Mrs. Butterworth Lyrics - Nirvana

Review The Song (12)



My life is shit
Shit
My life is bogus
Ball
My life is trite
Cry
My life is hell
Hell

I'm gonna die
Start a new union
I'm going to die
Help my libido
I'm gonna die
Start a new union
I'm going to die
Who wants to stay

sponsored links
Your life is shit
Shit
Your life is strange
And insane
Your life is lame, a type of crap
Your life is jail
Clam

I'm gonna die
Start a new union
I'm gonna help out my libido
I'm gonna die
Start a new union
I'm going to hell
To help my libido
I'm gonna die
Start a new union
I'm going to hell
To help my libido
I'm gonna die
Start a new union
I'm gonna die
Who wants to stay

Your life is shit

I'ma open myself up a flea market
I'ma open myself up a flea market
And you're gonna wish that you did
Might retire on the profits
First off
I'ma empty out all of my Mrs. Butterworth jars
I'ma put 'em on a shelf with my 800 dollar a month tax free Century 21, shop
And then I am going to put my Mrs. Butterworth syrup jars on the shelf
Next to all the commemorative fast food chain glasses and cups I've accumulated over the past 62 years
Then I'm going to get some plywood
I'm going to get some plywood and cut them up into two by two piece squares
Then I'm going to get some burlap and I'm going to cut them into two by two piece squares and then I'm going to put them onto the pieces of plywood
And then I'm going to go to the beach
I'm going to go to the beach and I'm gonna collect some shells and driftwood
And then I'm gonna take the shells and driftwood and glue them onto the plywood and burlap
And sell 'em for lots of money
People will be paying top dollar for my kids new used new toys and clothing
Then maybe someday I can get rid of that piss stained mattress I've been sleeping on..."

I'm gonna die
Start a new union
I'm gonna try
to help my libido
I'm gonna die
We'll start a new union
I'm going to die
Wear my libido
I'm going to die
We'll start a new union
I'm going to die
Wear my libido
I'm going to die
We'll start a new union
I'm going to die
Who wants to stay

You dumb fucks | Reviewer: Peter | 7/28/14

This is not a song about himself, he's obviously mocking a certain type of person, taking the role of a miserable, probably middle-aged man whose life is so dull he's collecting worthless fast food glasses and talking about starting a business but never doing it. Which all sounds somewhat like a normal person you already know in your life, but Kurt makes it sound ridiculous which shows how he would have never have been able to stand living that type of life himself

great song | Reviewer: evil mike | 2/29/12

This is a great song. I have heard of it for years but never actually heard it until I got the "with the lights out" box set. I have heard mixed reviews of that box set ranging from great to horrible. As a musician my band records everything we do because you never know when you're gonna play a great take of a song. And that's what most of the tracks sound like. My opinion is I love everything on this box set. I am a true Nirvana fan and a lot of the music I write is influenced by theirs. With all the unreleased tracks on the box set they had atleast 2 great full length albums to make. 2 of my personal favorites are Curmudgeon & Oh the guilt. RIP Kurt Cobain.

Kids these days... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/27/11

Anybody who uses the term "Owns" to describe a song by Nirvana is part of the reason the band is no longer with us...

And anybody trying to place deep meaning into the lyrics...let us not forget the role Heroin played in his live and his song writing...Take t for what it is and stop trying to put meaning where it doesn't belong...

Jurnal | Reviewer: Cas | 11/16/09

I didn't read his journals becouse his journal was named: Don't read this when I'm gone, So I'm not going to. I've read Heavier Than Heaven and Come As You Are. And I'm probetly going to buy his journals but not read them out of respect.

Swap meet | Reviewer: Raso | 10/17/09

This song reminds me so much of swap meet from bleach. The intro guitar riff is simular and the lyrics in the spoken part about selling burlap, driftwood and shells. I think the vocals in the verses in this song could've been better, but still it's a great song.

So many have this all wrong... | Reviewer: Biscuit | 10/26/07

If any of you that are trying to interpret this song had read Kurt Cobain's journals, you'd know that this wasn't about him. It's about Krist.

kickass | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/1/07

i fuckin love kurt cobain and this song kicks ass i couldnt stop laughing the first time i heard it the talking part haha anyways awesome song

Awesome | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/11/07

This song owns. In the refrain it's so jammin'. I love the spoken part too :). The first time I heard it I was like.... "WTF?" but then I laughed.

I do like that song ... | Reviewer: Vedgos (K.D.C.'s Fan) | 6/6/07

Well ... I think that Kurt was writing bout many important and non important things ... but well. that guy is a God and will remain as a God for me and all of those forgotten fans here.

­­*I'm gonna die to start a new union*
Here's what he says and done.
He died ... and he has gave us a new hope on his last breath.
His message was: Keep your eyes open, only you can handle your futur. Even if your life is a shit.

Complete tools | Reviewer: Andrew | 3/1/07

Enjoy the song, I doubt every song Kurt wrote was about his life. Maybe it was, maybe it wasn't, a song is whatever you make of it.

dumb ass | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/29/06

r u thick or what? u didnt exactly knw how Kurt was feelin, i mean, on a number of diff occasions he said he was happy ect. i mean he had a kid whom he loved to bits-shame about the choice of mother-she would do the world a favour if she had an overdose tomorrow ( and revealed all the unanswered questions about Kurts death ) GOD i hate her

Total Kurt | Reviewer: Elizabeth | 1/4/05

this song is pratically kurt's life "your life is a shit" hello he hated his life and the whole flea market thing is total hick but hey that was kurt. in this song he proves his point by repeating himself numerous times.
