The Lyrics

Possibly the most overplayed song of the 60's or any decade since. Finally,
an antidote to all those good vibes.
(Bass & Guitar intro)

Once we were all younger boys
Faces clear and clean
Then the years soon cracked our voice
When we became thirteen
And our goal was to destroy
Blackheads, zits obscene

Come on, pimple now
Pop in the mirror
If it's bloody, get a Kleenex
Wipe it off, face is clearer
Right now

Zits may come and zits may go
Squeeze 'em and they blast
Stress can cause them to appear
As a rosaceous rash
Burgers, fries and chocolate malts:
Zits on pimpled ass

Come on, pimple now
Pop in the mirror
If it's bloody, get a Kleenex
Wipe it off, face is clearer
Right now

Come on, pimple now
Pop in the mirror
If it's bloody, get a Kleenex
Wipe it off, face is clearer
Right now

(Guitar solo--squishing noises--scrubbing noises---splashing noises--more
squishing noises)

Come on, pimple now
Pop in the mirror
If it's bloody, get a Kleenex
Wipe it off, face is clearer
Right now

(Repeat intro)

Saw my dermatologist
Knew she'd understand:
"Listen---
That's one grotesque sebaceous cyst
And one infected gland--
Just one fee, I'll pop them both,
Prepare them to be lanced..."

Come on, pimple now
Pop in the mirror
If it's bloody, get a Kleenex
Wipe it off, face is clearer
Right now

I said....

Come on, pimple now
Pop in the mirror
If it's bloody, get a Kleenex
Wipe it off, face is clearer
Right now
Right now
Right now

Just really good, Bob. I remember this tune, it did get overplayed but it still is better than most of the head-bangin' crap nowadays. 555

Jack: You can't be over twenty and not have heard the original. It's just impossible unless you're a cave dweller. Johnny D: I knew I could count on you to squeeze a good pun out of this one. Merry: thanks, you know me too well. I've had two songs rejected by this site and they were both about guess what. Alvin: you'll see by Spaff.com's Snow White parody that sex has not been banned altogether. Discretion is the order of the day. Diva: as a former pimply faced kid and father of a former pimply faced kid, I sympathize. Paul: thanks, dude, and I agree it's a great song. The problem I have is getting it out of my head after hearing it. It sticks like glue. Thanks for all the kind comments, AmiRighters. d;:^)

Ha ! "grotesque sebaceous cyst" - and here I was thinking I had done well to work "nitrogen narcosis" into a parody ! Good one!

Thanks, dear Pippin. I never underestimate the intelligence of parody readers and writers. d;:^)

An excellent mockery. But I agree with Paul above. The original (or parody for that matter) is far better than the awful assembly line junk today. Are you a dermatologist?
Mari D - February 24, 2004 - Report this comment
Yuck! But it's very well written, Bob. I especially like the substitution of "pimple" for "people."
