The Lyrics

Based on several different misinterpretations of the "I've Got a New Complaint" line from the song.
She eyes me like a singer when I am weak
I've been mistaken for Cobain for a week
I was complimented being asked to her lap
But now she asks me to sing Nirvana I say SHUT YOUR TRAP!

Hey
Wait
I am not Kurt Cobain
I never O'D'ed on depression and dread!
Hey!
Wait!
I am not Kurt Cobain
I'm alive and you know that he is dead!
Hey
Wait
I am not Kurt Cobain
And I can't sing, Please get that in your head!

Her pleas to make me join those foo fighters is all wet
I'd almost like to do a Cobain, but I'm not there yet
Why can't she get a new passion, maybe Beastie Boys or Verve,
All those requests for Teen Spirit have gotten on my nerve

Hey!
Wait!
I am not Kurt Cobain,
But if you persist I'll be as depressed as him,
Hey!
Wait!
I am not Kurt Cobain!
Are you dense, or retarded or just dim,
Hey!
Wait!
I am not Kurt Cobain!
Maybe I'll just call you Aaliyah on a whim,
on a whim,
on a whim!

She eyes me like a singer when I am weak
I've been mistaken for that dead guy for a week
I was complimented being asked to her lap
But now she asks me to sing Nirvana I say SHUT YOUR TRAP!

Hey
Wait
I am not Kurt Cobain
I never O'D'ed on depression and dread!
Hey!
Wait!
I am not Kurt Cobain
I'm alive and you know that he is dead!
Hey
Wait
I am not Kurt Cobain
And I can't sing, Please get that in your head!
In your Head!
In your Head!
In your Head!
