Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

I got wood under my skin
A splinter deep in the hide of me
So deep in my hide, man..
Was really inside of me,
I got wood under my skin

I tried to needle it out
Kept stickin' myself in the hand
That didn't play so good
The splinter just seemed to resist
Not come out the way it should..
Yes, I got wood under my skin

Tried a sack with ice, anything,
Not too bright,
Lame attempts at plucking it clear
In spite of a warning voice
That came from my wife
"Better go to emergency, Dear!"

Still I dug like a fool, believed I could win
Used no mentality, woke up to reality
In a day or two, with my hand swelled blue
At the hospital I'm now in..
'Cause I got wood under my skin

That darned wood under my skin...

Now *that's* a funny place to get wood! 5 stitches and a 5-day course of antiwryotics!

thought it was gona be about something the way, if you still have wood under your skin in four hours, its a good idea to see your physician

I too thought you were going somewhere else with this when I saw your title. Ahhh...relief. Are you planning to go through the entire Sinatra songbook...?

Sir this it top notch, as are all tyour fine parodies of ~FS~, very classy, indeed. PS slivers from certain trees can cause infection, but for the most part, just let the skin(2 weeks) swell it up to the top, It's a lot easier to get it out then. ~~NurseCupCakes
