The Lyrics

The most frequently embarrassed experience for teens everywhere…no amount of ProActiv can cure.
[Instrumental Intro]


Now I’m in this teen’s awkward phase
Makes me ashamed to be seen in public
I walk through the halls with pus and bruise
Red pustules had turned me to a grunged chick
Greased my face with bad complexion
Gave me the wrong impression
Pimples grown bad
(Bad, bad, bad)
So fried are my glands
(Oh, so bad!)
They’ve grown from my shoulder to back
(Shoulder through back)
Like those molds, there’s more spores to be land
(Spores have landed)

Now there’s some bad things known to teen
When peers treat you slightly mean
When zits pop around… they break out all around
Oh, no…not again, no!

My forehead appears to have acne
They happen to camouflage my beauty
Foundation: this blotch I try to hide
More others throw taunts, they would act so rudely
Wished I hadn’t scarfed on fast food
Now I’m so ashamed to walk nude
All covered with “spores”
(Blackheads: more)
So large are my pores
(Larger those pores)
I look like a human dart board
(Bull’s eye they’ve scored)
All those rumors, they’re spreading the word
(Spreading the words)


There's more sad things known to teen
Makes our stomachs turn so green
More zits pop around…don’t stop growing around!
Oh, no!

No more Proactiv will
Try to keep those papules rid
All those spots I try to hide
Couldn’t hide even if I try
Pimples pop around
Look like crater-faced clown
No way, no way!

No rest till I clear up my face
A need for clear complexion
I’d have a great impression
In time my face have cleared
All those pimples disappeared
Now I’m really glad…not feeling so bad…

IDNKTOS, but this certainly captures the shame felt by afflicted teens. At least they have the hope that maturity will clear their skin; when "age spots" appear decades later, they'll just keep getting worse and more numerous. Fine parody! 5s

Thanks lots, BJM and John! :)

Barry - Very true, you just can't win with skin blemishes! Hope none would grow polyps!

John - Poppin' ya thanks! :)

Takes me back to those painful sessions in the dermatologist's office...or having a zit erupt in class...

Thanks lots, Porfle! :)...I can imagine. Speaking of which, I went to a day spa and this dermatologist/aesthetician was making negative comments on my face telling me that the fact that I have blockheads on my face is that I scarf on fast food, french fries...kind of reminds me in one of the Roseanne episodes! Yeah, zits are definitely embarrassing. I had my share of acne and "bacne" in high school, even though it's fun scratching my back with acne.

(Ages) The worst kind of zits are the ones that appear on your lip. They sting like the dickens, they do, whatever the dickens is. Great parody here, something a lot of people could relate to. 555!

Ages...nothing worse than a prominent zit...even now, in my 30s! This was fun, though...nice work!

I once had a zit on my earlobe that was so big I could feel it on both sides! (True story). Nice job showing how embarrassing acne really is!

(AofA) Love Smokey! And I like this parody a lot! I can totally relate! LOL!

So glad I am no longer in High School (my sister who is a recent graduate still deals with acne problems) but thankfully for some reason God was always gracious when it came to giving me pimples. I hardly ever had them.
