The Lyrics

Voltaren/Cataflam is an old-line nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which can be harsh on the GI tract. COX-2 inhibitors Vioxx, Celebrex, and Bextra were touted as superior because they were allegedly easier on the stomach. Vioxx has been pulled off the market--like its COX-2 cousins, implicated in inducing heart disease.
Voltaren, also
Cataflam--by both names known.

If you've lumbago or gout,
It drives inflammation out.
There's one thing you should know
Before you take it, though,
Make sure, first, that your stomach is lined
With some food, because it can bruise and treat your poor gut unkind.
An old class of NSAID, it's gainsaid by COX-2 makers' whines.

Voltaren, also
Cataflam--by both names known.

So you went on a Vioxx fling.
Now your vitals are failing.

So you went on a Vioxx fling.
Now you're defibrillating.

Voltaren sounds like it would make you sarcastic and cynical, given its similarity to a certain philosopher's name.

Whoa; I didn't think anyone else would ever parody this song. Well done.
