The Lyrics

As sure as the sky is blue, there's some obnoxious boy trying to shove bugs in a girl's face in an attempt to squick her out. But sometimes that girl simply will not rise...
You're a jerk, should be pretty clear
Ev'ry time you are near
You ask me "This doesn't seem
Gross to you?"
I try hard to ignore each time
There's dead flies in my eyes
With your plea "This doesn't seem
Gross to you?"

Can't just be because you're bored, takes time to put together
A big bucket full of bugs and sticky goo
I'm sick of the way they're shoved in my face, stop
Can't you tell that I'm not squicked, dude?

You should have worked it out by now (out by now)
It's the truth (it's the truth), cut it out (cut it out)
Don't ask me "This doesn't seem
Gross to you?"

Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah

Hard to say it's getting old when this whole schtick was never
That fresh in the first place, I'm afraid it's true
Got a talent as a scavenger, just go
And put it to some proper use

All that I do is sigh and frown (sigh and frown)
Notice you (notice you) shake hard now (shake hard now)
Might ask thee "This doesn't seem
Gross to you?"
Seems to me (seems to me) that all this seems
Gross to you

Ooh-wa-ah-ah-ah-ah, gross to you
Ooh-wa-ah-ah-ah-ah, gross to you
Ha-ah-ah-ah-ah, gross to you
Ooh-wa-ah-ah-ah-ah, gross to you

Can't really think of this song without thinking of the Simpsons episode where Marge uses it as her new door tone. Are custom door tones still a thing?

I never liked the OS, in fact I HATE the Carpenters. Utter yuppie Muzak ScheiBe. But you took a piece of crap and made a real good parody out of it. Kudos.
