Lyrics

Sometimes I wish I was a pretty girl
So I could wreck myself in the shower
Sometimes I wish I was a pretty girl
So I could wreck myself in the shower

Been on my own so long
I can't tell left from wrong
Bloody red bats squelching offal
Foaming mutilations in the kiss of death

Sometimes I wish I was a pretty girl
So I could wreck myself in the shower
Sometimes I wish I was a pretty girl
So I could wreck myself in the shower

Been on my own all night
I can't tell left from right
Baby come back, give me fever
Cauterize this passion with a blood red kiss

Sometimes I wish I was a pretty girl
So I could wreck myself in the shower
Sometimes I wish I was a pretty girl
So I could ____/stab myself in the shower
Sometimes I wish I was a
So I could

<Alternates>
Don't look so embarrassed, it's a family trait   16a

Sometimes I   23a
