The Lyrics

Headaches? Get 'em all the time. Toothaches? I wouldn't wish 'em on Bush -- well, I wouldn't wish 'em on the Mets. Backaches? I live in New Jersey and have to shovel snow. Restless leg syndrome? I had it back when it was just called "the jitters." Arthritis? I wish it was a lost art. Health insurance? You have got to be kidding. Only one industrialized country doesn't give it to all its citizens. God bless America.
(Hip-hip-hip-hip-OW!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!
(Oo-woo!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!
(Oo-woo!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!
(Oo-woo!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!
A-hip-hip-hip-hip-hip-hip-hip-hip-boom-boom-boom-boom-boom-boom!
(Ache and throb!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!

I try to get right out of bed
but this pain inside my head
ache and throb!
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!
Eat breakfast, take some pills
hope they're curing all my ills
but still I get those chills!

(Ache and throb!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!
(Oo-woo!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!
(Oo-woo!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!
(Oo-woo!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!
A-hip-hip-hip-hip-hip-hip-hip-hip-boom-boom-boom-boom-boom-boom!
(Ache and throb!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!

And when I see the doctor
he checks me through and through
and that doc never fails to say
if there is any remedy!

And then I go back to the house!
I ache from toes to mouth!
Whining and a-crying.
Know that doctor's lying
'bout the throb...

(That he never could cure!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!
(Oo-woo!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!
(Oo-woo!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!
(Oo-woo!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!
A-hip-hip-hip-hip-hip-hip-hip-hip-boom-boom-boom-boom-boom-boom!
(Ache and throb!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!

(instrumental break)

My head is such an acher.
Circulation don't go through.
And my girl never fails to say
in my head is where the pain all be!

And then I walk out of that house!
Hear that woman's mouth!
Preaching and a-crying
throws her handbag flying!
There's a throb...

(that she caused me to find!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!
(Oh, no!)
Ow-a-wow-ow!
Ow-a-wow-a-wow!
(fade out)
If you was suspicious, the doctor and woman in the preceding parody are completely fictitious. All too often, the pain is all too real.
