[!filk] I go from not reading enough of these to writing one of my own. I guess it took long enough. You might not have heard this song. It didn't ever get on the radio. The song itself is in (7+8)/8 time, so it has a rather confusing meter that you need the actual song to fully understand. [/!filk]

Bathe Yourself
A filk of Incubus' "Make Yourself"
by: ph00tbag

If I hadn't bathed me, I would've been bathed
Somehow.
If I hadn't cleansèd myself, I would smell really bad
by now.
If I hadn't bathed me, I'd be biohazard right now;
A Gameru Belch Blast would have fouled* me up,
but that's more than I can allow.

If you let them bathe you, your odor will
Never change;
From a distance you're clean, untill the wind comes
and your B.O. is blown this way.
If you let them scrub you, you'll be scrubbed
In the wrong way,
And rest assured they'll scrub you complete
'till your skin is scrubbed away.

[Chorus]
You should get a cleanse with you,
If only for better smell,
Better smell.
But if you don't want to smell bad,
Why not try and bathe yourself?
Bathe yourself.

If I hadn't bathed me, I would smell really bad by now.
I won't let them bathe me, it's more than I can allow,
And if I bathe me, my odor will have been changed,
And if I scrub me, I'll scrub me in my own way!

I'll scrub me in my own way!
I'll scrub me in my own way!
I'll scrub me in my own way!
I'll scrub me in my own way!

[Repeat Chorus]

Make yourself
Words by: Brandon Boyd

If I hadn't made me, I would've been made
Somehow.
If I hadn't assembled myself, I'd've fallen apart
By now.
If I hadn't made me, I'd be more inclined to bow.
The powers that be would've swallowed me up,
But that's more than I can allow.

If you let them make you, they'll make you
Papier-mache;
From a distance you're strong, until the wind comes
and you crumble and blow away.
If you let them fuck you, there will be no
Foreplay,
But rest assured, they'll screw you complete,
'til your ass is blue and grey.

[Chorus]
You should make amends with you,
If only for better health,
better health,
But if you really want to live,
Why not try and make yourself?
Make yourself.

If I hadn't made me, I'd've fallen apart by now.
I won't let them make me, It's more than I can allow,
And when I make me, I won't be papeir-mache,
And if I fuck me, I'll fuck me in my own way!

I'll fuck me in my own way!
I'll fuck me in my own way!
I'll fuck me in my own way!
I'll fuck me in my own way!

[Repeat Chorus]


*fouled should be sung with two syllables, the second on the "l."
