The Lyrics

The format below differs slightly from the lyrics I found on a site. So to make it clear, this was done to the music video on Youtube here
I’m not deranged, just the hospitals change
When I bring my arm with a burning sting
I hate my curse, and these nurses are so cold
Was stung all night by insects of gold

I’m a chicken, in a steel box I’d hide
From hornets, wasps and bee hives
Swimming pools I will dive

Sometimes I weep, the pain can last for days
And the anger I feel makes me swing my dinner trays
Why do they aim for me? Is it the Dew that I drink?
And I thought they’re color blind, but they must love pink

I’m a coward, under covers I hide
From hornets (hornets), wasps and bee hives
Honest (honest), that ain’t no jive



I feel spineless, I now comprise no more pride
Due hornets (hornets), wasps and bee hives

I’d guard my yard, a loaded Raid can in my pack
But I don’t dare, cause I might not make it back
I’ve had all of the ex-terminators called
I’ve faced a million stingers an I’ve felt them all

So I am gutless. My tyrant wife, she chides
Of hornets (hornets), wasps and bee hives

The above mentioned insects make me cower like a little girl. You stung a real-life issue on me. 555

~DerReichWolf~ Plenty of wasps here in the SFO bay! The bee population is dwindling, which is a concern for the CA growers! No reason is given for their demise. But I've always marveled at the Big Fuzzy Bumble bees out on the Coast in the fields of wild flowers. Sir.

Wolverine, you bit us with the parody bug. Have some 5's.

I also am rather nautilus around these particular flying creatures. Like Agri, 5's on principle. I won't say it was hilarious, but being unique can be just as important--and relating to the general public is always a good thing.

I think it is hilarious. Bumbles, wasps and bees, oh my! Oh, and don't worry about lyric sites, they are wrong about 80 percent of the time. Never trust them. Always trust YouTube.

Thanks everyone for the comments. Bumble - while I know they "serve an important function in nature", I can do without them. You can take 'em all around here back to the SFO bay. ::shivers:: Tim, I can usually get accurate lyrics, I think it comes down to differences in what was released on the album/CD, and what was released to the radio/MTV. I've come across a couple of songs I own where the YouTube versions are different. But I don't own any Bon Jovi (don't strike me down).

I liked this one... And just because they haven't been done in awhile here's a shameless plug for you: "Bees": I liked the "color blind, but they must love pink" bit.

Kicked it 555 times and now got chased.

This was excellent, Wolverine. Funny work, and "I’ve faced a million stingers an I’ve felt them all" was the best line. " I now comprise no more pride" could be a little easier to get off the tongue, perhaps like "My pride is compromised", but it's a minor point. Things that sting? No problem for me. Things that sting and fly, and swarm. *runs to the ant mound*. 555

(Artistry) Brilliant work here, Wolvie. Pacing was tight and overall bloody hilarious. As Eddie Izzard might say "My father was a parodist. His father was a parodist before him, and I wanna follow in there footsteps - and there footsteps were like this: "AAHHH!! AAAAHH!! I'M COVERED IN FIVES!!"' I'm more than a little crazy...

(Artistry) Quite the stinging parody here.

This has got to be the funniest(if not the most hilarious)parody of a Bon Jovi song I've ever seen in my life! I also like that "I've faced a million stingers and I've felt them all" part of the song! I couldn't stop laughing! Now that was so funny! Bon Jovi would be proud of you!
