The Lyrics

I know you well, and I can tell
There's something on your nose
Don't throw a fit, but it's a zit
And in the dark it glows

You've tried peroxide
And salicylic acid
And found they're not enough anymore

You've got the acne zit from hell
And I know it very well
Because I used to have it when I was your age
When you've got acne zits from hell
There's no cream and there's no gel
That can make the hellish acne go away

They're on your face, you can't erase
The pimples small and large
And in the mirror, your greatest fear
They're starting to discharge

You dread the whiteheads
That look like snow capped mountains
And spurt like fountains when they're pinched

You've got the acne zits from hell
And I know them very well
Because I used to have them when I was your age
When you've got acne zits from hell
There's no cream and there's no gel
That can make the hellish acne go away

ABC3A - It's a bit gross and I dktos, but it looks well executed anyway. Salicylic acid will probably get you high marks from some if it does, in fact, fit with the song. Which I don't know.

(ABC3) Excellent rhymes and I give you props for working in "Salicylic Acid" as well as well as "peroxide". I think there is more to the song than what you have here, but nice work all the same.

ABC--I was blessed enough to say that I never regularly suffered from bad acne growing up...but I've had a few episodes in my time that allow me to relate to...and enjoy this parody quite a bit!
