------------------------ by the Vaselines


Jesus don't want me for a sunbeam
'cause sunbeams are not made like me
(Eugene)
And don't expect me to cry
For all the reasons you had to die
Don't ever ask your love of me.

Don't expect me to cry
(chorus: Frances and Eugene)
Don't expect me to lie
Don't expect me to die for thee.

'cause sunbeams are not made like me
(Eugene)
Oh, Jesus don't want me for a sunbeam
And don't expect me to cry
For all the reasons you had to die
Don't ever ask your love of me.

(repeat)
Additional notes:



This song was recorded by Nirvana on the Unplugged album.



Molly's Lips
She said
(Frances; Eugene on backup vocals)
She'd take me anyway
She'd take me everyway

As long as she stays with me.
She said
She'd take me everywhere
She'd take me anywhere
As long as I'm good and clean
(chorus)

Kiss kiss
Molly's lips
Molly's lips
Kiss kiss
Kiss kiss
Molly's lips
Kiss kiss
Molly's Lips
