The Lyrics

This song is based on an incident reported from Madrid in 2012: a man got struck in the scrotum by a lightning bolt. Apart from it being difficult to understand how this is physically and/or anatomically possible, how unlucky can you be?
Great Balls o’ Fire by Jeffrey Moran

You zapped my nerves, set my legs aflame.
A lightning bolt, from the sky it came.
Like on a grill, ooh, what a thrill.
Goodness gracious, great balls o’ fire.

I’m just walking down a street in Spain.
Suddenly, I’m wracked with pain.
The family jewels, oh, life is cruel.
Goodness gracious, great balls o’ fire.

Lightning struck my scrotum, wooo, it don’t feel good.
Hold my babas, and I screamed in agony like a baby would.
Unlucky? Bet your ducky.
Sometimes the world is sucky, sucky, sucky, sucky , , ,

I’m never, ever walking down that street
Without wearing insulators on my feet.
My babas burned, lesson learned.
Goodness gracious, great balls o’ fire.

(Repeat last two.)

I'll bet that was quite a shock to the poor man when it happened! 5's

More like "Great Balls ON Fire."

Lightning strikes to the head or chest are more likely to be fatal, but there are lots of survivors. Strikes to the midsection can occur but still may leave substantial burns and disability. Couldn't find media reports of outcome of your protagonist. Was he up to walking down the street again?

Lightning bolt, eh? Still probably a lot less dangerous than McDonald's hot coffee in a Drive-through :-))
