"My World" as written by W. Axl Rose, Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, Izzy Stradlin, Darren A. Reed and Matt Sorum....
Your daddy works in porno
Now that mommy's not around
She used to love her heroin
But now she's underground
So you stay out late at night
And you do your dope for free
Drivin' your friends crazy
With your life's insanity

Well, well, well you just can't tell
Well, well, well my Michelle

Sowin' all your wild oats
In another's luxuries
Yesterday was Tuesday
Maybe Thursday you can sleep
But school starts much too early
And this hotel wasn't free
So party till your connection call
Honey I'll return the key

Well, well, well you just can't tell
Well, well, well my Michelle
Well, well, well you never can tell
Well, well, well my Michelle

Everyone needs love
You know that it's true
Someday you'll find someone
That'll fall in love with you
But oh the time it takes
When you're all alone
Someday you'll find someone
That you can call your own but till then ya better

Now you're clean and so discreet
I won't say a word
But most of all this song is true
Case you haven't heard
So c'mon and stop your cryin'
'Cause we both know money burns
Honey don't stop tryin' and you'll get what you deserve

Well, well, well you just can't tell
Well, well, well my Michelle
Well, well, well you never can tell
Well, well, well my Michelle

My my my Michele
My my my Michele
My my my Michele
My my my Michele
Michelle

    General Commentthis song absolutely SUCKS!!!! this album is magnificent - i'd rate all of the songs 5/5, and then you want a good finish, but then you have a legendary rock and roll band doing a crap rap song. well done Axl, you dip - shit!!!

    General CommentSome of you are reading too much into the line "Guess what I'm doing now". Listen closely and you'll hear it...

    Guess what I'm doing now = smoking a pipe (mj or crack...don't know which).

    General CommentIs 'sociopsychotic' even a real word or did Axl invent it? Anyway, I kinda like this 'song', even if it is just a minute-and-a-half industrial/techno/rap from a hard rock band.

    General CommentThis isn't as much of a song as it is a piece of art. There's so much going on: constant moaning, Axl's clearly insane/shroom fueled lyrics... I enjoy listening to it just to get a better feel for how Axl's brain works.

    General CommentThis is about a psycho. I hate this song, but it has a certain so-bad-it's-good appeal. I also like when he says "Oh my distorted smile," in a British voice, which reminds me of Alex from "A Clockwork Orange."

    Interesting to note the orgasmic sounds in the background are those from "Rocket Queen" as best as I can tell, anyway.

    General CommentI think that this song caused some tension in the band. Axl wanted to do nine inch nails stuff but every one else wanted to stick with what they were doing. It used to freak me out too
