Lyrics

The cold fever, a cellular germ
The stray tingle, a chemical burn
Go away, go away, cuz I don't wanna see you

The same cycle, everyday
This sick head, gonna wash it away
Go away, go away, go away

    You make me feel so clean
    You make me kick and scream
    You make me, you make me
    You make me feel so clean

A snap, crackle, a fizzling sound
My skin itches and twitches around
Go away, go away, cuz I don't wanna feel you

My pulse races and wanders astray
This sick head, gonna burn it away
Go away, go away, go away

     [chorus]

I lather and rinse and repeat
You leave me feeling complete
Go away, go away, cuz I don't wanna keep you

I lather and rinse and repeat
You leave me feeling complete
Go away, go away, go away

    [chorus]

Dear Josh, I must know how you were inspired to write this. This song sticks out in my mind as one of the most unusual songs I've heard, and I'd like to know the inspiration. Thanks Logan

When I was young, I noticed "methylchloroisothiazolinone" as an ingredient in shampoo, and it planted a seed of curiousity. *shrugs* There weren't enough songs about shampoo, so I decided to fix that. :)

As far as I'm concerned, this is the only song about shampoo I know. And I'd have to say, hope it stays that way. I love all your works, keep doing what you're doing. <3

I'm just amazed by the fact that there are people out there like me, who also did this :D I've also noticed methylchloroisothiazolinone, and I also found out that it usually comes with methylisothiazolinon, and the second one always disappointed me because it is shorter :) Wonder what they do :/

I just had allergy testing done and this was a HUGE allgergen for me. I typed in the name to see about it and...low and behold someone names a song after it! This was wicked funny because I was not expecting that! I need to avoid anything with methylchloroisothiazolinone but... not sure about music :) it sounds like a pretty cool song! really creative!

This is officially a "long tail" song. :) Hope you're not allergic to it, glad to have you listening if not. :D

I noticed this big ass word on the back of my shampoo bottle as a kid and memorized how to spell it. I'm 36 now and I can still picture the word in my mind letter for letter. It's won me a few beers in who can spell the longest word contests. I thought I was the only weirdo that ever paid attention to methylchloroisothiazolinone.

McItz !! Methylchloroisothiazolinone. Same here. Scrubbing my hair thinking, how am I going to remember how to say this one.

I noticed this word on the back of my shampoo-bottle :-) I can't stop listening songs. Josh, you are the best singer/songwriter in history!!
