The Lyrics

I feel like a jerk
I went and banged on my thumb today
It got in the way
That's why I banged on my thumb today

Ever since I was a little lad
I wasn't real handy
I hurt myself bad
I took a nail with my wall hangin' plan
Then I took one swing
Now they're X-raying my hand- that's why

I feel like a jerk
I went and banged on my thumb today
It got in the way
That's why I banged on my thumb today

I am so clumsy, I feel like a fool
The doctor told me I should never use tools
If I go sawing some plywood in the yard
When the blood starts to spurt
I'm in the emergency ward
And that's why

I feel like a jerk
I went and banged on my thumb today
It got in the way
That's why I banged on my thumb today

Listen to me.

Every week when my wife says “Do this!”
I injure my ankle
I fracture my wrist
So I get my bandage and go back to bed
And that helpless little woman does the chores instead
Yessir!

I'm not such a jerk
I went and banged on my thumb today
I got to go play
That's why I banged on my thumb today

I can bang that thumb
Hey do you wanna fake an injury?
I can sit here all day

Like I said: Prong thumb, ooh! Every office knows one. Take five points and one Vicodin and call me in the morning.
