He Hit Me
Hole Lyrics

He hit me and it felt like a kiss
He hit me but it didn't hurt me
He couldn't stand to hear me say
That i'd been with someone new
And when i told him i had been untrue
He hit me and it felt like a kiss
He hit me and i knew he loved me
Cause if he didn't care for me
I could have never made him mad
He hit me and i was glad
Baby won't you stay...
He hit me and it felt like a kiss
He hit me and i knew i loved him
Cause when he took me in his arms
With all the tenderness there is
He hit me and he made me feel
Baby won't you stay...

I can't believe how few people understand the point of this song. It's not a damn love song, you're not supposed to find it romantic or think it's the singer's idea of romance. It's about the tragedy of an abusive relationship.

I never understood the meaning of this song until I experienced it, makes perfect sense now. It’s about someone who is stuck in an abusive relationship and thinks it’s love

This is not a original Hole song. It was wrote by Carole King and Gerry Goffin in 1962 for The Crystals. Phill Spector was the producer.

RageHole really? Because the song writer Carole King (!?!) apologized for it and said she was ashamed of the song.


Spot on most people do not get it !

I Thought It Was Funny

This song was written in 1962 by Carole King and some guy can't remember his name. They wrote for an all black female band called The Crystals. It's not promoting domestic abuse just stating the point of view from women who are victims of domestic violence and how they rationalize being hit, beaten. Something some of us will never understand. I'm glad I have never experienced domestic abuse. I always wonder how could a woman put up with being a man's punching bag and still say, but I love him. The lyrics to he hit me, kind of give you an idea of the mindset of women in abusive relationships.

It was their babysitter--who was later Little Eva "The Locomotion"
