The Lyrics

youtube

(I didn't mess with some of that stuff at the end where Taco is basically just fartin' around.)

If you're cool but you don't want to go to school
Because your face is havin' fits
Breakin' out in zits

Tryin' diff'rent creams and lotions
But short of a magic potion, it's the pits
Breakin' out in zits

Drawing stares just like the Mona Lisa
Lookin' like a pepperoni pizza
Triple cheese-a

You may need a dermatologist
Then on to a psychologist who knits
Breakin' out in zits

Have you seen those lucky guys
Faces just like custard pies
Smoother than a baby's rear
A complexion crystal clear

Stridex, and Clearasil tubes
No sex, or feelin' real boobs
Seems your only fate
Is a five-fingered date

So you're jealous of the unblemished fellas
You'd like to dynamite to bits
Breakin' out in zits

Girls all think that you're just a dodo
Who looks like Quasimodo doused with grits
Breakin' out in zits

Looking like you washed your face with Draino
As your head erupts like a volcano
Oh, the pain-o

Dating chicks with vision impairment
Or hicks who think "au pair" meant
Someone's tits
Breakin' out in zits

(tap dance break)

Tryin' every cure to set your skin free
Lookin' like the ass on Oprah Winfrey
Freaky-deaky

If you have a face that looks like
The place where the Nazis undertook the blitz
Breakin' out in zits
Breakin' out in zits
Breakin' out in zits
Breakin' out in zits

Ooze...
Ooze...

Comic sans...
Comic sans...

If you're cool but you don't want to go to school
Because your face just called it quits
Breakin' out in zits...
Breakin' out in zits...
Breakin' out in zits...

Interesting that you mention the Nazis because the song is by Berlin.

Porfle, I think you took my pizza suggestion and went too far in another direction! 555! Btw, Blitz should be capitalized ;-D

Just wanted to be the first to congratulate you on your posted Fragment as even I get tired of seeing my name there almost every week!!!

Thanks, yeah I came up with the first verse but couldn't see being able to stretch it into a whole parody!
