She's not a girl who misses much
She's well acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand
Like a lizard on a window pane
The man in the crowd with the multicolored mirrors
On his hobnailed boots
Lying with his eyes while his hands
Working over time
A soap impression of his wife which he ate
And donated to the Nation's Trust
I need a fix cause I'm going down
Down to the bitch that I left uptown
I need a fix cause I'm going down
Mother Superior jumped the gun
Mother Superior jumped the gun
Happiness is a warm gun
Happiness is a warm gun
When I hold you in my arms
And I feel my finger on your trigger
I know that nobody can do me no harm
Happiness is a warm gun, mama
Happiness is a warm gun

    I liked it. The Beatles rock and Alanis could never try her even if Paul and Ringo helped her out, but I still like it. She probably shouldn't perform it in public so much though. Maybe while she's in the shower she can pretend to be John.

    Lolz!

    I wasn't able to hear this song. With Alanis performing, of course. I kind of agree, you know, that other artists should not copy the songs of The Beatles, but that just shows that they love The Beatles, don't they? I think they should just say, "Oh! I love The Beatles so, so much! I wish I could be like them, but I can't do it!"

    Ha.Ha.Ha.

    pJ ;P
