Spank Thru


About Spank Thru

"Spank Thru" is a song by the American rock band Nirvana, written by vocalist and guitarist, Kurt Cobain. It appears on the compilation album Sub Pop 200, released in December 1988. Though rarely performed live beyond the first few years of the band's existence, the song is significant in that it helped lead to the formation of Nirvana by helping convince bassist Krist Novoselic to start a band with Cobain. Novoselic specifically referred to the song as "the first Nirvana song" in the liner notes to the live compilation album From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah, released in October 1996.  


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

This song is for lovers out there 
And the little light in the trees 
And all the flowers have gingivitis 
And the birds fly happily 
We're together once again my love 
I need you back  oh baby baby 
I can't explain just why we lost it from the start 
Living without you girl  you'll only break my heart... 
I can feel it I can hold it I can rub it I can shape it 
I can mold it I can cut it I can taste it I can spank it 
Beat it 
Masturbate it 
I been looking for days now 
Always hearing the same ol' city boy
Won't you spank through? 
I can make you do things you won't think you ever could
