The Lyrics

Blame it all on my roots from big Celtic brutes
For skin that's so damnably fair
Everybody knows I'm so white I glow
And both my legs cast a definite glare
Till one day when I reached that nice nudie beach
And I doffed my clothes without shame
Next morning I knew that wasn't too smart to do
And you heard me screaming in pain

'Cause I'm sunburned in strange places
Burning way on down and there's sand chafing my skin away
And I'm not okay
Oh, I'm not sure that I can take this
Is there any way I can medicate this?
Oh, I'm sunburned in strange places

So I guess it was wrong to drop that sarong
It's not like I'd been there before
I must look a fright, I'm no longer white
My nipples are awfully sore
I just tried to land a Coppertone tan
Until my sunscreen finally failed
Well, that's I fried like a delicate flower
And I'm gonna WAIL

'Cause I'm sunburned in strange places
Burning way on down and there's sand chafing my skin away
And I'm not okay
Oh, I'm not sure that I can take this
Is there any way I can medicate this?
Oh, I'm sunburned in strange places

Guess I stayed out too long, the sun was too strong
I hadn't tried it before
If I stay out of the light, I might be all right
I'll try not to fry anymore
But till I don't seem to watch where I lean
Just treat me like I'm made of glass
Please watch where you hug me if I show at the bar
And don't you touch my ass!

'Cause I'm sunburned in strange places
Burning way on down and there's sand chafing my skin away
And I'm not okay
Oh, I'm not sure that I can take this
Is there any way I can medicate this?
Oh, I'm sunburned in strange places

(C'mon, naked people, sing along!)

'Cause I'm sunburned in strange places
Burning way on down and there's sand chafing my skin away
And I'm not okay
Oh, I'm not sure that I can take this
Is there any way I can medicate this?
Oh, I'm sunburned in strange places

This is excellent, Ravyn Rant!. I'm so pale I get a sun tan just from my 4 watt night light. Here's some SPF 555.

I'm singing along. (I follow instructions well.) Fave line: "Is there any way I can medicate this?" But it's all grrrreat stuff.

Thanks, Spaff! Personally I prefer the "fried like a delicate flower" line - I like the way it stacks up against the original lyric.

DKTOS, but the subject was so interesting! People have said they need sunglasses to look at my bare legs! I loved the medicate this part! Good job.

Ravnrant, I know you, and this could have worked for "Looking for love in all the wrong places" too. I liked though, talk to u soon, xoxo

My thoughts? Amazing! It's great, really. Now we need a special recording, maybe starting off with some Celtic background music, which morphs itself to the main melody, before the singing starts with a group of Celtic singers. But it's just a suggestion, really.
