The Lyrics

Pop a Couple Zits

Have you seen the other guys rubbin’ on some ladies thighs
If you’ve got some love to give, go get you some ProActiv
You’re sad, well not exactly, but man ya got bad acne
That line took some time it was real hard to rhyme

If you’re young, can‘t get dates, though well-hung
Try to deodorate your foul pits
‘N pop a couple zits

Different gals all shoot you down, mock your pals
Don’t give in to frowns, or throw fits
Pop a couple zits

Your skin looks like sauce on fettucine
Try to not get beat up by a meanie (teeny weenie)

Just get fixed like other fellers who get chicks
‘N get to smell ‘er and rub tits
Pop a couple zits

Disgustingly hilarious. Somehow, tho', I'm picturing this version being sung by Gene Wilder and Peter Boyle rather than Fred Astaire. :-)

My first reaction was ewww! It was very funny, but the eww factor remained. It could have used more of the lyrics. From experience, I know that the OS is longer.

Thanks guys... It's funny... I really didn't think this was all that funny... but I thought I nailed the meter... the only problem I had was around "deodorate" - (which BTW I thought was in keeping with the creative license used in the OS on words like "umberellas") But other than that slight squish it all metered perfectly for me. I used a you tube clip of the movie scene with Astaire doing this song and this was all the lyrics used there. There probably are longer versions... Thanks again guys... Funny how we all see things differently.
