Been A Son Lyrics - Nirvana



Review The Song (5)


She should have had more stayed away from friends
She should have had more time to spend
She should have died when she was born
She should have worn the crown of thorns

She should have been a son
She should have been a son
She should have been a son
She should have been a son

She should have stood out in the crowd
She should have made her mother proud
She should have fallen on her stance
She should have had another chance

(x2)
She should have been a son
She should have been a son
She should have been a son
She should have been a son

She should have stayed away from friends
She should have had more time to spend
She should have died when she was born
She should have worn the crown of thorns

She should have been a son
She should have been a son
She should have been a son
She should have been a son

Been a son Lyrics | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/4/14

Kurt wrote this song about a female lead singer for a punk band in seattle. She was killed in a horrible way due to her sexual orientation. He wrote this song to pay tribute to her and in hopes that her murder would not have been forgotten.Her murder is still unsolved. Unfortunately so is Kurt's

well the song was not writen about his child because frances was born much after he wrote this sons. I know most say the song was about his sister, and how his dad wanted a son. I think The song is about himself, and how his dad wanted a manly son who played sports, and shot guns. But instead he got kurt, a sensitive artist, who in his fathers eyes would never amount to anything.

Kurt wrote this song about his sister. Kurt thought his father was a stereotype. He was chauvanistic and always wanted Kim (cobains sister) to be a girl. His Dad also influenced a lot of his songs. When he was a child, Kurt would often do things that were not traditional male things just to spite his Dad.

I guess i have no clue | Reviewer: Mark | 7/18/07

I think Kurt wrote this song to be a generalization for the the women in the world who have felt pressure from their fathers. He was incredibly sensitive to the Womans lyb, thing. Thats my theory

whenever i think of this song I always think of Kut Cobain's child...I think he's reffering to her when he's singing this song. He wishes she'd been a son so what he does wouldn't hurt her as much.

Idk honestly...
