lyrics

Little House On The Prairie fails to keep my interest, I don't care
About Laura Ingalls Wilder, she's not my favorite writer anyways
(That's Beverly Cleary)
But that's whats on around eleven o'clock, and I'm wishing that I didn't have the chicken pox
Because then I could go something besides watching this old beat up TV

I'm stuck in bed, what in blazes?
I can't wait until I'm not contagious
When I get better I'm gonna play with my Star Wars guys outside

I'm sick of soap operas in the daytime and always smellig like calamine
And the itchin' doesn't ever seem to give me no reprieve
(No reprieve at all)
These chicken pox, they ain't no fun.
I'm so glad we only get them once
If you scratch 'em they just get worse, I wish my body were made out of Nerf
(And everything else!)

I'm stuck in bed, what in blazes?
I can't wait until I'm not contagious
When I get better I'm gonna play with my Star Wars guys outside
Thanks to how pitiful I look
My mom keeps buying me coloring books
When I get better I'm gonna play with my Star Wars guys outside

The only relief I ever get comes from a bubble bath and a nice warm tub
Mr. Bubble is my best friend, I almost like him better than my Boba Fett
(No way!)

I'm stuck in bed, what in blazes?
I can't wait until I'm not contagious
When I get better I'm gonna play with my Star Wars guys outside
Thanks to how pitiful I look
My mom keeps buying me coloring books
When I get better I'm gonna play with my Star Wars guys outside
