Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

What grows on? How'd it start?
What grows on? Looks like slime.
It's tearing your feet apart.
Should you treat it with quicklime?
What grows on? Don't look fine.

The other day you showered
With no sandals for your toes.
Your feet were overpowered
By fungus that grows and grows.
You feet hurt so much that you have got to lie
Down and cry.

What grows on? How'd it start?
What grows on? Looks like slime.
It's tearing your feet apart.
Should you treat it with quicklime?
What grows on? Don't look fine.

You wet them in the morning
Then you tried to cleanse the grime.
But later they were turning
The color of moldy rind.
You were queasy--thought of treating them with lye,
Why not try?
What grows on? How'd it start?

So you went slinking to the shelf
To find some Lanacaine.
You spread the stuff on liberally,
But it increased the pain.
Will it be like gangrene, where you toes will die?
Or just fry?

What comes off? All ten parts.
What goes down? Lots of wine.
With size 13 you did start,
Now you are down to size 9,
And you can't toe the line.
