The cover of the "Pennyroyal Tea" single.

"Pennyroyal Tea" is a song released by Nirvana on their third album In Utero. The song was scheduled to be released as a single in April of 1994. However, due to Kurt Cobain's untimely death, the single project was scraped.

Scott Litt remixed this song for the single. The vocal harmonies and acoustic guitar are more present in this particular mix.

Lyrics:

I'm on my time with everyone

I have very bad posture

Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea

Distill the life that's inside of me

Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea

I'm anemic royalty

Give me a Lenord Cohen afterworld

So I can sigh eternally

I'm so tired, I can't sleep

I'm a liar and a thief

Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea

I'm anemic royalty

I'm on warm milk, laxatives

Cherry-flavored antacids

Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea

Distill the life that's inside of me

Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea

I'm anemic royalty
