The Lyrics

It's the creepiest look, I'm told
If you gave me ten things to hold
I could carry one in each hand
How it happened, I don't understand

Doctor said it's a rare birth defect
Laughed it off, but my life is wrecked
I'm a freak with this many arms
Forty fingers, not counting thumbs

I can swim like I'm sporting fins
Juggle fifty-five bowling pins
But I don't have a normal life
And it's driving me bonkers

But there's one bright side to this madness
Hey you, look at my fingers go
As I put on a show
Take a look at me, all alone I'm like a rock band
These arms really help me out, you know
I've got the best one-man show
Playing five guitars

No girl I've met ever understands
That it's not my fault that I'm all hands
Hate that eight of my arms must hurt
Whenever I wear a shirt

As I try to get on a bus
Driver yells out an impatient cuss
And it's hard to get through the door
Without scraping my knuckles raw

Seems like every single day
Someone gives me a call to say
That they'd like me to come and work
As a freak at the circus

But there's one bright side to this madness
Hey you, look at my fingers go
As I put on a show
Take a look at me, all alone I'm like a rock band
These arms really help me out, you know
I've got the best one-man show
Playing five guitars

Gee ABD, sorry about that disability - but maybe you could write five times as many parodies? ;-D

You mean I haven't written enough parodies lately to satisfy you? Bloody hell. Better get back to work...

The Beatles movie "Help" was originally called "Eight Arms To Hold You".

So what was 'Eight Days A Week' originally called?

'Help Me I'm Weak'?
