The Lyrics

I don't wanna hear about it - anymore
It's a shame you've gone this long without one - never more
You're my roomate and I care
But there's mushrooms in your hair - that kind of looks nasty
We don't need to fight about this - anymore
Your B.O. is so powerful - it can close a door
My eyes made no mistake
I see the paint start to peel when you stretch your arms out

Don't say you won't
Say you'll do us all a favor
Whoa - right away

Can you take a shower?
To save our precious (save our precious) - oxygen?
Can you take a shower?
It's only water; guaranteed you won't melt away
(Guaranteed you won't melt away and -- )

I don't wanna see your dandruff - anymore
This is why no one comes on by - and you reek for sure
It has been a month or two
And it's time you catch a clue when it comes to hygiene

Don't try to run
Can't escape a bath forever
Whoa - can't escape

Can you take a shower?
Can you scrub your body (scrub your body) - thoroughly?
Can you take a shower?
Don't even try it; hiding under the bed won't work
(Hiding under the bed won't work, you coward -- )

I was running with the hose
The next thing I remember
Your foul odor punched my nose, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

(bad hygiene guitar solo)

Don't go outside
You don't want to scare the public
Whoa - run away!
(Run away! Run away, yeah!!)

Can you take a shower?
Don't forget to grab your - soap and towel
Can you take a shower?
Wait just a minute - whoa whoa whoa

You can't take a shower
I forgot to pay the - water bill
You can't take a shower
I guess it's over - whoa-oa no
From the 4th album - "Under My Chin"

I must congratulate you for parodying this song (a first, I believe), one that I spent a lot of time and got nowhere past a title or chorus. Funny work too, and great matches to TOS!
