Covered Girlfriend In A Coma on the album Whereabouts Unknown (1995).


Mojo Nixon heavily adapted the lyrics for his version:

Girlfriend's in a coma, I know it's serious Girlfriend in a coma, I know it's serious There were times when I could have murdered her, oh yeah I would do anything not to have to hurt her

Let me ask ya' Do you really think she'll pull through? Do you really think she'll be all right? Do you really think she'll pull through? Tonight

Girlfriend's in a coma, I know it's serious (girlfriend in a coma) Girlfriend's in a coma, I know it's serious, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (girlfriend in a coma)

There were times when I could have strangled her But I don't want nothin' to go ahead and mangle her

Do you really think she'll pull through? Do you really think she'll be all right? Do you really think she'll pull through? Tonight

Girlfriend in a coma, I know it's serious, oh yes I do (girlfriend in a coma) Girlfriend in a coma, girl's makin' me delirious (girlfriend in a coma)

There she was lyin' in a coma I could smell the hospital aroma She was lyin' there like a loaf of bread I said, "baby baby baby, are you dead?" And she said... nothin' at all

Now most of you all out there are thinkin', "Mojo, you're an insensitive idjit galoot! Whatever feelin' you got in your body It's so small you could ram it up a gnat's ass And it'd look like a BB in a boxcar!" Yeah, well, don't blame me Blame the writer of this song, Morrissey

Yeah, don't blame me, blame Morrissey Y'know that fruitcake that sings in The Smiths? Don't blame me, blame Morrissey Ah, he's celibate Yeah well, I, Mojo Nixon, am the anti-Morrissey I, Mojo Nixon, am the anti-Morrissey Can't you see, can't you see That I am the anti-Morrissey Ah, 'cause I'm a meat eater

Yeah, I like my meat, and I like it sweet And I like to get laid, and I always get paid Hey, Morrissey, kiss my big hairy butt

Girlfriend in a coma, I know it's serious (girlfriend in a coma) Girlfriend in a coma, girlfriend in a coma (girlfriend in a coma) I gotta girlfriend in a coma Girlfriend in a coma, girlfriend in a coma Girlfriend in a coma, came from Tacoma Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Girlfriend in a coma Girlfriend in a coma

So, you're pretty sure, Doc, she's not gonna come out of it? Okay, thanks
