The Lyrics

Part of my "Do What You Wanna Do" self-challenge. Dude's got a cough. He's not a fan. Enjoy!
Not feelin' too great
Somethin' in my throat grates
Been like this all da-a-ay, mmm-mmm
And the last few da-a-ays, mmm-mmm
When I have somethin' to say *coughcough*
Damn cough gets in the way
Makes the people go awa-a-ay, mmm-mmm
And I find that la-a-ame, mmm-mmm
Far from amusin'
Dumb cough, it's not movin'
Know it's supposed to loosen
My phlegm, right
But it ain't workin', that's my gri-ipe

I'm not fakin', this ain't fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Truth I'm sayin', my throat grates, grates, grates, grates, grates
That's precisely why I hate, hate, hate, hate, ha-ate
I hate this cough, I hate this cough, ooh-ooh-ooh
Palm races to my face, face, face, face, face
In the way of my mouth spray, spray, spray, spray, spray
It's disgustin', so I hate, hate, hate, hate, ha-ate
I hate this cough, I hate this cough, ooh-ooh-ooh

Wish that it was a sneeze
Don't hurt my throat, you see
They're over instantly-y-y, mmm-mmm
Though a tad messy-y-y, mmm-mmm
My sneezes may be gross (that much I do know)
Can stuff some tissues up my nose (so the snot can't flow)
More managable, though-ough-ough, mmm-mmm
And that's IMO-O-O, mmm-mmm
May seem confusin'
Hate coughs, not achoo-in'
I'd much prefer the mucus
You heard right
I can handle it when snot fli-ies

What's more gratin', throat it grates, grates, grates, grates, grates
Won't abate, for Peter's sake, sake, sake, sake, sake
No progression, so I hate, hate, hate, hate, ha-ate
I hate this cough, I hate this cough, ooh-ooh-ooh
Hard sayin' this ain't great, great, great, great, great
When my face erupts in shakes, shakes, shakes, shakes, shakes
Interruptions, thus I hate, hate, hate, hate, ha-ate
I hate this cough, I hate this cough, ooh-ooh-ooh
Hate this cough, I hate this cough
I, I, I hate this cough, I hate this cough
I, I, I hate this cough, I hate this cough
I, I, I hate this cough, I hate this cough, ooh-ooh-ooh

Hey, hey, hey
I know folks may think I'm just whinin' loud
About the coughin' and I'm makin' it sound a whole lot worse
You're missin' the point, which is the cough won't leave
Tried cough mints and some Ventolin
I've still got that cough, that's why I'm so irate
You're askin' "How'd the cough get there, did I swallow some hair?
I'm all "Why can't this cough piss off, for Pete's sake, sake, sake?"

Yeah-eah-eah oh-oh-oh
In no way exaggerate, -rate, -rate, -rate, -rate
'Bout the way I feel today, day, day, day, day (rage I feel today)
And that feel I feel is hate, hate, hate, hate, ha-ate
I hate this cough, I hate this cough, ooh-ooh-ooh
Hard sayin' this, must say, say, say, say, say (mmmm-mmm-mmm)
Cause my gratin' throat's in pain, pain, pain, pain, pain (in pain, in pain, in pai-ai-ain)
I'm repeatin', but I hate, hate, hate, hate, ha-ate
I hate this cough, I hate this cough, ooh-ooh-ooh
Hate this cough, I hate this cough
I, I, I hate this cough, I hate this cough (oh-oh-oh)
I, I, I hate this cough, I hate this cough
I, I, I hate this cough, I hate this cough, ooh-ooh-ooh
Hate this cough, I hate this cough
I, I, I hate this cough, I hate this cough (oh-oh-oh)
I, I, I hate this cough, I hate this cough
I, I, I hate this cough (yeah), I hate this cough, ooh-ooh-ooh
Hate this cough, I hate this cough
I, I, I hate this cough, I hate this cough (it's bollocks)
I, I, I hate this cough, I hate this cough
I, I, I hate this cough, I hate this cough

I only have one problem with the original song: it's by Taylor Swift. And while that may sound like a "hurr hurr taylor sux" joke, it's not. It's a commentary on how Shake It Off does not sound like a Taylor Swift song, it's just too dumb a song to come from her, IMO. And this is coming from a guy who couldn't give two craps about country music.
