Lyrics and chords Nirvana Sliver by Kurt Cobain:
Mom and Dad went to a show
They dropped me off at Grandpa Joe’s
I kicked and screamed,
“Please don’t go”

Gramma take me home (8x)

I had to eat my dinner there
Mashed potatoes and stuff that I
Couldn’t chew my meat too good


They said if I couldn’t stop cryin’
To go outside and rot and die (?)
That’s what I did, I kicked the door


After dinner I had ice cream
I fell asleep and watched TV
I woke up in my mother’s arms

Chorus (20x)
