"Back Off Bitch" as written by W. Axl Rose, Paul H. Tobias, Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, Izzy Stradlin, Darren A. Reed and Matt Sorum....
Oh baby, pretty baby
Oh honey, you let me down honey
I ain't playin' childhood games no more
I said it's time for me
To even the score
So stake your claim
Your claim to fame
But baby call another name
When you feel the fire
And taste the flame

Back off, back off bitch
Down in the gutter dyin' in the ditch
You better back off, back off bitch
Face of an angel with the love of a witch
Back off, back off bitch
Back off, back off bitch

Makin' love
Cheap heartbreaker, broken backed
Nasty ballbreaker, stay out of my bed, outta my head
If it's lovin' you
I'm better off dead

Back off, back off bitch
Down in the gutter dyin' in the ditch
You better back off, back off bitch
Face of an angel with the love of a witch
Back off, back off bitch
Back off, back off bitch

Emotions ripped, gone on a binge
Life lipped, I said you're off the hinge
Tellin' lies of such fame and glory
I don't even want to hear your story

Back off, back off bitch
Down in the gutter dyin' in the ditch
You better back off, back off bitch
Face of an angel with the love of a witch
Back off, back off bitch
It's such a pity that you're such a bitch

Back off, back off bitch
It's time to burn-burn the witch
Back off, back off bitch
Back off, back off bitch
Back off, back off bitch
Bitch
Bitch
Bitch
Bitch
Hey wha'd'ya think he's tryin' to say there, anyway?
I think it's something each person's s'posed to take in their own special way
Fucking bitch

    General CommentHow was this song written about Stephanit Seymour? The first recorded demo was in 1986 before Axl even met her, and it was released in 1991 when they were dating. It applies to any ex girlfriend who was a bitch, I'm sure Axl's had many.

    General CommentThe first time I heard this record, I thought it was brilliant. I'd just broken up with my girlfriend, 'cause she was kept taking me for a ride, and screwing around. I couldn't resist the temptation of sending her a copy,and I haven't heard from her since. It defanatley had the desired effect.

    General CommentThis song kinda reminds me of my sixth grade english teacher. She had the looks of a porn-star, but was the definition of a bitch. Damn we all hated her! GN'F'R rules!!!
