Stay Away Lyrics

[Verse 1: Kurt Cobain]
Monkey see, monkey do (I don't know why)
Rather be dead than cool (I don't know why)
Every line ends in rhyme (I don't know why)
Less is more, love is blind (I don't know why)

[Chorus: Kurt Cobain]
Stay
Stay away
Stay away
Stay away

[Verse 2: Kurt Cobain]
Give an inch, take a smile (I don't know why)
Fashion sh!ts, fashion style (I don't know why)
Blow it out, keep it in (I don't know why)
Have to have poison skin (I don't know why)

[Chorus: Kurt Cobain]
Stay
Stay away
Stay away
Stay away

[Post-Chorus: Kurt Cobain]
(I don't know why)
(I don't know why)

[Chorus: Kurt Cobain]
Stay
Stay away
Stay away
Stay away

[Repeat-Verse 1: Kurt Cobain]
Monkey see, monkey do (I don't know why)
Rather be dead than cool (I don't know why)
Every line ends in rhyme (I don't know why)
Less is more, love is blind (I don't know why)

[Chorus: Kurt Cobain]
Stay
Stay away
Stay away
Stay away

[Post-Chorus: Kurt Cobain]
(I don't know why)
(I don't know why)

Stay
Stay away
Stay away
Stay away

Yeah!
Stay away
Stay away
Stay away

God is gay
