Meredith Brooks - Bitch (as you can guess contains bad words)

In the days of PC gone mad and people overreacting to things I was shocked to hear Asda playing one of my favourite songs this week... in fact I moseyed around the clothing/ entertainment department far longer then I anticipated just to hear all of it.

I kind of see this song as a theme tune to my life ... I am all these things and you know what ... if you don't like it I don't care, I DO have a softer side but only if you deserve to see it :)

Released in May 1997 I was still at school (albeit high school) and to say the word 'bitch' even in context/ a song was really frowned about in my house.  However it is one of my go-to feel good songs for an anger release.


I hate the world today
You're so good to me
I know but I can't change
Tried to tell you
But you look at me like maybe
I'm an angel underneath
Innocent and sweet
Yesterday I cried
Must have been relieved to see
The softer side
I can understand how you'd be so confused
I don't envy you
I'm a little bit of everything
All rolled into one

I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

So take me as I am
This may mean
You'll have to be a stronger man
Rest assured that
When I start to make you nervous
And I'm going to extremes
Tomorrow I will change
And today won't mean a thing


Just when you think, you got me figured out
The season's already changing
I think it's cool, you do what you do
And don't try to save me


I'm a bitch, I'm a tease
I'm a goddess on my knees
When you hurt, when you suffer
I'm your angel undercover
I've been numb, I'm revived
Can't say I'm not alive
You know I wouldn't want it any other way
