Tony's got a botfly in his forehead.
Jenny's got a guinea worm in her shoe.
Dave's got leeches, Mike's got flu.
Everybody's got a parasite, I've got you.

First date: we thought it was great.
We drank and we ate. We stayed up real late.
Next week we hit our peak making the bedsprings creak.
And now, one month later.

Tony's got a botfly in his forehead.
Jenny's got a guinea worm in her shoe.
Dave's got leeches, Mike's got flu.
Everybody's got a parasite, I've got you.

I guess that's what I get
for being a jerk instead of cooling my jets.
You were a wolf in sheepskin
playing for keeps and I lost.
And now, 20 years later.

Tony's got a botfly in his forehead.
Jenny's got a guinea worm in her shoe.
Dave's got leeches, Mike's got flu.
Everybody's got a parasite, I've got you.

I've got you, I've got you.
Somebody tell me what to do.
Should I try a bit of vinegar?
Has someone got an antidote?
Band-Aids, cyanide, hydrogen peroxide,
rum and coke if nothing else will do.
Everybody's got a parasite, I've got you.

Tony's got a botfly in his forehead.
Jenny's got a guinea worm in her shoe.
Dave's got leeches, Mike's got flu.
Everybody's got a parasite, I've got you.

    General CommentThis is the first Pain song I heard..It got me into them..it's a cool way of saying he was "plagued" with someone.."Everybody's got a parasite, I've got you."

    General CommentA botfly is a type of parasitic fly. I love this song, as I do every other Pain song.

    General CommentEverybody has a parasite, I've got you. This is why I love this band. Telling someone that she is the reason their life is miserable by saying that person is a parasite.

    This is one of the better upbeat break up songs you can go for. "Hey, babe, I got a song you need to listen to. I think it represents us to the letter."
