Late Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland recorded a demo for a song titled “Pretty Mess” in 1997-1998 according to BelowEmpty.com. It was recorded for Spice Girls member Ginger Spice’s first solo album Schizophonic. She passed on it and didn’t use it, but 20 years later it has surfaced on YouTube.

Weiland did some collaborations throughout his 23-year recording career with pop artists, including recording his own version of Pharrell Williams’ future hit “Happy” in 2006, before Pharrell took the song back for himself and released it a few years later with heavily reworked lyrics.

Lyrics:

You’re getting over on me
Don’t pull one over on me
Your time is ticking like a time bomb, baby
You’re such a pretty mess, boy
You better fess up baby
Your time is ticking but your time is running out

These things, These things, are really real to me
My real time is running out
(Such a pretty mess)

Listen
You’re getting over on me
Don’t pull one over on me
Your time is ticking like a time bomb, baby
You’re such a pretty mess, boy
You better fess up baby
You keep on ticking but your time is running out
