6/16/1996 alternate lyrics

[intro]
Ya know, when I was like…
When I was like 15 years old
I used to have long hair
And used to have studs coming out of my throat
Used to have…
I used to drink and scream with little dogs
And scare children
I used to listen to the Sex Pistols
I used to listen to…
I used to listen to Iron Maiden
And I used to listen to…
Anything that was too loud to bear
I’d listen to…
And I saw straight up and down that I was gonna scream
And scream
And scream
And scream
And life went on…
But if I looked at myself today, I’d say
“Hey, what a queer little quiet melodic motherfucker that guy is”
Oh my God, I’d turn around and say….
“Hey, you never know…..”

Don’t you ever wonder…..
Maybe if you took a left turn, instead of taking that right
You’d be somebody quite different tonight
Don’t you ever wonder
Man, could have I been somebody quite different from me
Somebody with a different scene

Don’t you ever wonder
Maybe, maybe if the day came up and I rose, instead of sleeping late, I’d be somebody Other than myself
Somebody
Anyone, anyone, anyone….
Dancing Nancies
main lyrics
Well, could I have been a parking lot attendant?
could I have been a millionaire in Bel Air?
could I have been lost somewhere in Paris?
could I have been your little brother?
could I have been anyone other than me?
could I have been, oh, anyone other than me?
could I have been anyone other than me?
could I have been anyone?

He stands, touch his hair, his shoes untied
tongue gaping, stare
could I have been a magnet for money?
could I have been anyone other than me?

Twenty-three and so tired of life
such a shame to throw it all away
the images grow darker still
could I have been anyone other than me?

And then I look up at the sky, my mouth is open wide
lick and taste, what's the use in worrying?
what's the use in hurrying?
turn, turn, we almost become dizzy

I am who I am, who I am
well, who am I?
requesting some enlightenment
could I have been anyone other than me?

And then I'll sing and dance, I'll play for you tonight
the thrill of it all
dark clouds may hang on me sometimes
but I'll work it out

And then I look up at the sky, my mouth is open wide
lick and taste, what's the use in worrying?
what's the use in hurrying?
turn, turn, we almost become dizzy

Falling out of a world of lies
could I have been a dancing nancy
a dancing nancy
could I have been anyone other than me?

And then I'll sing and dance, la la la
hey la la la, hey la la la
sing and dance, la la la
hey la la la, hey la la la
sing and dance, I'll play for you tonight
the thrill of it all
dark clouds may hang on me sometimes
but I'll work it out

And then I look up at the sky, my mouth is open wide
lick and taste, what's the use in worrying?
what's the use in hurrying?
turn, turn, we almost become dizzy
