"Son of a Gun" as written by Eugene Kelly and Frances Mckee....
Up, up, up and down
Turn, turn, turn around
Round, round, round about
And over again

Gun, gun, son of a gun
You are the only one
Makes any difference to what I say

The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

Up, up, up and down
Turn, turn, turn around
Round, round, round about
And over again

Gun, gun, son of a gun
You are the only one
Makes any difference to what I say

The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

Up, up, up and down
Turn, turn, turn around
Round, round, round about
And over again

Gun, gun, son of a gun
You are the only one
Makes any difference to what I say

The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

    General CommentI believe the lyrics in the chorus go "Young gun, son of a gun/ you are the only one/ who makes any difference to what i say"

    This song is about that person, who for the time that he/ she is with you, feel all happy upbeat. But the minute they leave, you feel gloomy again. ("The raining always starts/ when you go away")

    this is actually a cover of a Vaselines song.

    General CommentWell, is it a cover now or what? If it wasn't i'd guess the reason for kurt to have a happy tune to the song is because he means it ironical.

    Guns were always in his life, his stepfather had guns, and later he had guns, every gun for one reportet or someone he hated, because they slways wrote shit about him in articles...... so maybe he thought he was a son of a gun.

    General CommentI'm sure you think he named Frances after Frances Farmer but what Blackstar said is true. Kurt gave Frances the middle name Bean because that's what she looked like in the ultra sound photo things.

    BTW
    I love this song. I think it's their best cover.
