The Lyrics

Get up in the morning scratching my head, sir,
Swear now every gnat has been fed.
Cure me, mosquito bite. Aah.

Get up in the morning scratching in bed, sir,
Feel that every vein has been bled.
Ooooh-wee, mosquito bite. Aah.

Me strife lord forbid, they all snacked up believe me.
Fearing me dead, these bugs eat me so mean.
Whoa's me, mosquito bite. Aah.

Squirt them a-flare up, delouser is drawn,
I want them all to end up burning and fried.
Spare me, mosquito bite, Aah.

After thee swarm you set off thee bomb.
They bite me in the arm, I make them much harm.
Ow-wee, mosquito bite. Aah.

Ohhh me, mosquito bite.
I wonder if there's lurking more?
Poor me, mosquito bite.
I don't a-mess about, sir.

Pretty good, Guy - I've thought about doing The Israelites for a while, but couldn't come up with a suitable topic. This one worked pretty well.

For many years I have heard this song and was wondering who sang the OS. I finally found out last night and seeked out parodies of it. Great job.
