"You Could Be Mine" as written by W. Axl Rose, Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, Izzy Stradlin, Darren A. Reed and Matt Sorum....
I'm a cold heartbreaker
Fit ta burn and I'll rip your heart in two
And I'll leave you lyin' on the bed
I'll be out the door before you wake
It's nuthin' new to you
'Cause I think we've seen that movie too

'Cause you could be mine
But you're way out of line
With your bitch slap rappin'
And your cocaine tongue
You get nuthin' done
I said you could be mine

Now holidays come and then they go
It's nothin' new today
Collect another memory
When I come home late at night
Don't ask me where I've been
Just count your stars I'm home again

'Cause you could be mine
But you're way out of line
With your bitch slap rappin'
And your cocaine tongue
You get nuthin' done
I said you could be mine
You could be mine
You could be mine
You could be mine
You could be mine
You could be mine, mine, mine, mine

You've gone sketchin' too many times
Why don't you give it a rest
Why
Must you find
Another reason to cry

While you're breakin' down my back n'
I been rackin' out my brain
It don't matter how we make it
'Cause it always ends the same
You can push it for more mileage
But your flaps are wearin' thin
And I could sleep on it 'til mornin'
But this nightmare never ends
Don't forget to call my lawyers
With ridiculous demands
An you can take the pity so far
But it's more than I can stand
'Cause this couchtrip's gettin' older
Tell me how long has it been
'Cause five years is forever
And you haven't grown up yet

You could be mine
But you're way out of line
With your bitch slap rappin'
And your cocaine tongue
You get nuthin' done
I said you could be
You should be
You could be mine
You could be mine
You could be mine
You could be mine
You could be mine
You could be mine
You could be mine
You could be mine
You could be mine

    General Comment"Anyone know what "bitch slap rappin" means?"

    Gossiping. Rapping = Talking, bitch slap = putting down other women

    General CommentElton John wrote the line "we've seen that movie, too" and that is why he is credited.

    General Commentthe song was actually written around the appetite days but wasnt put on the album. the phrase "with your bitch slap rappin and your cocaine tongue" are in the inside cover of appetite as a foreshadow of things to come

    General CommentYou could be mine, but you are a cold hearted cocaine using bitch.

    That basically sums the song up!

    General CommentT2 was the main reason i started liking them, now i love them baby! Axls voice is so good in this especially singing the bit 'why must you find another reason to cry'. And the solo is the best!
