I know you're antiseptic, your deodorant smells nice
I'd like to get to know you, you're deep frozen like the ice

She's a germ free adolescent, cleanliness is her obsession
Cleans her teeth ten times a day
Scrub away, scrub away, scrub away the S.R. way

You may get to touch her if your gloves are sterilized
Rinse your mouth with Listerine, blow disinfectant in her eyes

She's a germ free adolescent, cleanliness is her obsession
Cleans her teeth ten times a day
Scrub away, scrub away, scrub away the S.R. way

Her phobia is infection, she needs one to survive
It's her built-in protection, without fear she'd give up and die

She's a germ free adolescent, cleanliness is her obsession
Cleans her teeth ten times a day
Scrub away, scrub away, scrub away the S.R. way

She's a germ free adolescent, cleanliness is her obsession (4x)
Cleans her teeth ten times a day
Scrub away, scrub away, scrub away the S.R. way

    General CommentI have long felt that this was one of the most beautiful songs ever written. I have known people like this -- nominally terrified of disease, but really terrified of human contact. It's a method of control. There's a bit of ambiguity in the last line: does she need a phobia, or an infection to survive? My suspicion, and it is only a suspicion, is that s.r. must mean "state recommended."
