Welles – Seventeen lyrics
[Verse 1]
White skin underwater
You know she's somebody's daughter
You know I'm somebody's daughter
I'm here tonight and I want her
I'm here tonight and I've got her

And it's cold in the water
I wonder if I should bother
You know she's somebody's daughter
When she gets old it'll haunt her
I'm here tonight, I have got her

[Chorus]
Seventeen
So unclean
Yeah

[Verse 2]
When I was young I was far-out
We can hold hands, we can make-out
Sit silent or cry out
You're pretty when you cop-out
Transgendered and washed out

And I can see past your short hair
Tellin' me that you don't care
He ain't here but here's somewhere
I'm all fucked up so I don't care
I know I'm in, but I'm out there

[Chorus]
Seventeen
So unclean
Ohh
Seventeen
So unclean

[Instrumental]

[Verse 3]
Will they ever forgive us?
All wet-lipped and guiltless?
In our heads we're like winners
Though we're just beginners
At some miserable game

I'll take you out to Ar-kansas
Where there's beer and molasses
We'll let the times fly on past us
The whole world, kiss our asses
Through red trees and white trashes

[Chorus]
Seventeen
So unclean
Ohh
Seventeen
So unclean

Oh my god

[Instrumental]
