The Lyrics

This parody is semi-autobiographical. Just to clear up: I am actually adressing a pair of gloves in this song.
my hands are scarred, and you're to blame,
darlings, you give gloves a bad name

a silken touch is what you sell
you promise me tenderness but my skin swells
those velcro straps got a hold on me
I'm pulling the fingers but I can't break free

oh, can't get nothing done
oh, rash is no fun
the doctor can't save me
the damage is done

chorus:
my hands are scarred, and you're to blame
you give gloves a bad name
the freezing starts but warmth you can't maintain
you give gloves a bad name

that quality fiber is already ripped
icy blue nails on my fingertips
minus zero degrees, I can almost cry
thermal insulation is one big fat lie

oh, and I paid a ton
oh, my fingers are numb
I've gone suicidal
but can't hold my gun

chorus

you give gloves, oh

chorus x2

you give gloves
you give gloves, whoa
a bad name
you give gloves, whoa
a bad name

Just to be clear: This isn't about the Mets, Michael Jackson or O.J. Simpson?

No, it ain't. Maybe I'm being a dunce right now, but why do you ask?

I cannot say I've had such a problem with gloves myself, but I guess this one is funny.
