Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit

Inglés

Smells Like Teen Spirit

Load up on guns
and bring your friends
It's fun to lose and to pretend
She's over bored and self-assured
Oh no, I know a dirty word
 
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello
 
With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulato!
An albino!
A mosquito!
My libido!
Yeah!
 
I'm worse at what I do best
And for this gift, I feel blessed
Our little group has always been
And always will until the end
 
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello
 
With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulato!
An albino!
A mosquito!
My libido!
Yeah!
 
(Solo)
 
And I forget just why I taste -
Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile
I found it hard, it's hard to find
Oh well, whatever, nevermind
 
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, how low, how low?
Hello, hello, hello
 
With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulato!
An albino!
A mosquito!
My libido!
 
A denial! (x9)

This part is wrong: "overboard self assured >>> overbored, self assured" Can any editor fix it? Thanks.

Do you mean it should be "She's over-bored and self-assured"? That seemed to be in many other versions of these lyrics, but of course there are always other ones where the line is slightly different.

Would it be possible to know why the current version is wrong?
Anyone?

probono - I've been a fan of Nirvana's work for over 18 years now, what I can say is that I've researched a lot about them, their history, lyrics/song meanings and read many articles/biographies/books about them and I even wrote a couple of college articles/works about Kurt and his life/career - he's voice and lyrics are hard to understand, that's for sure, but this song, and that part specifically, is about his ex-gf Tobi Vail, who was always extremely bored but also a self-assured person - I'm 100% sure he says "over-bored/over bored/overbored and self-assured (urban dictionary states overbored as slang, and I guess it's minimal but I forgot the hyphen unintentionally though) I'm not going to emphasize my knowledge of Nirvana further here because is not like I have a degree on it, it's just a (favorite) band I've really dedicated quite some time learning about, but if there's one place in the internet where you can find the right lyrics is this site here: http://www.nirvanaclub.com/ It's one of the oldest (if not the oldest) site dedicated to Nirvana, and these guys really have a passion for the band and only publish confirmed content. "Lyrics for all the songs on their officially released albums are available... This section does not offer lyrics for covers performed live, except if the song appears on an official release" Check Lyrics > Nevermind > Smells - that's the version from Nevermind - Later Kurt would sing "tribe" instead of "group" and occasionally changed the lyrics at will in concerts, but this is the one from the album and the right one to be here. =]

Indeed it was shallow - I thought to myself "Such a famous and rather old song and no one here saw that?" I didn't realize there were many people understanding "overboard" and I just thought it was a simple error - my bad.

However, you asked why, for your information, the site DIDN'T come to mind at first, I was thinking about other sources (e.g DVD footage with subtitles), that's why, and just started telling my personal history as I'm sure it could be taken in consideration - It matters to me, it's absolutely IRRELEVANT if it doesn't for you, and I think you are being offensive towards me, since the other thread, where I listed 5 personal opinions, and all you did was complaining about one that you thought I was being bossy (to hell the other four), when I clearly wasn't. There are better way of pointing things: "Hey fella, that way you're sounding like you're giving an order, is that your intention?" "Hey my question was simple, no need for the big text buddy! I'd like to know the reason behind your request - the link was enough, thanks :)" and I would still realize my errors and refrain from repeating them. If that's how your attitude is towards people here, I'd rather (and gladly) not participate in any discussion/thread in the future if you are in. Best regards.

I'd be interested in your opinion on "I know a dirty word". It seems pretty random here (since everybody knows many dirty words), unless it's understood as "I know, (that's) a dirty word", either referring to "overbored" or "self-assured". I.e. in the sense of "I know I'm not supposed to use that word as people will get upset". I've always understood it that way.

Fary    Mié, 03/06/2015 - 17:49

I corrected that one line. Is there anything else that's wrong?

Fary    Jue, 04/06/2015 - 11:07

No problem! I didn't notice any other bigger differences, unless I missed something, but hopefully it's correct now.

Thanks Fary for your help.
