Pearl Jam – Swallow My Pride lyrics

She looked at me with dignity said
"There's something you got to see if you know we're headed for war this country's prouder than ever before yes there's a spirit in the air we're more American than anywhere"
Well I just smiled 'cause I could tell this little girl's going to Hell
Now I wouldn't mind if you swallowed my pride
Would make me feel alright deep inside feel alright
All the warmth in her heart can't keep my blood from running cold
Keep my blood from running cold
First I fell for her looks now I just wanna go for the throat
I tried to tell her a hundred times this little girl didn't understand at all
Pride comes before a fall
Now I wouldn't mind if you swallowed my pride
Make me feel alright deep inside feel alright Ohh
This ain't the Garden of Eden
This ain't the summer of love
Things ain't what they used to be
There ain't no angels above
Whoa
Ain't the Garden of Eden
Ain't no angels above
Things ain't what they used to be
This ain't the summer of love
