Sing this to the tune of John Brown's Body AKA the Battle Hymn of the Republic:
I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves,
I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves,
I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves,
And this is how it goes:
(repeat)
You can increase the annoyance factor by shouting out the number of the verse you're on.*

*The young gentlemen who taught me this song were at summer camp, and wanted to test the boundaries set by a non-parental authority figure, specifically, me.

"Verse 7!" they cried, hoping to get a rise out of me, but I let them go on. They'll get tired of it soon, I thought.

Never underestimate the determination of a pack of nine-year-old boys at summer camp. I had to exercise my counselor priveleges and ordered them a nice, frosty glass of shut the hell up after they shouted "Verse 21!"


Trina notes that you can also sing a variation to the tune of Buffalo Gals (Won't You Come Out Tonight?):
I know a song that'll get on your nerves,
get get get on your nerves, get on your nerves,
I know a song that'll get on your nerves,
And this is how it goes:
(repeat)
But don't you dare let those nine year olds know.
