Beans, beans, beans
Jessie had some beans
He was happy, happy, happy
And he ate some beans

Naked, naked, naked
Sitting cross-legged
Naked, naked, naked
And he was happy, happy, happy

    I wake up in the morning, it's Beans. When I'm in the shower, it Beans. When I'm on my way to work, it's Beans. When I'm eating dinner with my family, it's Beans. Before I go to bed, it's Beans. My life 24/7, is Beans. Beans is all I know and will ever know...BEANS

    Beans is the BEST song ever written. It had great meaning and rhythm. Everything about this was written perfectly. From the vocals to the riff, a lot of soul was put into this amazing song.

    It's about his Dad named Jessie who often inspired Kurt's songs by eating beans and drinking wine, then puking melodiously to entertain him.
    He referred to it as 'gargling love songs'.

    I don't think this song can be interpreted because according to a friend of mine he was buzzed on heroine when he was writing it or he was rambiling incoherantly while he was buzzed and they just recorded him. I'm pretty sure that's the truth I'm just looking for validation of his claim.
