Wrong Way
Sublime Lyrics


Annie's twelve years old, in two more, she'll be a whore
Nobody ever told her it's the wrong way
Don't be afraid with the quickness, you get laid
For your family, get paid
It's the wrong way

I gave her all that I had to give
I'm gonna make it hard to live
Salty tears running down to her chin
It ruins up her makeup and never wanna give

A cigarette pressed between her lips
But I'm staring at her tits
It's the wrong way
Strong if I can but I am only a man
So I take her to the can
It's the wrong way

The only family that she's ever had
Is the seven horny brothers and a drunk-ass dad
He needed money so he put her on the street
Everything was going fine till the day she met me

Happy are you sad, want to shoot your dad
I'll do anything I can it's the wrong way
We talked all night and tried to make it right
Believe me shit was tight
It was the wrong way

So run away if you don't want to stay
'Cause I ain't here to make you, oh no
It's up to you what you really want to do
Spend some time in America
Dubstyle

She'll give you all that she got to give
But I'm gonna make it hard to live
Big salty tears running down to her chin
And it smears of her makeup and never wanna give
So we ran away
And I'm sorry when I say that straight to this very day
It was the wrong way
She took a hike it don't matter if I like it or not
Because she only wants the wrong way

I gave her all that I had to give
She still wouldn't take it, whoa no
Her two brown eyes are leaking like salty tears
It still ruins her makeup and never want to give

@desiguy55 Social workers and people genuinely trying to help prostitutes is not a fair comparison to this song. Lol. He started screwing her at 12, debatably 14 depending on how you take the lyrics. Sure, he got her off the streets, but that’s not exactly what a social worker would do.

“A cigarette pressed between her lips,
But I’m staring at her tits
It’s the wrong way
Strong if I can but I am only a man
So I take her to the can”

There really is only one way to interrupt the song in my eyes.

“And I’m sorry when I say that straight to this very day
It was the wrong way”

Dude went and picked up a minor, screwed around with her, and knew it was the wrong way. No sense in trying to make anything more of it.

sublime knows how to tell a dark story with style...

I barely discovered this song now in 2022. It sent me on a roller coaster of emotions. Purely genius storytelling in a song. Brings up serious matters brilliantly and made me feel every emotion ever while still having a good beat. Will probably go down as one of my favorite songs ever.

Glad you've heard it, now listen to more Sublime! And read about Bradley Nowell, such an amazing artist and lyricist such a talent lost to a country torn apart by opiates.
