The Lyrics

Use the sunscreen, people...none of the boys want to date you when you look like leatherface!!! (Not to mention, leatherarms...leatherlegs...etc....=)...)
Just yesterday morning
I fell asleep on the lawn
Because the sun was hot and the breeze was cool
The old timeless warning
"Put some SPF on"
I didn't heed it--no, because I'm a fool

I'm on fire and I'm in pain
I could really use a quick dose of Solarcaine
I wish that I would never see the sun again
I don't think my sunburn will ever mend

Don't you look at me like I'm stupid
Please don't you slap me 'cause I'm red
You've just got to see the pain all over my face
My body's aching and I wish I were dead
I've got blisters in every single place

I'm on fire and I'm in pain
I could really use a quick dose of Solarcaine
I wish that I would never see the sun again
I don't think my sunburn will ever mend

Been saying "I'm fine" 'bout a million times
I can't stand folks pokin' fun
Lord knows when you scald your nose it'll make you wanna frown
I spend all my time on the telephone line--refuse to see anyone
Can't go on dates with my face, it looks just like ground round

Oh, I'm on fire and I'm in pain
I could really use a quick dose of Solarcaine
I wish that I would never see the sun again
I don't think my sunburn will ever mend

Hilarious! The title was just quirky enough for me to give you a 5 on funny, while the few pacing problems were the only bugs on the windshield - 4-5-5.

This is very very nicely done. Very funny idea; subtle, elegant, unforced rhyme; nice incorporation of some original phrases/words.

Been there; sun that. Like many amiright efforts, this is better than the original.
Serafina - June 15, 2004 - Report this comment
Good one! I haven't heard the original in a few years, but I remember it well enough to give you 5-5-5.
Arwen - June 15, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, Leo Jay, Ashkicksass, John B, and Serafina!! You would think after an experience like this, I would learn my lesson...but I still seem to get burned every so often! Thanks again!!!

Arwen, Great job - 5's. I fell asleep while at the beach once when I was 16. Got burned so bad I couldn't get out of bed for 4 or 5 days. Couldn't even handle having a sheet touch the front of my legs. Probably should have seen a Doctor...OUCH!!

The worst sun burn I ever got was on the inside of my ankles (don't ask!) I feel your pain! (literally) Another job well done!

Nice, hot and crispy. Sounds tasty to me.
Arwen - June 15, 2004 - Report this comment
Um...okay, Keith...thanks for stopping by. PAUL...I have had several burns where I honestly was unable to move for days at a time. Okay...by several I mean like 2. And several (meaning like 5) where I was blistered up pretty bad. I used to be such an idiot when it came to being in the sun. I've wisened up, a bit...glad to report. COOKIE...yowza! The ankles had to have killed! I still maintain, however, that, for girls anyway...the shoulders are the worst. Bras are a BEAST when you've got 2nd degree burns to work with. 2NZ...silly...I am ALWAYS hot, (i don't know about crispy) and quite tasty...hehehe...but better golden brown that burnt to a crisp! Thanks to all!!!

You really need some one to look after you 24/7, don't you babe? It sounds like blinking could be potentially hazardous to your health! :-) Hey, luv ya anyway. 555

Thanks, honey. Yeah...I'm a walking disaster. You can be my guardian if you think you're up to the challenge...=)

I never back down from a challenge...especially such a cute one! :-)....I think I'll go and top up my medical insurance first, though....
