Painful Reminder



Lyrics for Painful Reminder by SNFU:

The young boy has fallen in love
With his homeroom teacher
He has fallen in love

It happens everyday
In schools throughout the city
Throughout the city

She was married, he did learn
And inside he did burn
Deep inside he burned

He vowed that never again
Would he open his heart
Open up his heart

And to serve as a reminder
He painted her a picture
This painful reminder
And he keeps it in his binder
This painful reminder

The next day in his art class
He drew a picture of her
With an axe in her head

A picture's worth a thousand words
Even those left unsaid
Those best left unsaid

Now he walks the halls alone
And it is for the better

And he vowed that never again
Would he open his heart
Oh no! never again!

And to serve as a reminder...

Song Facts

A roughly autobiographical song about Ken Chinn’s, lead singer and founding member of SNFU, unrequited love for a teacher of his.

When living in Vancouver toward the end of his life, Chi Pig would play this in the bar he often inhabited on the jukebox to “piss off the jocks.”
