The Lyrics

Please don't scream, love
From what you find
You need to chill, and go take a pill
Get calm I said:

Those ants scurry, love
And I know them you hate
There's a small hole in the tile
Grouters sometimes make mistakes

Then ants scurry, love
Cause I fixed it too late
I say, just take it easy
It's an awful fuss to make

So how many tantrums
Must you have about those little bugs?
They get you riled again
Right now you stomp the floor
Then spray the Raid right on
Then you peel the paint, yeah
It's almost gone
I remind you, calm, I said:

Those ants scurry, love
And I know them you hate
There's a small hole in the wall
Plumbers sometimes make mistakes

Now ants scurry, love
I'll set traps and bait
As they eat crumbs from cake
The floor's filthiness is off the chart
Dirt and steak

No I can't bear to hear you moan
You have conniptions when the small bugs you are shown
But when you eat that pie, you drop the tin
You never sweep, so they come on in
I remind you, calm, I said:

Those ants scurry, love
And I know them you hate
There's a small hole in the wall
Plumbers sometimes make mistakes

The ants scurry, love
Learn to clean off your plate
What a fuss, all the time
Husbands sometimes make mistakes

No love, house is too greasy
But you keep on spraying
Participating in that dumb game
To come to me with fright
They can't do you harm
Turn on the light
You keep fainting
You keep on fainting
The kitchen's greasy
It's so greasy
Get calm I said:

Those ants scurry, love
And I know them you hate
There's a small hole in your head
Lovers sometimes make mistakes

Then ants scurry, love
Cause I fixed it too late
I say, just take it easy
It's an awful fuss to make

Tjhe better title switches on AIR are funnier than some entire parodies, and this is one of them, from the bestial Rick D. 5 ants.

BTW Rick, as warned a coupla weeks ago, I did post an independently-conceived version of "You're 16", but plugged ya in it anyway.

I'm harmless, I swear! Good parody, the title sub was the best. 5 more cans of Raid.
