"Son of a Gun" as written by Eugene Kelly and Frances Mckee....
Up, up, up and down
Turn, turn, turn around
Round, round, round about
And over again

Gun, gun, son of a gun
You are the only one
Makes any difference to what I say

The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

Up, up, up and down
Turn, turn, turn around
Round, round, round about
And over again

Gun, gun, son of a gun
You are the only one
Makes any difference to what I say

The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

Up, up, up and down
Turn, turn, turn around
Round, round, round about
And over again

Gun, gun, son of a gun
You are the only one
Makes any difference to what I say

The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

    General CommentOk, so I know this isn't the real meaning of the song but this is what I get out of it:

    When I was a little kid I had a friend named Connor and like me he was Autistic, though a lot more so then me so he didn't really talk.
    Well if you don't know, many people with Autism do something called "stimming" (self-stimulation)
    in other words they repeat a particular movement to stimulate their senses or to calm down (for example I rock back and forth).

    Anyways, the stimming Connor would do was just like the chorus of the song; he would jump up and down spinning around while swinging his arms.

    So whenever I heard this song (original or Nirvana cover) that's what it makes me think of, since the first version I heard was Nirvana's when I was a kid I'm putting it here.

    General CommentWell, is it a cover now or what? If it wasn't i'd guess the reason for kurt to have a happy tune to the song is because he means it ironical.

    Guns were always in his life, his stepfather had guns, and later he had guns, every gun for one reportet or someone he hated, because they slways wrote shit about him in articles...... so maybe he thought he was a son of a gun.

    General CommentI'm sure you think he named Frances after Frances Farmer but what Blackstar said is true. Kurt gave Frances the middle name Bean because that's what she looked like in the ultra sound photo things.

    BTW
    I love this song. I think it's their best cover.
