The Lyrics

This parody is semi-autobiographical. Just to clear up: I am actually adressing a pair of gloves in this song.
my hands are scarred, and you're to blame,
darlings, you give gloves a bad name

a silken touch is what you sell
you promise me tenderness but my skin swells
those velcro straps got a hold on me
I'm pulling the fingers but I can't break free

oh, can't get nothing done
oh, rash is no fun
the doctor can't save me
the damage is done

my hands are scarred, and you're to blame
you give gloves a bad name
the freezing starts but warmth you can't maintain
you give gloves a bad name

that quality fiber is already ripped
icy blue nails on my fingertips
minus zero degrees, I can almost cry
thermal insulation is one big fat lie

oh, and I paid a ton
oh, my fingers are numb
I've gone suicidal
but can't hold my gun


you give gloves, oh

chorus x2

you give gloves
you give gloves, whoa
a bad name
you give gloves, whoa
a bad name

Just to be clear: This isn't about the Mets, Michael Jackson or O.J. Simpson?

No, it ain't. Maybe I'm being a dunce right now, but why do you ask?

I cannot say I've had such a problem with gloves myself, but I guess this one is funny.
