The Lyrics

Never had an ingrown toenail, but this is how I think it would feel........
I've got an ingrown toenail
It feels so bad, that is my tale
It's growing right into my foot
Feel like I'm completely kaput

Ow Ow, Ow Ow, Ow Ow, ouch ouch
Ow Ow, Ow Ow, Ow Ow, ouch ouch
Ow Ow, Ow Ow, Ow Ow, ouch ouch
Ow Ow, Ow Ow, Ow Ow

It's really becoming dangerous
How my foot feels, it's so heinous
Well at least it's not contagious
Oh, these problems, how they pain us
Ingrown toenail
My foot has failed
Hurts in wind gales
And in the hail
No!

Went to the doctor, he went
And yanked it out, my foot's bent
Got no nail there, hope one will grow
When that will happen, I don't know

Ow Ow, Ow Ow, Ow Ow, ouch ouch
Ow Ow, Ow Ow, Ow Ow, ouch ouch
Ow Ow, Ow Ow, Ow Ow, ouch ouch
Ow Ow, Ow Ow, Ow Ow

Now it hurts much more than before
Think my foot will always be sore
Doctor yanked the nail from the core
It feels like there's something he tore
Ingrown toenail
On me it bailed
Foot looks so pale
Walk like a snail
No!

And I forget just why it hurts
And everyday it just feels worse
Where are the drugs? They're hard to find
They ease the pain, help me unwind

Ow Ow, Ow Ow, Ow Ow, ouch ouch
Ow Ow, Ow Ow, Ow Ow, ouch ouch
Ow Ow, Ow Ow, Ow Ow, ouch ouch
Ow Ow, Ow Ow, Ow Ow

When it grows back, will feel better
Won't grow into my foot, never
These solutions aren't too clever
At least now the nail is severed
Ingrown toenail
It hurts to sail
These drugs taste stale,
Want a good nail
Yeah, that was my tale
Yeah, that was my tale
Yeah, that was my tale
Yeah, that was my tale
Yeah, that was my tale
Yeah, that was my tale
Yeah, that was my tale
Yeah, that was my tale
Yeah, that was my tale

As a ingrown toenail sufferer, I say good job.

DKTOS, but I think this parody is hilarious anyway!

Best ingrown toenail parody I've seen on the site. The only one I've seen, but still the best. Pacing was a bit off, but I've had about four operations for those things, so I can relate. I really don't notice how much you casually kick things until you get one.

SOTM - DKTOS and this song is done so much on the site. I keep telling myself I have to get familiar with this song, even though I am sure I have probably heard it but just don't recognise it here. I probably should get familiar with Stacey's Mom (the parody not the mom) as well because I am sure that I am robbing myself of some real wholesome entertainment. I'll try and get a listen to this one before the voting ends so I can be more objective.

(SOTM) My nickname in my younger years was 'Luke Bra-toenail'. A toe-tally ripping parody here, Phil!

SOTM--Having suffered an ingrown toenail or two in my time...I can say, at least, that I feel your pain.

Painful to read.

(SOTM) This gets so annoying... what if there were 100 entries? You'd have 100 SOTMs to enter... 100 comments. Wow. Anyway. Good job, even though I dktos

SOTM DKTOS Good job.

Thanks for all the nice comments.

A high school gym teacher actually sat us down and instructed us to cut our toenails straight across, not rounded. I've never had an ingrown toenail since. (And I'll bet anyone $10 you never knew you'd get helpful podiatric advice like that by reading the comments on a Nirvana parody.)
Phil Alexander - September 20, 2004 - Report this comment
What Spaff said - it's better to have sharp edges to your toenails that go through your socks in ten minutes flat than ingrowing toenails...

(SOTM) I think ingrown toenails could explain a lot of coreography in todays videos... or Michael Jackson's moonwalk for that matter. :-)

Phil, you have taken a highly overrated song and turned it into something decent!
Meriadoc - September 30, 2004 - Report this comment
(SOTM) DKTOS and the one that was sent to me was screwed up even before the singing began...so I am sorry I cannot vote on this one.

(AUG SOTM) - Well, I know the Tori Amos cover-version, and while I know the pacing is 180 degrees different the lyrics are about 95% the same. Good job - 5's across. And thanks to Spaff (and his HS gym teacher) for the Podiatric tip...
