Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

A song about head lice.
I can feel them crawling in my hair tonight, oh gross
I had hoped that it was only lint so white, oh gross
I can feel them crawling in my hair tonight, oh gross, oh gross.
Well, if you told me it was just lint
I would not itch so bad
You'd better go and by some Rid
"Cause I certainly am one itchy kid.
Well, in the store all the lines are so long
They stretch out about half a mile
But when you pull in the drive, my hair's washed; I'm fine
The nits came off in a pile.

But I can feel them crawling in my hair tonight, oh gross
I had hoped that it was only lint so white, oh gross
I can feel them in my hair tonight, oh gross, oh gross
I had hoped that it was only lint so white, oh gross

Well I remember, I remember not to scratch
My scalp is so very red, and I wish, I wish I,were old and dead.
Asking what's the reason why this treatment didn't work, and you told me
The bottle says it takes two washes
You'll feel better then, you will see.

But I can feel them crawling in my hair tonight, oh gross....

Yeah, this one's better than mine. Consider entering this one in Johnny's "Gross Contest"! (see Messageboard Parody Contests thread) 555

SOTM DKTOS, but it was a funny read.

SOTM - Good poetic 'lice-ence'. I liked this one but somehow missed it when it first aired.
Phil Alexander - October 08, 2004 - Report this comment
D'Oh, Guy... you got there before me with the "lice-ence" comment! I'm reduced to making a comment in German: Hairlick (or something like that)
Rick D - October 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Well, you know why Phil Collins is never going to sing it.
Arwen - October 08, 2004 - Report this comment
SOTM--I...uh...have had my fair share of critter incidents (see my collected works)...but if I ever got lice I think that would be the last straw. Camel's dead...bleah. 5s, Joelle...

After reading Rick Duncan's SOTM entry, I saw this title and thought it was going to be about something else. But this is funnier (and ickier) than that would have been. Good job. Next up: "Someone Sprayed My Lice Tonight."

(SOTM) see above...still a classic grossout.

(SOTM) You've won three 5s from this Instant Scratchie!

(SOTM): Isn't it forbidden to kill head lice now, with all these laws about stopping cruelty to animals...

I hear vaseline and a shower cap works (see "Blighted by the Lice" by Mari Duncan). Good job. And funny comment, Rick.
John Jenkins - October 16, 2004 - Report this comment
Well done, Joelle. Good imagery and good finish.
Paul Robinson - October 17, 2004 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Very lice...errr...nice job here, Joelle...5's across my itchy scalp as I read this...
Melhi - October 17, 2004 - Report this comment
SOTM -- I certainly can't nitpick this one to death... great job!
