  • Song Lyrics:
    What is this song all about?
    Can't figure any lyrics out
    How do the words to it go?
    I wish you'd tell me, I don't know
    Don't know, don't know, don't know, oh no
    Don't know, don't know, don't know...

    Now I'm mumblin' and I'm screamin'
    And I don't know what I'm singin'
    Crank the volume, ears are bleedin'
    I still don't know what I'm singin'
    We're so loud and incoherent
    Boy, this oughta bug your parents
    Yeah

    It's unintel-ligible
    I just can't get it through my skull
    It's hard to bargle nawdle zouss
    With all these marbles in my mouth
    Don't know, don't know, don't know, oh no
    Don't know, don't know, don't know...

    Well, we don't sound like Madonna
    Here we are now, we're Nirvana
    Sing distinctly? We don't wanna
    Buy our album, we're Nirvana
    A garage band from Seattle
    Well, it sure beats raising cattle
    Yeah

    And I forgot the next verse
    Oh well, I guess it pays to rehearse
    The lyric sheet's so hard to find
    What are the words? Oh, nevermind
    Don't know, don't know, don't know, oh no
    Don't know, don't know, don't know...

    Well, I'm yellin' and we're playin'
    But I don't know what I'm sayin'
    What's the message I'm conveyin'?
    Can you tell me what I'm sayin'?
    So have you got some idea?
    Didn't think so -- Well, I'll see ya
    Sayonara, sayonara
    Ayonawa, odinawa
    Odinaya, yodinaya
    Yaddayadda, yaaahyaaah
    Ayaaaaaah!
    (Sonic SBL)
