JESUS WANTS ME FOR A SUNBEAM

 

 Jesus don't want me for a sunbeam
Sunbeams are not made like me

Don't expect me to cry
For all the reasons you had to die
Don't ever ask your love of me

Don't expect me to cry
Don't expect me to lie
Don't expect me to die for thee

Jesus don't want me for a sunbeam
Sunbeams are not made like me

Don't expect me to cry
For all the reasons you had to die
Don't ever ask your love of me

Don't expect me to cry
Don't expect me to lie
Don't expect me to die for thee

Don't expect me to cry
Don't expect me to lie
Don't expect me to die for thee

Jesus don't want me for a sunbeam
Sunbeams are not made like me

Don't expect me to cry
For all the reasons you had to die
Don't ever ask your love of me

Don't expect me to cry
Don't expect me to lie

Don't expect me to die
Don't expect me to cry

Don't expect me to lie
Don't expect me to die for thee
 

 

 

Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam la prima cover dell'unplugged. Cobain introdusse il brano come "un'interpretazione di un'antica canzone cristiana". Ed proprio da un antico inno cristiano che Eugene Kelly e Francis McKee dei Vaselines avevano creato questa canzone, dai toni pacati ed avvolgenti.

L'interpretazione dei Nirvana in versione unplugged non molto diversa da quella dei Vaselines. Durante altri concerti, tuttavia, la band ha proposto spesso versioni "elettriche" del brano, dal carattere fortemente rock.

Il titolo esatto della canzone quello da noi riportato (Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam), che figura anche in un disco dei Vaselines. Su un altro loro disco, come sull'MTV Unplugged In New York, viene riportato erroneamente il titolo Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam.
