She Don't Use Jelly [Version (a)]:

Lyrics from Flaming Lips' original

I know a girl who thinks of ghosts
She'll make you breakfast, she'll make you toast
But she don't use butter and she don't use cheese
She don't use jelly or any of these
She uses vaseline vaseline 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 magazines magazines magazines

I know a girl who reminds me of Cher
She's always changing the color of her hair
She don't use nothing that you buy at the store
She likes her hair to be real orange
She uses tangerines tangerines tangerines tangerines tangerines tangerines
The Song:

"She Don't Use Jelly" is the Flamings Lips' big hit song, the one that made them famous. It can be found on their 1993 album, Transmissions from the Satellite Heart.

Played live once:
January 22, 2003

After hearing the Lips play the song every night while opening for him must have rubbed off on Beck. At his first show after the Beck/Lips tour, Beck played "She Don't Use Jelly"!

It was on January 22 2003, at a private party at the Sundance Film Festival. He also played another Lips' song, "Do You Realize??" that night, which he has played numerous times without the Lips. "She Don't Use Jelly" though has just been played the once, and unfortunately, I'm not aware of a recording of this show.
