"Little Bitch" as written by and Jerry Dammers....
One, two

One, two
If you ever hear a noise in the night
Your body starts to sweat
It shakes and shivers in fright
You go and sleep with your mother, she hates your guts
She knows that you love her so she holds you tight
All through the night, until the broad daylight
And when she doesn't come home you have to sleep alone
Then you wet your bed, and I think that's sad
For a girl of nineteen it's more than sad
It's obscene

One, two

And your girlfriend sweet little seventeen
She's got her layered hair, and her flared jeans
You know what that means?
She's just a little queen
She shares your London flat
She thinks that London's where it's at
Although it stinks and when it rains, you wear your hat
And your plum coloured PVC wet-look maxi-mac
You tie your ginger hair back in a bun
You're the ugliest creature
Under the sun

One, two, go

One, two
And you think it's about time that you died
And I agree, so you decide on suicide
You tried but you never quite carried it off
You only wanted to die in order to show off
And if you think you're gonna bleed all over me
You're even wronger than you'd normally be
And the only things you want to see are kitsch
The only thing you want to be is rich
Your little pink up-pointed nose begins to twitch
I know, you know, you're just a little bitch

One, two

    General CommentI wouldn't call this song misogynistic. It's certainly insulting to a specific type of woman but not, by any means, all women. I feel the same way about the kind of people that are being described in this song. The pathetic rich bitch girls who complain constantly about their lives despite the fact that they get everything handed to them and the only problem they have is the fact that they never learned to be even remotely self-sufficient. Especially attention whores who constantly talk about how depressed they are and how they want to kill themselves but never bother to do anything about it. I can't stand those people. If anyone thinks that description fits women in general or that this song is about women in general please, let's meet somewhere, and I'll introduce you to some real women. I'm not saying everyone needs to be happy 24/7 or that complaining about little things is always uncalled for, but there are definitely people who take it to excess, especially women (many seem to think being self-sufficient is somehow unfeminine) and that frustrates me off to no end. I ADORE this song.

    General CommentThis song got ripped off twice: The Intro was taken by The Dandy Warhols for 'Bohemian Like You' and the verses by Rancid for 'Timebomb'

    General CommentMuch though I love them it's all the more suprising that a band who were so oppossed to racism, and so outspoken in that opposition, could be so thoroughly misogynistic. Try and find a Specials song, 'The Boiler' apart, that takes a sympathetic or positive attitude to women. There's not many. Maybe feminism hadn't reached Cov.
    At a guess most likely Terry Hall's contribution than Dammers - and he's probably as much misanthrope as misogynist. So that's alright then!

    General CommentYou know, I never realised that 'Bohemian Like YOu' rip off until you mentioned it!

    The Ordinary Boys did a pretty decent cover of it too actually.
