(A song parody of “I Wear My Pink Pajamas”)
(1.) I wash my fingers often in the Summer when it’s hot,
And wear wooly mittens in the winter when it’s not,
But sometimes in the Springtime
And sometimes in the Fall…
I get a static shock
And I jump up the wall!
Caught by static ‘tricity….
The door knobs I touch
Sometimes hurt so much,
With a ZAP of built-up charge!
(2.) My job is to check door knobs to see if they’re locked,
Strolling on the carpet tends to guarantee me shocked….
I use the back of my hand
To touch the metal frame,
And if there is static, it will not hurt the same!
(3.) The seasonal charges do not always cause me grief,
But when I am off the job I forget charge relief…
My fingers touch my kitty’s nose
And he jumps across the room,
He shies away from touching me…
Not trusting me so soon!
WOE…WOE…WOE IS ME!
Caught again by static ‘tricity…
The kitty cat may claim
I have done it all the same,
But it happened by stroking his mane!
(AUTHOR’S NOTE:***In other words, the tune of “The Battle Hymn of The Republic”)
