How Dirty Girls Get Clean
by Hole

Album: Nobody's Daughter (2010)
  • I've lost my mind yeah, I've lost control
    I've the lost the feeling in my arms, I'm a lost soul
    Make the most of me baby, oh don't spit me out
    This is how dirty girls get clean, don't leave me now

    Listen to her lust, yeah, hear her disgrace
    Listen to the fragile things as they all break
    Watch from the covers, the comfort of your home
    Through the ice and sleet baby, oh down down we go

    What angry star runs your devil heart?
    What angry star runs your devil heart?
    Oh oh, how'd you get so mean?
    This is the only way d-dirty girls stay clean

    And I wanted you like no one before
    Said you're coming back for me honey
    This is how hell forms
    This is how a storm begins

    This is how trouble's born
    Listen to sleep
    Listen to her wail
    You've given birth to terrible things, watch them unveil

    Listen to my torment
    Listen to my pain
    Please come on back here baby, let me try again
    What angry star runs your devil heart?

    What angry star runs your devil heart?
    Oh oh, how'd you get so mean?
    This is the only way d-dirty girls stay clean
    And the rain it poured down

    And the wind it moaned
    And she wrapped her legs around him
    And she's got no home
    And he's looking at me, oh god he looks so dumb

    What are you staring at? This is how it's done
    I will define for you, the meaning of greed
    While you were vanishing, this dirty girl got clean
    What angry star runs your devil heart?

    What angry star runs your devil heart?
    Oh oh, how'd you get so mean?
    This is the only way d-dirty girls stay clean
    Oh oh, how'd you get so mean?

    This is the only way d-dirty girls stay clean
    Oh oh, how'd you get so mean?
    This is the only way d-dirty girls stay clean
