The Lyrics

You ever tried walking on wet pavement? Or wet anything smooth enough? Not fun. Unless you collect broken bones, I guess, whatever floats your metaphorical boat.
Man, my toes are hurtin'
Got a skinned knee and that's far from fine
If it bleeds then I'm swearin' toni-ight
Injuries sure ain't slight, oh yeah
And I know you're askin' away
"How did you hit your knees and your toes?"
It's simple, ri-ight, it's been rainy
And that makes the path slippery

Pavement slide, my balance gets thrown off
Don't like that, no, because it hurts a lot
Pavement slide, crash right into the wall
Can't get mad though cause it's kinda my fault

Both my tho-ongs should reti-ire
Cause they're worn almost right through
But I'm too slack to go acqui-ire
A new pair today, oh it's true
Know it's ea-easy to go and buy
But you see, do-on't have the ti-ime
Keep breakin' bones, it's sad, I know, oh
I'm kind of a pathetic bloke

Pavement slide, cause I wear sub-par thongs
Yes, I do know that to you that sounds wrong
Pavement slide, makin' dents in the wall
Look like a dope when on the ground, I'm sprawled

Lot of bumps come every-y day
The pavement dries and I think "Hey
Maybe I'll stop crashin' so" Oh
How naïve I can be, though

Pavement slide, whether it's wet or not
I forget, though, I'm clumsy like an ox
Pavement slide, heads over heels a lot
"Try walkin' slow" I've done that, still get clocked
Pavement slide, done damage to my crotch
That's a low blow, yet not much of a shock
Pavement slide, daily problem I've got
Guess I could go through the grass, I will not
That crap itches a lot
There's bugs in there and dogs
Do bus'ness there a lot
Won't dare traipse through the lawn

Pavement slide
Pavement slide
Pavement slide
Pavement slide hurts like shite
Pavement slide
Pavement slide
Pavement slide

Ever since I had that bout of Guillain–Barré Syndrome four years ago, I've been particularly paranoid about losing my balance and falling right the frig over. Not as paranoid as I am about spiders, but I live in Australia, that's a legitimate fear.
