Story about this misheard lyric by: Ken Collins

I put the non cover of 'Discipline' on whenever my 5-year-old daughter gets too rowdy, and we sing along. She came up with the misheard lyric. She also appreciates that Boyd Rice is an avid Barbie collector.

Scary Song Lyrics:

"Hamburger Lady"
The Lyrics:
She's dying
She is burned from the waist up
On her arm
Her ear is burned off,
her nose is burned off,
her eyelashes are burned,
her fingers are burned
She can't hold anything up
and with medical advances,
there's no end in sight
for the hamburger lady
The song's lyrics were based off an doctor's report of a lady with burnt skin, so burnt that it looked like hamburger meat. That is all that should be said.
