Due to Cobain's reluctance to record multiple takes, Vig claims he often had to trick Cobain by falsely claiming that certain parts were not recorded correctly or were out of tune, and needed to be recorded again. Cobain recorded three vocal takes, with all three takes being used throughout the recording. Sound engineer Andy Wallace added delay to these sounds to complete the effect.

Nirvana Lyrics. One baby to another says I'm lucky to have met you I don't care what you think Unless it is about me It is now my duty to completely drain you I travel through a tube And end up in your infection Chew your meat for you Pass it back and forth In a passionate kiss From my mouth to yours I like you With eyes so dilated I've become your pupil You've taught me everything Without a poison apple The water is so yellow, I'm a healthy student Indebted and so grateful Vacuum out the fluids Chew your meat for you Pass it back and forth In a passionate kiss From my mouth to yours I like you You You You You You One baby to another says I'm lucky to have met you I don't care what you think Unless it is about me It is now my duty to completely drain you I travel through a tube And end up in your infection Chew your meat for you Pass it back and forth In a passionate kiss From my mouth to yours Sloppy lips to lips You're my vitamins I like you.
