The Lyrics

One of my favorite episodes of BTVS "Once More, With Feeling" was done as a musical. The creator, Joss Whedon, wrote all the songs and directed. This is the opening song, sung by Sarah MIchelle Gellar and vampires.
Every single night
The same appointment
Squeeze the tube and rub it in
How I love to hate
This smelly ointment
For my muscle ache
Rub it in my skin
Working out all day and now I pay
For gallons of Ben Gay

Yes I've been
Going through the lotion
Or I'd go insane
It's the only thing that soothes the pain

I was quite a jock
And so athletic
Seems that I am getting old
Now my ankles lock
I have arthritis
And I'm always cold

And he's growing mold-

That is what I'm told

Boy, I hate that gel, that awful smell
And you can really tell
That he's been
Going through the lotion
Smears it everywhere
Puts it in weird places, yes I swear!

These pains are just quite the bummer
I am Pfizers' best cust-ummer

Wife: He could really use..

Hubby: A hummer!

I don't want to be
Going through the lotion
Buying all this cream
But I'm sore today
I need more Ben Gay
In a tube or spray

I scream!

Hey, I remember catching a few scenes of that episode. It was over the top. Good job here, Highlander.

I've got that episode on tape, and it is great! I love musicals, and this came 13th in Channel 4's Top 100 Musicals!
