From the recording U Stink But I Love You

In cart Not available Out of stock

What seems like an unlikely collaboration was completely natural for world artist and bouzouki master, Beth Patterson and horror rockers, Tomb of Nick Cage. Friends for decades with a shared love of dark humor and rock 'n' roll, Beth crafted the idea to do a cover of "U Stink But I Love You" and it was instant lightning.

The song originally appears on "Billy and the Boingers Bootleg" in the collection of the comic strip series Bloom County by Berkeley Breathed, published in 1987. Prior to publication, Breathed announced a contest to solicit original song submissions as if written by or for the in-comic heavy metal rock group, "Billy and the Boingers." The second-place winner, "U-Stink-But-I-♥-U," was on the B-side. "U-Stink-But-I-♥-U" was performed by New Jersey hardcore band Mucky Pup.

Lyrics

I hate the way you act
And I hate the way you smell
I hate the way you look girl
'Cause you just look like hell

You make me sick, way-o, way-o
You make me sick
You really stink girl
You make me sick, way-o, way-o
You make me sick
But I love you

I hate your polyester pant suits
And your greasy hair
And that stuff between your braces
And your hairy derriere

You make me sick, way-o, way-o
You make me sick
You really stink girl
You make me sick, way-o, way-o
You make me sick
But I love you

When I got you in my back seat
And I tried to make my move
I had to roll down all the windows
To keep my face from turning blue

You make me sick, way-o, way-o
You make me sick
You really stink girl
You make me sick, way-o, way-o
You make me sick
But I love you
