"In Utero" version (Not Official Lyrics)

It hurts when you have to press that dull little thing
that you're only supposed to use once and then discard
where do you put it? in the garbage can
my honest friend, my shyness, pet her flow

She's only been five months late,
even though we haven't had sex for a week
A mil a day, a meal, I say
And my heart's made my....

Somebody else already used the word aurora borealis
She was tied up in chains, and Sam had helped her in the freezer

She's only five weeks late,
and I haven't had a date forever...

Wish I had more...more opportunity,
more chances to remember some things
so I couldn't have so much pressure on my...
on my...on my, um...ah, on


We'd have so much more diversity
and so much more input,
so much more creative flow
if we had someone in school, a (GIT)...

Ha!...Come on, Dave, think of one...
[Dave:]Girls In Trouble
It should be GIC, Geeks With Charvels

Fuck, man, this is a waste of time
Ha-ha-ha... ha-ha-ha
One more solo?


You're personally responsible for...
the entire be washed away.... if gallons of, um, rubbing alcohol
flowed through the strip and were set on fire

It didn't just singe the hair, it made it straight

And then Perry Ellis came along with his broom
and he...he erected a beautiful city...
a city of stars
