And if you save yourself you will make him happy
He'll keep you in a jar and you'll think you're happy
He'll give you breathing holes and you'll think you're happy
He'll cover you with grass and you'll think you're happy
Now...

You're in a laundry room
You're in a laundry room
Conclusion came to you
Aaah

And if you cut yourself you will think you're happy
He'll keep you in a jar and you'll make him happy
He'll give you breathing holes then you'll think you're happy
He'll cover you with grass then you'll think you're happy
Now...

You're in a laundry room
You're in a laundry room
Conclusion came to you
Aaah

You're in a laundry room
You're in a laundry room
Conclusion came to you
Aaah

And if you fool yourself you will make him happy
He'll keep you in a jar and you'll think you're happy
He'll give you breathing holes and you'll think you're happy
You'll wallow in your shit then you'll think you're happy
Aaaahh

You're in a laundry room
You're in a laundry room
You're in a laundry room
Conclusion came to you
Aah

    The original song of this was called Sad and it had very similar lyrics to the the song but his hook was the same as sappy but his words was different but it was about god trapping him and saving his soul but ever sense he remade the song it sounds like it is about a pet he might of changed it because the studio might of wanted to change it and i know studios did that to nirvana songs before such as the song Stay Away which was changed cause the song was going to be called Pay to play and i was about gambling then it was changed to staying away from stuff so the same thing might of happened to the song Sappy the song Sad was a song that Kurt Cobain wrote in 1988 then he changed it to Sappy in 1989 because he was going to put as a song in his album Bleach but which he didn't do so for some reason it became a rare track.

    Possibly about his pet rat a while back that he accidentally killed. Or his turtle(s), but he kept them in a bath tub in the middle of the "house" he lived in. He uses those times to express his isolation, and make a joke of it at the same time.

    Reminds me of an ex-girlfriend that's sappy as all get up. Always trying to reel me back in with desperately over sentimental recollections, but ultimately making me think; ungh, what a sap! I like her friendship when she's not being sappy, but damn, move on with life.

    Kurt wrote this song about his pet turtle. It doesn't really have any special meaning, even though people think it's about religion.
