The Lyrics

What's that buzzin 'round in my suit
Some jellyfish, they're stingin' too
Stingin' me with swingin' hands
I am really in a jam
I came here to surf
Now I can't squirm fast enough
I should have stayed on turf
'Cause the sign warned of bad stuff

Wet Suit Riot
Gotta get them out of here
Wet Suit Riot
Gettin' cold, feelin' really weird

I went through some waves and thought they were gone
But soon I found out that I was so wrong
They're still stingin', I don't understand
So right off the beach I ran
Left the suit in my car
In the trunk is where they are
I won't open it
Because I would not get far

Wet Suit Riot
Gotta get them out of here
Wet Suit Riot
Gettin' cold, feelin' really weird

Left the suit in my car
In the trunk is where they are
I won't open it
Because I would not get far

Wet Suit Riot
Gotta get them out of here
Wet Suit Riot
Gettin' cold, feelin' really weird

I'm in a Wet Suit Riot

(ABC) Evidently i gave this a 555 the first time around. I don't remember that at all! How did i forgive the attempted rhyme of "Turf" and "Stuff"? :) Oh well.

Thanks Agri. Turf rhymes with surf, and stuff rhymes with enough. It's the rhyme scheme of the song.

(ABCW) I haven't heard TOS in ages but the choruses scan perfectly and it is funny (even though I've had a jellyfish get past my wetsuit before which was decidedly NOT funny!) so all 5s.

(ABC) I was boogie-boarding at NC's Outer Banks one summer and was stung by a jellyfish --- maybe if I'd been wearing a wet suit, things would have turned out differently ... (then Johnny D reads this parody) ... oh ... well, on second thought...

Thanks Johnny.

ABCW - I keep saying "Put little doors in westuits to let the stray jellyfish out" but does anyone listen? No! - I sympathise Larry - 555
Rick C - February 05, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC05) I too haven't heard the OS in a while but, found this easy to sing along with and, as I mentioned above, it was funny.

It was good, but i think too maney of the lyrics were too close to the origanal zoot suit roit. 454
