Deanna Lyrics

Artist: Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds
Album: Best of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

O Deanna!
Sweet Deanna!
You know you are my friend, yeah
And I ain't down here for your money
I ain't down here for your love
I ain't down here for your love or money
I'm down here for your soul

No carpet on the floor
And the winding cloth holds many moths
Around your Ku Klux furniture
I cum of death-head in your frock
We discuss the murder plan
We discuss murder and the murder act
Murder takes the wheel of your Cadillac
And death climbs in the back

This is a car
This is a gun
And this a day number one
Our little crimeworn histories
Black and smoking christmas trees
And honey, it ain't mystery
Why you're a mystery to me

We will eat out of their pantries
And their parlours
Ashy leaving in their beds
And we'll unload into their heads
On this mean season
This little angel that I squeezin'
She ain't been mean to me

O Deanna!
You are my friend and my partner
On this house on the hill
And I ain't down here for your money
I ain't down here for your love
I ain't down here for your love or money
I'm down here for your soul

I am a-knocking
With my toolbox and my stocking
And I'll meet you on the corner
Yes, you point it like a finger
And squeeze its little thing
Feel its kick, hear its bang
And let no worry about its issue
Don't worry about where its been
and don't worry about where it hits
Cause it just ain't yours to sin

No it just ain't your to sin
Sweet Deanna
And we ain't getting any younger
And I don't intend gettin' any older
The sun a hump at my shoulder
O Deanna!
Sweet Deanna
And I ain't down here for your money
I ain't down here for your love
I ain't down here for your love of money
I'm down here for your soul

by Vertigo on 5/18/2008 1:51pm
This song rocks!
by Deanna2 on 6/11/2008 4:39pm
I can't believe it either
by DeannaInLV on 6/25/2008 2:07pm
Wow, the only song with my name in it that I've heard of is such a horrible song.. great.
by durrhurr on 6/30/2008 8:49am
taa dziesma ir kruta, stfu.
by DeAnna on 7/7/2008 5:01pm
I can't beleive it either..

I live on a hill
I have a gun
I don't have carpet on my floor

This is totally creapin' me out!
by SCC on 7/10/2008 5:03pm
You people suck. This song is great.
by DeAnna on 7/12/2008 11:32am
I kinda dig it.
by wardy on 7/15/2008 9:52pm
this song is awesome. you should be proud to share a name with it. just listen to the energy.
by Anya on 7/18/2008 4:51pm
i always thought the name 'Deanna' sucked. until i heard this song.
by Deanna82 on 7/29/2008 2:02am
Oh me
oh Deanna
what is the story behind this song?
by deanna on 8/7/2008 6:35pm
ive just changed my name to deanna from diane..theres a whole lot nicer songs writtten about my old name ..haha.deannas such a gorgeous honey name tho!
by Christian on 8/8/2008 5:29am
I cum of death head in your frock???!!! i come out dancing in your frock...
by Anna on 8/10/2008 4:30am
It is not really a horrible song. It is really a love song. A love song not about "lovers" but about two best friends, a "Bonnie and Clyde" sort of friendship. Not necessarily about hurting, but about long night chats and comradeship that two people have about "them and us" more like... A close chat between friends about how it is us against the rest of the world and then conquer-ship!
by Deanna Jean on 8/21/2008 5:35pm
I am the Deanna in the song. The lead singer is a weirdo perv who won't leave me alone. We grew up living next door and he would leave dead animals on my doorstep. He told me he wrote this and the only thing worse than the lyrics is his awful voice.
by Tracy on 9/18/2008 4:39pm
NICK CAVE IS AWESOME!!! You guys just don't know good music.....Saw him last night at the Hollywood Bowl and he performed this was beautiful and amazing and everything that is expected from a great live performance. And Deanna Jean, if you are the girl Nick Cave wrote the song about, where did you two grow up together? Huh??? Yeah, that's what I thought.....
by Deanna 3 on 9/22/2008 1:48am
I still like his voice so hope the song will sound okay. I havn't realy studied the lyrics at this point and don't realy inted to...
Sux for you Deanna Jean LOL
by dee deedee deanna on 11/3/2008 7:22pm
It wasn't horrible exactly. The music is ok, the lyrics are supercreepy and I think I'll keep my soul if you don't mind. I'll just keep using Randy Rhoads "dee" as my theme song.
by Jess on 1/13/2009 6:00pm
This song isn't horrible!!! It's probably one of the catchiest songs he wrote.
Just listen to the actual song before saying it's horrible!
I WISH my name was Deanna!
by Eliza Day on 2/15/2009 10:15am
Oh, Deanna Jean, no one believes you.

by GBH on 3/4/2009 1:50pm
It's a great song - especially the acoustic version.
by Deanna on 3/13/2009 5:15pm
OH MY!!!! IM IN SHOCK!!!! O.O We Deannas should make a better song with our name in it. this one is just plain wrong!
by Loves Executioner on 3/27/2009 9:42pm
I know exactly who Deanna is - I knew her well in Melbourne Australia back in the day.

One of the prettiest girls I met in my life, she was stunningly beautiful.

She now lives in another Aust city and values her privacy.

She does not like this song, but remains friends with NC.

