    Lyrics

    Polly wants a cracker
    Think I should get off her first
    Think she wants some water
    To put out the blow torch

    Isn't me
    Have a seat
    Let me clip
    Dirty wings
    Let me take a ride
    Hurt yourself
    Want some help
    Help myself
    Got some rope
    Have been told
    Promise you
    Have been true
    Let me take a ride
    Hurt yourself*
    Want some help
    Help myself*

    Polly wants a cracker
    Maybe she would like some food
    She asked me to untie her
    A chase would be nice for a few

    Isn't me
    Have a seat
    Let me clip
    Dirty wings
    Let me take a ride
    Hurt yourself
    Want some help
    Help myself
    Got some rope
    Have been told
    Promise you
    Have been true
    Let me take a ride
    Hurt yourself
    Want some help
    Help myself

    Polly said
    Polly says her back hurts
    She's just as bored as me
    She caught me off my guard
    Amazes me the will of instinct

    Isn't me
    Have a seat
    Let me clip
    Dirty wings
    Let me take a ride
    Hurt yourself
    Want some help
    Help myself
    Got some rope
    Have been told
    Promise you
    Have been true
    Let me take a ride
    Hurt yourself
    Want some help
    Help myself

      "In the VH1 Classic Albums documentary about Nevermind, bass player Krist Novoselic remembers Kurt Cobain writing "Polly" after reading a newspaper article about the abduction, torture, and rape of a 14 year old girl who had just finished attending a rock show in Tacoma, Washington."

      As per Wikipedia...

      Yeah, this song is about rape. And yeah, it's kind of awesome. In order for a song to be anti anything, it doesn't necessarily have to say it clearly. To think that Kurt would sing a song glorifying rape is not something I'd believe.
      My interpretation: It highlights the apathy that the rapist has for the act. He doesn't necesarily see it as violent because to him it's not. It's not even fun. he tries to make himself believe that he cares about her; if he doesnt'he's a monster. He tries to tell himself that she's a co-participant for the same reason. No, he's not "out of his mind". He thinks he's being logical. Whether it's obviously violent or it resembles "normal" sex, rape is still rape. He's just trying to justify the act away by pretending to care.

      rape? really? maybe it's just me (and it most likely is) but i always think of BDSM whenever i hear this song...but everyone's claiming rape eh? alright then, i suppose im wrong...it just doesnt seem violent-minus the blow torch...

      The song is not really anti-rape. It's written from the point of view of a guy who is in the process of brutally raping a girl. The song also shows that the rapist isn't entirely out of his mind because he included lines like 'she's just as bored as me' and 'maybe she wants some water'.

      this song is supposed to be anti-rape, though the lyrics say otherwise. definitely one of the best nirvana songs ~ we will remember kurt
