"Hairspray Queen" as written by Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic....
I was young my an' you were mine.
My enemy you were, my an' I was young.
Your enemy you were, my an' I was young.
Your enemy you were, my an' I was once.
You ene...

You rang
Your ears rang

I was young my an' you were mine.
My enemy you were, my an' I was young.
Your enemy you were, my an' I was young.
Your enemy you were, my an' I was once.
You ene...

At night wishfull godess
At night crystal locket
At night mouth of almounds
At sight a fish full of garbage
At night disco god.

I was young my an' you were mine.
My enemy you were, my an' I was young.
Your enemy you were, my an' I was young.
Your enemy you were, my an' I was once.
You ene...

At night the wishfull godess
At night crystal locket
At night mouth of almounds
At sight a fish full of garbage
At night disco god.

I was young my an' you were mine.
My enemy you were, my an' I was young.
Your enemy you were, my an' I was young.
Your enemy you were, my an' I was once.
You ene...

At night she was so modest
At night crystal locket
At night mouth of almounds
At sight a fish full of garbage
At night disco god.

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

    General CommentThis is one of the earliest Nirvana songs actually. At Kurt's first "concert" at someone's stupid party (Dave grohl wasn't yet in the band...) . All I know is that everyone hated them, and that afterwards some shicky micky Girl with big hair came up to him and said that she found it so cute that the song was about her, she thought he had made it up while playing it FOR HER. He was really pissed off, and sweared at her and so on....
    hehehe

    General Commentfirst of all, you guys have got the lyrics ALL screwed up. if you look Journals, kurt had entirely different lyrics. And when you listen to hairspray queen on Incesticide, those are the exact lyrics he wrote in Journals:
    i was your mine, you were my my enemyy
    you would mind, i was your your enemy
    you were mine, i was your your enemy
    you were mine i was was your ena

    you rang, you raaaaang, uhhh!

    at night, wishful goddess
    at night was the hardest
    at night disco goddess
    at night, the witch go gaaawd

    (repeat 1st verse}

    at night, wishful goddess
    at night, she was the hardest
    at night, disco goddess,
    at night, she was so modest
    sight, crisco lochness
    at night, a mouthful omelette
    night wishful goddess
    at night, the witch go gaaawd

    General Commentthis song is weird. its really good though, and the guitar is awesome in it. I think incesticide is my favourite nirvana album.

    General CommentHmm I think this song does have a meaning. I can't picture Kurt just strewing lyrics together for the hell of it. doesn't seem like his style.

    When I read it to me it makes me think of some of my relationships...You were mine, I was yours, and then later on after we broke up we became enemies. The At Night Lyrics all seem to lead to wishing for sex and then getting it, except the very last one...Fish-filled garbage. It sort of sounds like ok I was in it for the sex and I thought I wanted you to be mine, but I'd rather have you as an enemy because now you make me think of fish-filled garbage...That is what the song means to me. Does that sound like a pretty accurate meaning?

    General CommentKurt actually at first just put words together because it sounded nice. At some times at least. I still his still tried to get some meaning into it. But this was before the nirvana time.....
