Socks On Fire

Kate Hart
Sometimes, we writers, we do strange things. Particularly late at night on writers forums when we're procrastinating that thing we're supposed to be doing. You know. Writing.

So I related to my writer friends at AW how, for obvious reasons, I told my four-year-old that Kings of Leon were singing socks on fire. From there, my girl Deb and I just... went off.

I give you:
SOCKS ON FIRE
an epic remix by Kate and Deb

Stuck in an old shoe, squishing around
I could just taste it, just taste it
I just got powder, that odor eating kind
Oh, it is the greatest, the greatest, the greatest

Yeahhhhh, your socks are on fiiiirreeee
concerrrrrrned.... that my feet will perspire....


The dark of the toe box, the smell breaks your nose
No shoes off while driving, while driving
Your feet make me nauseous, my face is pale
They smell like you're dying, you're dying.

Yeahhhhh, your socks are on fiiiirreeee
concerrrrrrned.... that my feet will perspire....
Now I've got fungus, it itches so bad
C'mon everyone quit watching, quit watching
My trip to the drugstore, Lotrimin in my bag
Has people talking, talking
Yeahhhhh, your socks are on fiiiirreeee
concerrrrrrned.... that my feet will perspire....


For extremely large sums of money, we might be persuaded to perform this little ditty at SCBWI LA this summer. Maybe.

  5. Where in the WORLD did you find a picture of someone setting their sock on fire?

    And I LOVE the song. It's a chart-buster, for sure! :)
