Notes
It was Krist who convinced Kurt to cover this song which was going to end up on Nirvana's very first single. The song is written by Robby Van Leeuwen from the Dutch band Shocking Blue - a quite popular band in the seventies also known for their hit "Venus".
Original 7" begins with a 10 seconds sound collage from Montage of heck.

Lyrics
"Bleach" version

Would you believe me when I tell you
You are the queen of my heart
Please don't deceive me when I hurt you
Just ain't the way it seems

Can you feel my love buzz? (x4)

Would you believe me when I tell you
You are the queen of my heart
Please don't deceive me when I hurt you
Just ain't the way it seems

Can you feel my love buzz? (x4)

The original as it was performed by Shocking Blue

Would you believe me when I tell you
You are the king of my dreams.
Please don't decieve me when I hurt you
It just ain't the way it seems.

Can't you feel my love buzz? (x3)

I need you like a desert needs rain.
I would rather like to die.
Darling I hurt when I do not see you,
So spead your wings and fly.

Can't you feel my love buzz? (x3)
