There's a song I really like but I can't remember the title and I certainly can't remember the words. Perhaps you can help me.

I've summarised the lyrics as best I can, but in a rather literal way.

I'm afraid I've forgotten the first verse completely so that makes it even harder. Anyway here goes with the bit I can remember.

Greetings! Lots of greetings! But, oops mind that hole.


I'm not so worried now it's dark and we're all here. How about a show?

My brain doesn't seem to be working, I think I'm coming down with a bug.

Anyway, as I said, How about a show from these two people, a small creature and... Ooh I'm feeling rather...you know.


Here's a self-contradictory statement for you.

Is it my birthday? Thanks!

We have everlasting togetherness.

Any help?

Note

It is a very well-known song with many millions of plays on Youtube--if only I could remember the title.

    $\begingroup$ Some of your word choices are questionable. "Is it my birthday? Thanks!" is just bad for that line $\endgroup$ – Kevin Oct 22 '15 at 17:41
  • $\begingroup$ What is this song all about? Can't figure any lyrics out. How do the words to it go? I wish you'd tell me, I don't know. $\endgroup$ – Damian Yerrick Oct 23 '15 at 14:59
  • $\begingroup$ Why does my other comment rhyme? Not something I do all the time. (Hint: Jrveq Ny Lnaxbivp) $\endgroup$ – Damian Yerrick Oct 23 '15 at 15:15
  • $\begingroup$ You could make yours an actual puzzle and (if it's useful) refer back to this one. It's your choice, after all 'Life is just a box of chocolates!' $\endgroup$ – chasly from UK Oct 23 '15 at 15:38

The song is:

Smells Like Teen Spirit, by Nirvana
Greetings! Lots of greetings! (Hello, hello, hello.....)
But, oops mind that hole. (How low)
I'm not so worried now it's dark (With the lights out, it's less dangerous)
and we're all here. How about a show? (Here we are now, entertain us)
My brain doesn't seem to be working, I think I'm coming down with a bug.(I feel stupid, and contagious)
Anyway, as I said, How about a show (here we are now, entertain us)
from these two people, a small creature and... Ooh I'm feeling
rather...you know. (a mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido)
Here's a contradictory statement for you. (I'm worse at what I do best)
Is it my birthday? Thanks! (For this gift, I feel blessed)
We have everlasting togetherness. (Our little group has always been and always will until the end)

    $\begingroup$ In that context, that statement would be "I'm worse at what I do best" $\endgroup$ – Irishpanda Oct 22 '15 at 15:55
