The Lyrics

It feels so weird to not give a featuring credit to Thom Yorke, but I credit who gets credited and he wasn't for some reason. Anyway, uncomfortable clothes: dress edition! Let's go!
I can feel it
The sheer discomfort, seams are too strong
Good lord, it hurts now
No, I don't like it
Can't you see?
Doesn't hug me gently, a soft squeeze
No, it's a big pain, it's evil
This dress I'm in, it blows
This thing is not a fit for me (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
It's simply not a fit for me

Shoulder blades feel locked up
Hear the crunch as I move, baby
It's painful, I bleed
Straps dig into me
Wish that weren't seen
But the lines of blood that's drippin'
Are there plain, no red cloth on
This dress I'm in, it blows
The damage that it does to me (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
It can't be all that good for me

This thing is not a fit for me (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
It's simply not a fit for me

Design is awful (it looks pretty awful)
In a first-draft state (all over the place, who said okay?)
Colours are strange now, baby (no thank you)
No thank you (torn-to-shreds look with this bare skin)
These random patches of bare skin (no rude parts seen now)
No bad parts seen now (wouldn't be surprised if we get a malfunction)
Wouldn't be surprised (fits too tightly, the strain will start it burstin')
Despite the tightness, you'll see that (soon you'll see bits, oh)
Damn dress I'm in, it blows
Not worth the money you bet me (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
That I could wear it and not scream (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
At least I don't have heels on me (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
'Cause then there'd be charges for me

Was considering a "turns out a dude's wearing the dress" twist but a) too obvious and 2) "haha, crossdressing" isn't as funny to me as it used to be.

Weird Al's "Truck Drivin' Song" will NEVER cease to be funny.
