Nicole: No, it was accidental, I’m so cool.

Nicole: Let’s do the point, let’s do the point and see who’s louder?
BC: I see you. Like to play a depressing song now. You like depressing music, that’s good. It’s worked for me for about 20 years. Heh heh heh heh heh. We’re at the song about my daddy, Bill Corgan Senior. Wild Bill, that’s what he was known as when he was young, Wild Bill. Heh heh heh, Wild Bill, that’s what they called him. I was--I was Little Bill, he was Wild Bill. This is a song called A Song for a Son.
A Song for a Son
