lyrics

Gretchen got a gun for Christmas
Actually, it's not really like that but the result is the same.
She went to a party and met a guy there, they fell in love instantly
In a whirlwind of flowers & hearts & all you only see at the movies

Gretchen got a butcher's knife for her birthday
But, no, it's not really like that... She pulled out of all her projects
to move in a flat with her new boyfriend
They got carried away & bought a car & a dog & a brand new tv set

Gretchen's got a gun, Gretchen's got a knife
Gretchen's got razors, but it's not like that...

Gretchen got a razorblade for Valentine's day
Except it's not really like that... She fell down the stairs one day
And all her friends & family were standing by her bed
Her boyfriend the closest, hiding the little bloodspots on his hands

Do you get it now ? Do you get it ?

about

Mary Bell Paris, France

Mary Bell is a Parisian punk band named after a British serial killer from the ‘60s, inspired by (mostly American) hardcore and grunge bands from the ‘90s. Their music sounds like something you’d get if the heaviest of grunge bands got together with feminist Riot Grrl punk bands to form a supergroup: Imagine, say, Kathleen Hanna on vocals with Buzz Osborne (of the Melvins) on guitar.
