I don't understand the meaning of th expression of "get on people's wick" below. Wick, I assume it is a piece of string in the centre of a candle, isnt it?
He's kind and gen'rous to the sick
He'd never spread a nasty rumour
He never gets on people's wick
And doesn't laugh at toilet humour

It means get on their nerves, irritate.
