The Lyrics

If you have ever had a pair of socks (or drawer full of socks) that were ragged yet you could not throw them out because they were comfortable, this parody is for you!
Unholy, moldy, holey oldies

Alright
I got something to say, yeah
It's better to wear 'em out, yeah
Than throw 'em away
All right
Ew!
Gotta hold your nose
C'mon!

Wake up! Check the drawer
Grab those socks off the floor
They're not clean, the washer's broke
Smell them and you're sure to choke
Put 'em on! (Take 'em off!)
There's no elastic left
My heel shows, I see my toes
They stink like llama sweat
C'mon

(Know what I want?)
What do you want?
(I want you to change your socks)
But I won't
(For God's sake, change your socks)

While these socks feel so right
They're not a pretty sight
While olive drab doesn't look too bright
Long ago they once were white
C'mon

(Know what I want?)
What do you want?
(I want you to change your socks)
No way!
(For God's sake, change your socks)
No!

Socks of ages, socks of ages
Such oldies, full of holes-yeah
Socks of ages, socks of ages
Unholy, growin' mold-yeah

They're smellin' sour, end of story
Do I need new ones? If I need new ones
Say yeah! (Yeah!)
Not yet!

Now check out my feet
They're burnin', burnin', I got some fungus
I know for sure, new socks the cure
Not tough actin' Tinactin or Dr. Scholl's
But I, but I, but I, but I like these worn-in soles, yeah

(Know what I want?)
What do you want?
(I want you to change your socks)
Put a sock in it!
(For God's sake, change your socks)

Socks of ages, socks of ages
Such oldies, full of holes-yeah
Socks of ages, socks of ages
Unholy, growin' mold-yeah

They're smellin' sour, end of story
Do I need new ones? If I need new ones
Say yeah! (Yeah!)
Not yet!
I'm gonna wear these old socks out, woo hoo!
