The Lyrics

Part of my "Living The Fantasy" self-challenge. It's incredibly warm where I am right now. Doesn't help that my air con is broken. Thus, parody about getting unfathomably sunburnt, to remind me it could always be worse or something. Enjoy!
Wish that it was cold
On heat, I'm not sold
Cause the sun burnt me
From head to my soles
I'd prefer some hail
Or a freezing gale
May not have a ball
But just hear this tale

Slathered that sunscreen goo
All over me, it's true
Thought it would save my hide
40-plus was a lie
This shade does not suit me
The flaking's just icky
I hate that blasted sun
Nearly burnt off my bum

Oh, I felt the heat
Too much, that's no lie
Look at my peelin' hide
Just see my peelin' hide
This flaking's gross
I'm no reptile
I hate this peelin' hide
Can't stand this peelin' hide

Ain't burnt all
I've no sunburnt balls
I guess ev'ry cloud's
Silvered after all
Though I'm still in pain
Red as Hellboy's face
Hope that there's no drought
Of cool water, mate

Flaked skin falls on the ground
When I sneeze or frown
This isn't dandruff, dude
Can't you see my skin's rouge?
Don't know the cure, help me
Google it for me, please
I can't type cause it hurts
My fingertips are burnt

The sun's intense heat
It has left me fried
Check out my peelin' hide
Look at my peelin' hide
I'd need a hose
To cool down, right
Might help my peelin' hide
My sunburnt peelin' hide

Typical, I'd get baked
When I went outside, mate
Normally in my hole
A shut-in, I've been told
An old friend asked me, right
To, for once, go outside
I did on a lark, now
I wish I didn't, wow

I'm burnt from my feet
To my aching eyes
I've got a peelin' hide
Look at my peelin' hide
Wish I could float
My soles hurt, right
Part of my peelin' hide
It's all my peelin' hide

Just imagine...dragons! Awesome thoughts keep the pain away, maybe.

Don't know the OS so I can't comment on pacing. Very descriptive and a lot of people would like to trade places with you.

Nicely done... or should I say "well done"? (heh heh) "40-plus was a lie" and "Nearly burnt off my bum" were my favorite lines. 555
