The Bitch Went Nuts

                               

So a while back a saw Ben Folds, he was amazing, and he played The Bitch Went Nuts. He explained to the audience that this song is not meant be sexist. It is about the guy who says "The Bitch went nuts" as a reason he and his girl broke up. Whereas the girl has a really sensitive and emotional explanation she gives her girlfriends. I love it, because it is true, and being that girl who hangs out with the guys I have heard this plenty. And to be honest sometimes its true. 

BTW, Al, I totally thought of you when he was talking about this song.

The Bitch Went Nuts
Original Artist: Ben Folds

The bitch went nuts
She stabbed my basketball
And the speakers to my stereo
She called me cunt
But nothing prepared me for
What I found when I came home

Oh and I
Make my own bed
I lie in it
You lie in yours (you lie, you lie in yours)
But they want more
They're at my door
With torches
Please leave me alone
You know just shut it just shut it just shut it

The bitch went nuts
She photoshopped my face (shopped his face)
On to every boy who'd done her wrong
Then she burned them telepathically
Onto the brains of all her embittered drones

Oh now
Now they want more
They're at my door
With torches, scores and scores and scores
To settle with themselves
Who would have thought
I'd scorned them all
They've got a doll of me
They're burning, they're burning, they're burnin
Their own memories

Why do they all know? (Go!)

The bitch went nuts y'all
But everyone said she might
Oh, holy fuckin' shit
Seriously now
Now they want more
they're at my door
with torches, scores and scores
You would have thought
I'd scorned them all
They've got a doll of me
They're burnin'

Why do they all know? (Go!)
