, you only break my heart
    (Candid desperation through first denial, desperation, confusion then sadness)

    I can feel it, I can hold it
    I can bend it, I can shape it, I can mold it
    (contorting one's genitals in order to masturbate while imagining a partner)
    I can cut it, I can taste it (self grooming and infatuation)
    I can spank it, I can beat it, masturbate it (ejaculation)

    I've been looking for day glow (every day brings new light/ new opportunity)
    Always hearing the same ol' (Having confidence even after rejection)
    Sticky boredom with a book
    I can make it do things you wouldn't think it ever could (asserting sexuality)

    General CommentYou can't argue over the true lyrics of the song. Kurt changed the lyrics when he performed this live, a lot of the lyrics are not consistent.
