Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

"People Ain’t No Good - Live from KCRW"

[Spoken: Nick Cave & Viewers]
[Nick Cave:] You know "People Ain't No Good"?
[Viewers:]  Yeah!

[Verse 1]
People  just ain’t no good
I think that’s well understood
You can see it everywhere you look
People  just ain’t no good

[Verse 2]
We  were married under cherry trees
Under blossom we made our vows
All  the blossoms come sailing down
Through the streets and through the playgrounds

[Verse 3]
The sun would stream on the sheets
Awoken by the morning bird
We’d  buy the Sunday newspapers
Never read a single word

[Chorus]
People, they ain’t no good
People, they ain’t no good
People, they ain’t no good at all

[Verse 4]
Seasons came, seasons went
The winter stripped the blossoms bare
A different tree now lines the streets
Shaking its fists in the air

[Verse 5]
The winter slammed us like a fist
The windows rattling in the gales
To which she drew the curtains down
Made out of her wedding veils

[Chorus]
People, they ain’t no good
People, they ain’t no good
People, they ain’t no good at all

[Verse 6]
To our love, send a dozen white lilies
To our love, send a coffin of wood
To our love, let all the pink-eyed pigeons coo
That people, they ain’t no good

[Verse 7]
To our love, send back all the letters
To our love, a valentine of blood
To our love, let all the jilted lovers cry
That people, they just ain’t no good

[Verse 8]
It ain’t that in their hearts they’re bad
They can comfort you, some even try
They nurse you when you’re ill of health
They bury you when you go and die

[Verse 9]
It ain’t that in their hearts they’re bad
They’d stick by you if they could
Oh, but that’s just bullsh*t baby
People just ain’t no good at all
