Whores

Whores is a Jane’s Addiction song written in 1985.  It was one of the few songs that had not received a proper studio-based recording release.  That changed in 2009 when the original lineup of Jane’s Addiction recorded a studio version of this song, produced and recorded by Trent Reznor in his home studio located in Beverly Hills, CA.  The song was released for free as part of the 2009 NIN|JA tour sampler.

Lyrics

Now way down low where the streets are littered
I find my fun with the freaks and the niggers
I don’t want much man give me a little
I’m gonna take my changes if I get ’em

I love them whores they never judge you
Now what can you say when your a whore?
And they cast that pearl and it don’t upset them
Yeah, they take their chances if they get em

Now will you hear me go off!
Give me some more!
Motherfucker!
I need a little more!
God damn you!
Give me some more!
Motherfucker!
Give me some more!

You give me bread crumb uh-huh
And I’m tired of living the boss’ dream
They’ll squeeze you dry man if you let ’em
Better take your – take your – take your chances if you get em

Now will you hear me go off!
Give me some more!
Motherfucker!
I need a little more!
God damn you!
Give me some more!
Motherfucker!
Give me some more!

Oh oh! I love them whores!
Oh oh! I love them whores!
Oh how I love them whores!
