The Lyrics

I wrote this before I realized Michael Pacholek had already done "I'm Gonna Be Berated" ( Similar titles, but different subject matter.
Peni- peni- penitents are my heroes.
I wanna be berated.
They just sit there and takes the blows.
I wanna be berated.

Just get me in a hair shirt that gives me pain,
Hairy, hairy hairy, like an old mule's mane.
Then rap my fingers like I'm a nun's bane.
Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow ow!


I wanna feel that hairshirt rubbin' 'gainst skin's grain.
Hare, Hare Krishnas as I board the plane
Try to sell me flowers. . .can take only so much pain.
Hare, hare, hare, hare.


I put one in a wheelchair when I broke his toes.
"Hardy-hardy-har" was how my laugh did go.
I guess I like to dish out as well as take the blows
Pow, pow, pow, pow, pow!


But now I'm feeling guilty; off to penance I go.
Hurt me, hurt me hurt me like a gone-loco Moe
Who's shoving his whole finger up Curly's exposed nose.

"Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba bad boy!" I wanna be berated. (4x)

I won't berate you for borrowing the title. Like we say here in New Jersey: No inquest, no foul.