As for Deanna Jean? Hmmm..
by Deanna L. on 4/2/2009 3:40pm
by Manolo on 6/6/2009 3:53pm
stupid girls with stupid tastes in music, i bet. this song is great. to much for your strawberry brains?
by idiots on 8/4/2009 8:18am
Fucking cretinous retards, please don't comment on stuff you can't possible comprehend.
by Diana, on 8/22/2009 2:32pm
eff you guys, this is totally my theme song.

when else can you chant your own name so joyously without feeling like a total narcisist.

i'll keep this one for myself.

my names not spelled diana but the i is pronounced like an e.
by Deanna8D on 9/27/2009 10:45am
OMG wow! this is seriously the only song with my name and it has to be bought like werid crap lol! Figures!! Oh well at least my name is FINALLY in a song ha ha!!
by Deanna C on 1/9/2010 1:37pm
The rest of you Deannas suck, this song is awesome
by mr tee on 1/23/2010 7:20pm
this song is pure ecstasies, love and insanity and boundaries and breaking them....

and the fact that there are so many deannas "freaked out" because of it only proofs how brilliant it is.

"Cause it just ain't yours to sin!!!"


actually i totally understand that you feel freaked out becauss THIS IS YOU!
by Peter on 2/3/2010 3:07am
D for dunce Deanna's. Get a life, what have you ever done that would possibily think anyone would write a song that has anything to do with your dumb lives. This is great, you are shit.
by Deanna D on 4/25/2010 12:46am
hehe, I was named after Deanna Durbin.
by Tony Hannahdarko on 7/13/2010 7:45am
first lyrics :

Tony Hannah
Tony Hannah
Tony Hannah
I'm damned for your soul, your love and your money
Tony Hannah !
by Hayley on 7/25/2010 2:03pm
I absolutely adore Nick Cave , and if you read any of his stuff you will realise what a genius the man actually is ... Anyway I am expecting a little girl in November and am naming her Darcy Deanna , as loved the name as soon as I heard the song !!
by Dee Deanna on 8/27/2010 10:40pm
hahahha i mean i wish my name was in a cooler song, but like haha this would happen to me. The only song my names in and its like creepy ahaha :)

p.s. never seen so many other people with the name Deanna ^^
by Deanna on 10/16/2010 11:45pm
whatever, this song is amazing. you really have to hear it to believe it. nick cave is amazing and if there has to be a song with my name in it i'm happy he wrote it.
by Right on 12/7/2010 7:47pm
I've never seen such painful immaturity and shallowness from a collection of virtual people.

Makes me sick.

The song is stellar "I cum a death head in your frock" that's bloody gold.
by deanna;lolwut on 1/5/2011 11:04pm
this. is. so. horrible. D:
by K.L.N. on 1/14/2011 6:01am
One of the finest songs ever written. Just unfortunate for you folks that it has your name in it but you are not open minded enough to embrace it's brilliance.
by Yet Another Deanna on 1/26/2011 10:17pm
It has some weird lyrics but it also has kind of a cool vibe to it. I have to agree that I have never seen so many Deannas! I am 43 and have only met a handful of them in my entire life. I am also named after Deanna Durbin.
by 1984 on 3/13/2011 9:07am
Jesus christ. Some people are concerned that their name is the same as a song with content which they don't approve of? By this method all names would be unusable in the end, just keep looking.
Btw, why is the content of a song worse than say a movie? Both are fiction and neither of them define who you actually are.
The song btw is awesome.
by tina on 4/26/2011 11:32am
First off, nick cave is awesome. Second, to the deanna who is delusional and thinks this song is about you, its not. You are just a crazy person. And third, to all you deannas who don't like this song, your name sucks anyway and you should be happy that someone as awesome as nick cave is singing a song with your horrible name in it.
by Deana on 8/5/2011 11:59pm
So glad its not the same spelling of my name. Sounds the same tho >>
by Polly Jean on 8/29/2011 2:20am
Poor sad Deannas...why the fuck would such inane, shallow people be listening to NICK CAVE??!!
by Deanna on 9/10/2011 10:58am
"TINA" is a SHITTY name, in my opinion, and the name "ANYA" sounds like a hooker's name. The name "Deanna" is beautiful and unique, just like this song.
by deanna rebecca klobas on 10/16/2011 7:04am
i think this song is great, strange and uncommon just like the name deanna :)
by Wow on 10/21/2011 9:54pm
The lyrics printed here are wayyyy the hell off.
by deanna on 12/8/2011 4:25am
send whole song
by KAREN on 7/13/2012 12:04am
by Deeana on 8/25/2012 8:13pm
This song is amazing. Nick Cave is amazing. What is wrong with everyone?! Totally my theme song...
by Deanna777 on 12/31/2012 12:50am
Dude. I have to admit this song is creepy I dont care how "shallow" I may seem but this song is clearly talking about murdering this Deanna chick and I know it don't apply to me but still freaky!! Nick Cave seems pretty twisted. Maybe that's the only reason some of you like it.
by Stagger Lee on 3/24/2013 4:26pm
Nick Cave is amazing. I saw him perform this song Friday and it was beautiful. I wish my name was Deanna. Actually I wish my name was Stagger Lee. You think this song is fucked up? Go listen to Stagger Lee.
by Omalley on 5/31/2013 11:00am
Or go listen to Omalley's bar.

You should all just be happy you're not name Eliza Day.. Or Henry Lee.
by Deanna on 6/10/2013 10:24am
Wow. Not bad, so weird to hear a song that has the name 'Deanna'in it, since Deanna is such an uncommon name!:)
by Deanna on 4/11/2014 6:31pm
This is my name... I know people listen to it, and i'm usually REALLY tolerant with music, But this song is so hard to get into haha
by Deanna on 7/8/2014 9:38pm
This song is freakin' awesome! Can't understand all the negative comments. You people just don't get it!
by De 1 True DeAnna on 11/22/2014 6:33am
I love how all DeAnna's are super opinionated! Badass boss peaches!
