She Don't Use Jelly Lyrics

I know a girl who thinks of ghosts
She'll make ya breakfast
She'll make ya toast
She don't use butter
She don't use cheese
She Don't Use Jelly
Or any of these
She uses Vaseline

I know a guy who goes to shows
When he's at home and he blows his nose
He don't use tissues or his sleeve
He don't use napkins or any of these
He uses magazines
Magazines [Repeat: x4]

I know a girl who reminds me of Cher
(reminds me of Cher)
She's always changing
(she's always changing)
The color of her hair
(color of her hair)
She don't use nothing
That ya buy at the store
She likes her hair to be real orange
She uses tangerines
Tangerines [Repeat: 5]

She Don't Use Jelly
  • The song is knows for it's chorus, "She uses Vaseline," but it's better for legal and marketing purposes to keep brand names out of song titles, as some radio stations won't play them. Vaseline is a kind of petroleum jelly often used as a personal lubricant. Lead singer Wayne Coyne explained the line to Rolling Stone: "We used to do these silly experiments: You drink out of a glass of water, then you spit into the water and drink it. There would be this disconnect of, 'Christ, I'm swallowing my own spit!' So I took that a little bit further. A lot of times people will use Vaseline on their lips because they don't have lip balm, but the idea of putting it on food and eating it repels them."
  • This single was the Lips' only mainstream hit in the US. They had existed for 10 years as a post-punk/psychedelic band out of Oklahoma before releasing it. Since 1993, the Lips' albums The Soft Bulletin and Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots have received a great deal of critical acclaim, but have produced no hit singles in the States.
  • Wayne Coyne told Uncut magazine June 2008 about this track: "When we recorded 'She Don't Use Jelly' we knew we were making something special. Whatever the absurdness of it, you could understand that I'm talking about toast and Vaseline, and it had some kind of innocent little sexual thing that ran through the whole song. That was kind of cool for us because up until then all of our songs were so asexual. I think we felt that there was this sort of the Guns 'N' Roses mentality to Rock 'n' roll, and we were something different. We really had a lot of area to explore that didn't include a bunch of naked women- but here we felt like, 'Oh, what the f--k, let's go for it.'"
