Floyd The Barber

  • Bell on door clanks, come on in
    Floyd observes my hairy chin
    Sit down chair, don't be afraid
    Steamed hot towel on my face

    I'm ashamed
    I'm ashamed
    I'm ashamed

    Barney ties me to the chair
    I can't see, I'm really scared
    Floyd breathes hard, I hear a zip
    Pee-pee pressed against my lips

    I'm ashamed
    I'm ashamed
    I'm ashamed

    I sense others in the room
    Opie, Aunt Bee, I presume
    They take turns and cut me up
    I die smothered in Andy's clutch

    I'm ashamed
    I'm ashamed
    I'm ashamed Writer/s: Kurt Cobain

  • Karl from Ingatestone, United Kingdomi am a massive Nirvana fan and this song is a true amazing classic.
  • Lin-young from Soho, NyActually the character he got was for the andy griffen show yepp this song is soo disturbing but it makesyou think about people
  • Don't Have A Mind from Pleasure Town - SerbiaActually the final line is 'I die smothered in Andy's clutch'.In accordance with the Kurt Cobain 'Journals' book.
  • Micheal from Sunshine Coast, AustraliaFoolish people, the final line is not 'I die smothered in Andy's butt'

    It is..

    'I die smothered in Aunt Bea's Muff' (meaning vagina)

    Rape, torture and lots of nasty stuff going on here, go away and really listen closely
  • Jeff from La Pine, Orit was either Sifting or Scoff i cant remember but one of those was the song in which Kurdt expressed his feelings about his parents divorce and being shunnted from his mother.
    Oh, and the last verse is:
    i sense others in the room,
    Opey, Aunt Bee I presume,
    They take turns in cut me up,
    I died smothered in Andy's butt.

    The version from Bleach sounds so much better than the live version and is not as slurred.
  • Ed from Chodania, Fli think this song migght be about sexual harrasment/rape? because of the lines "pee pee pressed against my lips" and "i die smothered in andy's butt" anyone else feel the same way?
  • Seph from Pittsburgh, PaI think this song this song is about self - mutilation.
  • Joe from Idiotville, KyGreat song. Me and my band play it every time we get together.
  • Jordan from Shokan, Nyi like the part where they talk about the guy named floyd. floyd is good.
  • Zac from Olive Bridge, Nyi find this song rather awsome, its definately on my top 10 nirvana songs
  • Marlee from Nova Scotia, CanadaI think this song is kurt's metaphorical way of expressing his feelings about his parent's divorce, and the feeling of being all alone and afraid.
  • Thral from Seatle, Wai love this song reminds me of my old town the midle of nowhere virgina lol
  • Matt from Millbrae, Cavery cool song...ive only heard the live version and its still really good, though i cant understand what he says in the last verse because he screams so loud
  • Tourette from Aberdeen, Wathis song describes aberdeen perfactly. it discribes the rot of subsurface paranoia and psycosis in the facade of small town usa
