The Lyrics

This parody is based on that scene in UHF with Emo Phillips as the woodshop teacher saying: "Call Me Mr. Butterfingers" as he squirts blood all over the place after he cuts off his finger. This is basically the musical version of that scene.
Hammered my thumb
Not cool and it makes me frown
Clobbered my thumb
This fool swung that big mallet down
You’ll hear me scream
The hindrance when I’m making chairs
Hear me scream, I’m feeling dumb
I hammered my thumb

But it gets worse, babe!

Severed my thumb
When sawing logs my hand’s in the way
Slashed through my thumb
In school shop class is such a pain
You’ll see me bleed, Yes you will
Heard that saw buzz now I can’t hold
Anything, Strings I can’t strum
I severed my thumb

Ah, Ah, I’m not alright

There goes my thumb
See it go splat on the floor
Busted my thumb
It’s my weakness, yeah, I’m such a dork
So dang clumsy
Won’t touch that axe for my oaken booth
So clumsy, It makes me glum
I snipped off my thumb

I’m Butterfingers, babe

I heard you shriek, yeah
You look so shocked at your swollen bruise
Next to me your wound is numb
I hacked off my thumb

Yeah, My hand is so light

Lopped off my thumb
Once cried when I was making shelves
Robbed of my thumb, I sigh
Building toys like Santa’s elves
Not filled with glee, No, My digit’s shred
Back in that box filled with frozen food
That’s the key, Stick it back on
Reattach my thumb
The fifteenth time
It gets mauled
Then installed
Makes me queasy, babe
Grab a squeegee, babe
I’m not too bright
I’m so, I’m so ditzy, babe

Mistake: "In shop class is such a pain" should of been "This shop class is such a pain" sorry about that. Forgot to fix it when I was doing the editing.

Years ago, when I was working in a bakery, the foreman warned me about the danger of attempting to clean a cookie slicer. He did so by touching it, cutting himself, and then unleashing a stream of profanity. It sounded like a joke my Dad used to tell, then I got to see it for real.
