The Lyrics

Part of my "How We Do It" self-challenge. We all make bad jokes from time to time, both in the sense of a horrendous pun and just being a dick. The first time, though, can be a shock, sometimes especially to the person making it...

Normally zip my mouth tight, let out only air
But my one moment came by (woo), man, I just couldn't leave it there
No skills as a punner, more of a slapstick geek
And I think that I proved that's where my brain should be

Sorry for that bad joke, I feel like an asshole
Wordplay that forced hurts, won't be mad if I'm slapped
Cause I'm feelin' really dirty, think I'll go and bury
My Big Book O' Jokes, don't deserve to own that

You wanna send daggers through me? Be my friggin' guest
Whether that's literal or not, believe me, I get
Why you're disgusted, not happy with me, mate
Knew that my words would hurt, yet I set them free

Sorry for that bad joke, came off as an asshole
Rare that I'm a jerk, now on me, term's been stamped
Now forever I'm not worthy to be a good buddy
You're scared that I'll go and, once more, be a twat

So I fear I'm "the douchehole", don't you see I'm a jerk?
Made an off-colour joke, man, friendship, don't deserve
You've heard things more offensive? I don't doubt that you're right, mmm
Don't care what I said there? I'll accept that in time

Sorry for that bad joke, still feel like an asshole
You may have heard worse, that's the worst kind of grand
May keep sayin' that you heard me, your right not to worry
But I still feel lower than a mole's last crap (woo)
A good friend to know that I didn't mean that (sorry for that bad joke)
Hate to be an asshole
Least I didn't swerve (made zero swerve) to "too sensitive" crap

This has happened to me, though I usually just bury my head in my hands instead of bursting into song. And I especially would burst into the worst country song since Cruise.
