-> "Nix Ticks’ Pricks, Quick, Flick ’em Off!"
Original Song Title:
"Hickory Dickory Dock"
Parody Song Title:
"Nix Ticks’ Pricks, Quick, Flick ’em Off!"
Ticks hitchin’ on, on our walk,
their kitchen: your bloodstock.
If blown up’s one,
it’s just chowed down.
Ditch hitchin’ ticks’—kick ’em off.
Ticks in the sticks, on our walk;
around sometimes they flock.
They hop on you
then bore and chew.
Ticks: on they stick like dried caulk.
Ticks to flick off on our walk,
especially a big flock.
If one’s on me,
I’ll make it flea [sic].
Ticks: quick, flick off friggin’ flock!
Ticks stick to skin, get a lock,
sometimes beneath your locks
or under your
pants to bore for gore.
Nix ticks with thick, heavy socks.
“Nix Stix Tix Prix” is a mock
head from a rag that gawks
at the stars’ lives;
still today it thrives.
This is the riff I ripped off.*
Ticks prick sans lips when you walk;
Once they have got a lock,
they do not lick,
as in they stick:
Ticks drink like hicks swiggin’ bock.
Ticks’ shtik: to sic when you walk.
They’ll hide behind a rock.
When past you’re steppin’,
on you they’ll be schleppin’.
Ticks sic then prick while you walk.
Ticks stick like ships to a dock
tied so tight they don’t rock.
Just hope your fate
ain’t one for mate.
Ticks stick like ships in dry dock.
Ticks: icky things that we mock
when we go on a walk.
like pigs they dine!”
This tick-diss kibitz we talk.
Ticks slip quick ’neath unfixed frock
loosened during a walk.
So, no loose ends
in your duds, my friends:
nix ticks slippin’ ’neath a frock.
Ticks slip quick ’neath unfixed smock
loosened during a walk.
So do not be messin’
around when you’re dressin’:
nix ticks slippin’ ’neath a smock.
Ticks sicken, brix**-swiggin’ pox!
So when you go on walks,
to avoid doom,
groom with deet spume:
spritz anti-tick ante-walk!
