The Lyrics

Barry Scott is, of course, the guy in those annoying Cillit-Bang adverts, known for shouting his lines and telling everyone "HI, I'M BARRY SCOTT" as if that should mean something to everyone, when in fact all he's really famous for is... doing the Cillit-Bang adverts. (Like The Simpson's Troy Maclure, except that you won't remember him from anything else at all.) He has a huuuuuge following among frustrated housewives, apparently....
Though that won’t mean a lot
If you’ve never used Cillit-Bang to clean up your bathroom
In apron and rubber gloves
I quickly became the studmuffin everyone loves
I’m getting letters from the housewives
Saying I have changed their whole lives
But my name’s so blah, I could do much better by far

Call me Limescale… Pow! Boy
Makes me sound like a hero so they’ll take me seriously
I like Limescale… Pow! Boy
Better than ‘the guy who does Cillit-Bang ads on TV’
It’s funky and it’s ever so me!

And although it’s bad for my health
I do all of the stunts myself
Everyone loves to see how my penny shines in their front room
Won’t be slandered by anyone
‘Cause my lawyer’s so good it’ll be “Bang! And that dirt is gone!”
But sometimes it don’t mean nada
Did you know I trained at RADA*?
A man of my class needs a name that really kicks ass!

Like The Limescale… Pow! Boy
So goodbye Barry Scott and hello to a brand new me
Now I’m Limescale… Pow! Boy
Hope I don’t go crazy and end up like Pete Doherty**
(Unless I get the groupies for free!)

Hi, I’m Limescale… Pow! Boy
Heck it sounds really cool, even works as a pick-up line!

Limescale… Pow! Boy
Now the chance of stardom in Hollywood will soon be mine!
*The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts - quite possibly the poshest acting school in Britain.
**Perpetually stoned-off-his-face singer and musician, most famous for dating Kate Moss and... being perpetually stoned-off-his-face.

Barry Scott has also been mocked on Dead Ringers as well as the Peter Serafinowicz show. The noisy sod deserves it as well as this parody!

I'm not familiar with the product (it appears to be unique to the UK), but this parody has an excellent title and several good lines, including the nada/RADA couplet.
