Scentless Apprentice is the second song on In Utero.
Lyrics[edit | edit source]
Like most babies smell like butter
His smell smells like no other
He was born scentless and senseless
He was born a scentless apprentice
Go Away! (x3)
Every wet nurse refused to feed him
Electrolytes smell like semen
I promise not to sell your purfumed secrets
There are countless formulas for pressing flowers
I lie in the soil and fertilize mushrooms
Leaking out gas fumes made into perfume
You can't fire me because I quit
Throw me in a fire I wont throw a fit
Go Away! (x7)
Trivia[edit | edit source]
