Sophie B. Hawkins singing her hit single in "Herstory of Dance"


In the study group's fourth year at Greendale, Britta organizes a dance at school protesting with what she considered to be an anti-feminst Sadie Hawkins dance organized by Dean Pelton. She proclaimed her dance to be named after who she mistook to be a historical leader in the American Women's Right's movement, Sophie B. Hawkins. Even after being corrected by the study group that she meant Susan B. Anthony, she decided to go ahead with her plans due to Jeff ridiculing her. Despite numerous attempts, Britta was unsuccessful in trying to get Sophie to perform at the dance. Unknown to Britta, Pierce knew Sophie personally from the time Hawthorne Wipes sponsored Lilith Fair. He took pity on Britta and arranged to have Sophie and her band show up to the dance at the last minute. The first song she performed was "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover" from her album "Tongues and Tails". It was first heard sung by the artist herself in the Season Four episode "Herstory of Dance" .

Sophie B. Hawkins - Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover

Lyrics:


That old dog has chained you up all right
Give you everything you need
To live inside a twisted cage
Sleep beside in empty rage
I had a dream I was your hero
Damn I wish I was your lover
I'd rock you till the daylight comes
Make sure you are smiling and warm
I am everything
Tonight I'll be your mother
I'll do such things to ease your pain
Free your mind and you won't feel ashamed
Open up gonna come inside
Gonna fill you up
Make you cry
This bloke can't stand to see you black and blue
I give you something sweet each time you
Come inside my jungle book
It's just too good
Don't say you'll stay
'Cause then you go away
Damn I wish I was your lover
I'll rock you till the daylight comes
Make sure you are smiling and warm
I am everything
Tonight I'll be your mother
I'll do such things to ease your pain
Free your mind and you won't feel ashamed
Shucks
For me there is no other
You're the only shoe that fits
I can't imagine I'll grow out of it
Damn I wish I was your lover
If I was your girl believe me
I'd turn on the Rolling Stones
We could groove along and feel much better
Let me in
I could do it forever and ever, ever n' ever
Give me an hour to kiss you
Walk through heaven's door I'm sure
We don't need no doctor to feel much better
Let me in
Forever and ever and ever and ever
I sat on the mountainside with peace of mind
I lay by the ocean making love to her with visions clear
Walked for days with no one near
And I return as chained and bound to you
Damn I wish I was your lover
I'll rock you till the daylight comes
Make sure you are smiling and warm
I have everything
Tonight I'll be your mother
I'll do such things to ease your pain
Free your mind and you won't feel ashamed
Shucks for me there is no other
You're the only shoe that fits
I can't imagine I'll grow out of it
Damn I wish I was your lover
Open up gonna come inside
Gonna fill you up
Make you cry


ControversyEdit

Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover - Sophie B04:17

Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover - Sophie B. Hawkins

Back in 1992 when the original video for the song "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover" was released it was considered very controversial. Although tame by today's standards, it featured Sophie B. Hawkins singing the song while writhing around in what appeared to be a diaper and contained some homosexual references. MTV refused to air the video banning it from their broadcast so an alternate video was shot featuring just her and her band to placate the network as seen above.
