Notes

Martin Gore said in the commentary track on the DVD of '101' in 2003:

"I didn't discover Iggy Pop until about 1977, with 'The Idiot' and 'Lust For Life'. I went back and re-discovered some of his older stuff from The Stooges. Over the years, we haven't really covered too many songs. We covered 'Dirt' by The Stooges on one of our B-sides recently. I just think that he always had a sense of humour and this darkness to his music at the same time, which is a hard thing to marry, and I think he always has done that really well."

Lyrics


Dirt

Ooh, I've been dirt

And I don't care

Ooh, I've been dirt

And I don't care


'Cause I'm burning inside

'Cause I'm burning inside

I'm the fire of life

Yeah alright


Ooh, I've been hurt

And I don't care

Ooh, I've been hurt

And I don't care


'Cause I'm burning inside

'Cause I'm burning inside


And do you feel it

Said do you feel it when you touch me

I said do you feel it when you touch me


I'm a fire

Well there's a fire

Yeah, alright


It's just a burning inside

It's just a burning inside

Said do you feel it

Said do you feel it when you cut me

Said do you feel it when you cut me


There's a fire

There's a fire

A fire

Inside


It was just a dreaming
