The Lyrics

Original Song:
She said with a frown
“Your clothes are just like a clown’s.
These will not do at all,
you’re getting an overhaul.”

Then my girl, just that night
took my clothes from my sight.
Found a big trash bin, grabbed a light
They’re on fire…that ain’t right.

She said I looked like a chimp
In my bright pink pants
Got my polka-dotted boxers made of
blue and gold mesh
Got my tank top on
With my zebra print suspenders
Don’t know why
She don’t like ‘em
She don’t like ‘em
She don’t like ‘em

“There's a place downtown,
with great fashion all around.
There’s mirrors on the wall
Cause you don’t own one at all

Try these, try it on.”
“No way!” “ Take it off!”
“No way!” “Take it off!
Try these on and take it off!”

Fabric I don’t know
She wants me to do a show
I can’t take much more
Piles of clothes are on the floor.

She said “try it on”
My clothes “take ‘em off”
“No way!” “Take ‘em off
take those off and try ‘em on!”

They’re too tight
They’re not loud
Hate these clothes
Throw them out
“They are hideous”
Then she pouts
“Isn’t this fun? Let’s check out.”

Oh man, I just feel like crap
My already ripped pants
Then she went and popped my collar
I just cannot take this
My jeans are faded
Oh man, I really hate this
Let her know-
I don’t like ‘em
I don't like ‘em
I don't like ‘em

Hate that place downtown
I look like a bigger clown
Don’t like this style at all
Hate buying clothes at the mall

She said “try it on”
I can’t take ‘em off
“Can I take ‘em off?”
She won’t let me take ‘em off

And for her I know
Button up’s the way to go
I was not built for
Clothes that are stiff as a board

And they turn her on
I can’t take ‘em off
Won’t let them come off
I just want to take them off

Oh, oh, no!
Can I please just take them off!?
Oh, oh, no!
Someone help me take ‘em off!

I can’t! TAKE ‘EM OFF!
Too tight! TAKE ‘EM OFF!
Help me! TAKE ‘EM OFF!

Oh no! TAKE ‘EM OFF!
Help me! TAKE ‘EM OFF!
Too tight! TAKE ‘EM OFF!

I feel like a clown
Pants too tight, I can’t sit down
This shirt is way too small
They are not my style at all

And they turn her on.
I can’t take ‘em off
Too small! Take ‘em off
Someone help me take ‘em off

Why can’t she just go
Find someone to do her show?
I can’t take much more
Get new clothes from the thrift store

And I’ll try them on
I won’t take ‘em off
No way! Keep ‘em on
Love my clothes! Won’t take ‘em off!

Are you sure that she would want you to take off your suspenders? Your pants might fall down! ;-D But here, try three 5's on for size! :-)
