                [Intro]

F

F Em F E5#4

[Verse 1]

     

                       F      

When I'm feeling tired,

F E5#4

She puts food through the door,

F E5#4                      F

I crawl towards the crack of light,

F     E5#4

Sometimes I can't find my way.

F F   E5#4            F

Newspapers spread around,

F  E5#4

Soaking all that they can.

F F E5#4              F

A cleaning is due again,

F  E5#4             F F

A good hosing down!

[Bridge 1]

E5#4

[Pre-Chorus 1]

        E5#4               E5#4 

The lady    who I feel maternal love for

     E5#4           E5#4

Cannot   look me in the eyes,

       E5#4           E5#4 

But I see hers and they are blue

            E5#4             E5#4

And they cock and twist and masturbate.

[Chorus 1]

F5 F#5 G5 G#5 B5 Bb5      F5 F#5 G5 G#5 B5 Bb5

Why?                I said              so!   I said  

F5 F#5 G5 G#5 B5 Bb5       F5 F#5 G5 G#5 B5 Bb5

              so!    I said              so!   Nirvana.

G#5 G5       B5 Bb5        G#5 G5        B5 Bb5        G#5 G5 

      Nirvana.     Nirvana.      Nirvana.      Nirvana.      Nirvana.

F#5 F#m  F#5 F#m

[Verse 2]

F F E5#4                   F

Black windows of paint.

F  E5#4

I scratched with my nails.

F F    E5#4          F

I see others just like me.

F E5#4

Why do they not try to escape?

F F E5#4               F

They bring out the older ones,

F E5#4

They point in my way.

F F  E5#4                  F

They come with there flashing lights

F       E5#4             F F

And take my family away.

[Bridge 2]

E5#4

[Pre-Chorus 2]

        E5#4        E5#4    

And very    later I have learned

      E5#4                   E5#4    

To accept some friends of ridicule

        E5#4                E5#4           

My whole    existence is for    your amusement

       E5#4              E5#4 

And that   is why I'm here   with you.

[Chorus 2]

F5 F#5 G5 G#5 B5 Bb5       F5 F#5 G5 G#5 B5 Bb5  

                    To take                    me with 

F5 F#5 G5 G#5 B5 Bb5          F5 F#5 G5 G#5 B5 Bb5 

                    your life.                    Nirvana.

G#5 G5        B5 Bb5        G#5 G5        B5 Bb5 

      Nirvana.      Nirvana.      Nirvana.      Nirvana.

G#5 G5        B5 Bb5        G#5 G5        B5 Bb5 

      Nirvana.      Nirvana.      Nirvana.
