The icky little spider – a song parody

The icky little spider – a song parody by yours truly…

Icky little spider

The icky little spider that invaded my office. Excuse me, for the photo is fuzzy… I was way out of my comfort zone taking this shot.

“I don’t like spiders, man, just because they are sneaky – they just really scare me. They are hairy – ugh.” – Tom Holland

The icky little spider

The icky little spider climbed up my office wall.
Dropping down its web, it freaked this writer out!
Out came a bat to smash that thing away,
And the icky little spider got up and ran away.

The icky little spider fell off the office wall.
Out came the fear of this brave writer now.
Grabbing some spray to scare that thing away,
And the icky little spider got up and walked away.

The icky little spider glared at me from the wall.
Spinning down the web, it’s staring at me now!
Out came the vacuum to suck that thing away,
And the icky little spider somehow had got away.

The icky little spider’s no longer on the wall.
“Where is it at,” is what I’m asking now.
Out of my office, staring from the hall;
And the icky little spider is laughing at it all.

The icky little spider starts crawling towards me – Wow!!
Down came my shoe to end this nonsense now.
Back in the office, beaming ear to ear;
‘Cause that icky little spider’s no longer my top fear.

Out of my office, staring from the hall; And the icky little spider is laughing at it all. Click To Tweet

So sorry if that gets stuck on a loop in your head! I’m not sure why, but lately I have been having a blast writing song parodies. Maybe it was the inspiration of attending the Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop. Anyhow, I’ve written parodies over the years, so go ahead and read my first official newspaper column, and one I wrote last week. Enjoy!

    I like it. Poetry in motion. I just can’t get the song loop out of me head. I don’t like spiders!!

  3. I’m not really scared of spiders but there’s this big badass cockroach who occasionally runs across the floor and I can’t catch him. My apartment is clean and he’s gross!

  4. Love your song but I definitely have spider fears. In fact. that picture almost stopped my from clicking on the link and coming here. (After laughing at your fun song, I’m glad I did though).
