The Lyrics

Another cool title switch put in my hands. BTW, this is my first parody of 2010!
(Synth voice at beginning)
If you go camping out tonight
Watch out, bugs bite

When you camp out, you'll get bit by mosquitoes
They will suck your blood, 'til you're sick and green
Do you spray OFF!, which might just last forever
Then you get lice, itchy stings from bees
Ooh, pain! Oh, great!

When you're skin and bone, blame the 'Skeetos
Are you feelin' so itchy, you might just hit the road
Ooh, campin'!

I don't wanna scratch this wound much, pains me
Cause stupid bugs outdoors have drove me crazy!
And ev'ry single bug leads the way for many
So I don't wanna be there when you go out for camping!

Bug bites! Bee stings!
And don't forget canine fleas!
From ticks! From flies!
It's no surprise!
From ants, from bees
I'm so itchy....

Next time I go, they will burn in hells
My attack goes through, my plan it will not fail
Now here they come, unleash the hounds!
They don't belong, anytime I'm around

Hooh, pain!

I'm so glad this don't count as a mistake
Cause killing stuff will land me in the jail place

Bug bites! Bee stings!
I've sprayed off my bloodied knees
The eggs! Will die!
No more will fly!
Hound ticks, dog fleas
No more for me

(Guitar solo)

Now my bites are almost gone completely
Cause killing bugs that caused the pain erases
The pain I feel from all of that outdoor playing
As long as they will come out, you know their bones are breaking

Bug bites! Skin's clean!
I washed off my arms and knees
No more! Harsh screams!
My dog lost 9000 fleas!
They're dead! They've died!
No more red thighs!
Song's dead, song's eased
No more lines, please....

When you go camping out tonight
Run home, bugs bite

This parody bites! (But in a good way)

Happy New Year, and congrats on becoming an editor! (Same here on first of 2010 posted today.)

Well done. Now for the practical advice: Instead of spraying yourself with a cancer-causing deadly chemical, just rub a fresh, cut garlic clove all over yourself -- *seriously*. The bugs don't like it any more than the people around you will, but if they all do it too.... Tried (by moi) and proven in a visit to the Everglades, a massive mosquito Mecca. 555 cloves to get you started!

You're telling me! Every summer, I'm likely to be the mosquitoes' food source. I call them the "vampire insects" for their penchant to consume blood from humans. Since they like to feast on my legs, I always wear pants when I work outside. When my legs get laden with bites, I called them the "gruesome twosome", my legs. And when they're not feasting on my legs, they feast on my arms and face. I know I scratch them like crazy, when I'm not supposed to. Anyways, excellent title switch and humorous perspective on mosquito bites. But what you need to beware of are tsetse flies or insects carrying West Nile Viruses. Here's 5 Cortaids, 5 OFF Sprays, and 5 Calamine Lotions to treat bug bites!

It's about time I saw a DJ Blaze parody this year. Nice parody.

You should see TCOP's This One Camp Trip, maybe you two can save each other. This one exaggerated just enough to be really funny without going into the realm of surrealism, that can be a good thing ( I happen to love surrealism, but this one probably wouldn't be as fun if it weren't so believable)

Very funny song, I've been there...but grabbed the ON instead of OFF which made it horribly worse!
Jack Wilson - February 09, 2010 - Report this comment
Loved it!!!! 5s as usual

(Genre Hero) Mozzies are always a pain in the arse, so this was a very relatable parody, so 555! Also thanks to BAD for the shout out!

SOTM - "itchin'" to vote again on this, because it bit me hard!!!
Abbott Skelding - February 16, 2010 - Report this comment
SOTM: Very nice, this reminds me of a parody I wrote called "Real Bad Itch", only this is better! $555 for bug spray!

Is there any band more "80s" than Def Leppard? Pretty good parody but with two meters of snow outside my window I find it hard to relate to the subject right now. :-)

SOTM...the past couple of summers have been especially mosquito-y around here, so I was reminded of that horror. This made me itchy just reading it...=)

I had a bit of trouble pacing this one buddy, and Skeetos actually sounds like an off brand of chips. . .love the idea though . . .
Medemia - February 28, 2010 - Report this comment
Well, the song didn't bite :) I don't know how much I got into it as I am not a big 80's hair band fan but I do like the humor of it.

(ABC) This parody is crawling.... with 555!
Mark Scotti - March 07, 2011 - Report this comment
(ABC) I was itchin' to read this one again...LOL!
agrimorfee - March 07, 2011 - Report this comment
(ABC) i liked the choruses more than the verses, I think maybe because they carried your subject more succinctly, with the cut rhythm and the rhyming words which almost sounded like they were singing them! If you were to rewrite it, maybe make more of a storyline with the verses to build up to that funny payoff.
Abbott Skelding - March 08, 2011 - Report this comment
(ABC): I agree with Grim, I liked the choruses more than the verses. Nice idea, but could have been carried out a little better.

See above X2. . .the first comment slightly more resembles my primary opinion than the second (you must think I'm indecisive by now, but both comments reflect my opinion:))

(ABC) Holy crap, I commented on this one before? Twice, even. Still a great parody, of course.
