The Lyrics

Yes, my fifth misheard lyrics parody from Nirvana! If the harp from Jack and the Beanstalk were Kurt Cobain (inspired by an Elvis harp that I saw in one of my dad's old comic books), this is what he'd sing. Some of the real lyrics ("Hey! Wait!," "your priceless advice" and "your advice") are in the song, and the rest are misheard -- or, as they say in the movies, TV, video games, books, you name it, the rest is history.
She asks me like a Fascist when I am weak
I've been locked inside your Harp-Shaped box for weeks
I've been drawn into your Magneton* pin trap
I ask "Why could Dick York** answer?" when you turn back (Alt:... when you turn black)

Hey! Wait! I'm not of Clouseau fame***
Forever and ever your priceless advice
Hey! Wait! I've got a new c** stain
Forever and ever your priceless advice
Hey! Wait! I've got a nuke 'em plane
Forever and ever your priceless advice
Your advice

Dedede**** did not give a f*** at none, not just yet
Caught myself on angel, heron, maybe bread
Croton-Harmon***** of your highness I've left Brak******
Throw down your umbrella canoe so I can climb a ride back

Hey! Wait! I've got a nude Cobain*******
Forever and ever your priceless advice
Hey! Wait! I've got a riff to play
Forever and ever your priceless advice
Hey! Wait! I've got a rib complaint
Forever and ever your priceless advice
Your advice

(Guitar solo)

She axed me like a fasces******** when I am weak
I've been locked inside your Harp-Shaped box for weeks
I've been drawn into your Magneto********* p*** trap
I wish I could leech your answer when you turn back (Alt:... when you turn black)

Hey! Wait! My name is Kurt Cobain**********
Forever and ever your priceless advice
Hey! Wait! I've got a new Cobain***********
Forever and ever your priceless advice
Hey! Wait! I've got a new complaint************
Forever and ever your priceless advice
Your advice
Your advice
Your advice
*Magneton is a Pokémon that would be heard rather than "magnet tar pit trap"**Dick York was the original Darrin on Bewitched. He left the show in 1969 when he broke his back. He died before this song came out. My mom often confuses him with Dick Sargent, who replaced him.***I thought Kurt said here that he was not Peter Sellers, the man famed for playing Inspector Clouseau.****The big enemy in the Kirby games, King Dedede is King of Dreamland.*****Croton-Harmon is a train station between Poughkeepsie and New York City.******Brak is one of the "good" enemies from Space Ghost.*******Have you ever imagined Kurt Cobain being naked when he wrote this song?********For those who don't get this (and I believe few of you do), a fasces often contains an axe that sticks out.*********Magneto is a Marvel supervillain who can control magnetism... and who might also be heard instead of "magnet tar pit trap" as well.**********Some people believe Kurt refers to himself in the chorus.***********Others believe he refers to his baby daughter, Frances Bean, as the "New Cobain."************Yes, these lyrics are the REAL ones.
