The Lyrics

Before you go to Breakfast Club you need to take a shower... In Shower Club... Wait...
Hate! Hate! Hate! Hate!
Ooooooooohhh... Whooooaaaa...

Shampooed... My hair and I'll scream
Heat makes me groan... Yelping... Cause then it's freezing
Yelling... In bubbles, I'll shout
That's why my mornings... Each day make me pout there's
No range between boiling and frost
Stinks when the water stings and makes me burn my buns
Deranged, The temp's off the charts
Hate my fight since this shower part's crappy

Why'd that... faucet torture me?!
Why, Why, Why, Why
Why'd that... faucet torture me?!

I can't stand that hot stream
When it sprays it tries to kill me
Keeps me sprawling... When I'm brawling...
Knobs... knobs... knobs...
Water agonized me
Mauled by flames or drenched in ice
Now I'm crawling... Hear me bawling:
"Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!"

Hate! Hate! Hate! Hate!
Ooooooooohhh... Whooooaaaa...

Skin's blue since it offends
Feet are leaping, I'm pinned to the edge
It dis-arms me and I'm caught defenseless
Panicking in lavatories

Why'd that... faucet attack me?!
Chilled to the bone, Ranting while bathing daily
Flowing just fine at the start
Then I cuss as I lather my parts: "Dammit!"

Why'd that... faucet abuse me?!
Why, Why, Why, Why
Why'd that... faucet assault me?!

Each dawn I have cried
Since I'm being maimed
With each splash I'm fried
Hear me scream in pain
Then ice goes down the drain
See my bulging eyes
In shock I'll exclaim:
"This shower's so lame!"

I'll shriek:
Hot... Hot! Hot! Hot! Hot-ot!
Hot! Hot! Hot! Hot-ot!
Hot! Hot! Hot! Hot! Hot! Hot! Hot! Hot! Hot!
Cold... Cold! Cold! Cold! Cold-old!
Cold! Cold! Cold! Cold-old!
Cold! Cold! Cold! Cold! Cold! Cold! Cold! Cold!
Yikes... Yikes! Yikes! Yikes! Yike-ikes!!
Yikes! Yikes! Yikes! Yike-ikes!
Yikes! Yikes! Yikes! Yikes! Yikes! Yikes! Yikes! Yikes! Yikes!
Wish I could stay dry!

Well, you could do Katy Perry's "Hot N Cold" too to this subject I guess. Felt a bit stressed to push in one extra syllable everywhere between "faucet" and "me" IMHO, but I'm not one to sing in the shower so what do I know.

Peter = I'm a bit confused as to what you're referring to. They say "Forget about me" in the original song "faucet" and "forget" are two syllable words: "about" and "torture"/ "assault"/ "abuse" & "attack" are also all two syllable words. All together it is a 5 syllable phrase between both parties. Perhaps they pronounce faucet differently other than how I'm accustomed to it which is "faw-cet" such in the name: "Farrah Fawcett"

my Simple Mind enjoyed this! 5s

That was not my best comment - obviously! I think it was the use of "torture" over "about" that first threw me off a little while following along. While technically both are two syllable words "about"s are both soft while "torture"s are both hard. Also, the following word "me" in TOS is also soft (and short) so while pronouncing the two syllables of "torture" TOS pretty much gets done with the whole line and I had to stress to catch up. This is a VERY minor complaint and I still voted 555. I'll shut up now.
