The Lyrics

Summertime Flu


Well I'm-a feelin' mighty feverish, I'm feelin' hot 'n' bothered
I been-a sneezin' all summer just a-blowin' out my snotter
A-well I hocked up loogie that was awfully thick
And my boss says, "Go home, Bob, you're coughin' up bricks."
Sometimes I wonder what I'm-a gonna do
'Cause there ain't no cure for the summertime flu

A-well I took me seven Tylenol and three Ibuprofen
A-Guaifenesin and Benadryl and Predisone and Motrin
A-well my resp'ratory system's in a terrible state
My doc says, "You're ill, but don't overmedicate."
Sometimes I wonder what I'm-a gonna do
'Cause there ain't no cure for the summertime flu

A-for an epidemiologist there's so much to inspire us
Well there's-a monkeypox and HIV and West Nile virus
A-well I went to a specialist and she says, "Wow,
It looks a bit like SARS, but it could be mad cow."
Sometimes I wonder what I'm-a gonna do
'Cause there ain't no cure for the summertime flu

I'm gonna take two weeks, gotta cancel my vacation
I'm gonna check my sorry butt into a real hibernation
And when I fin'lly antihistamize and decongest
I'll kick off this elephant that's sittin' on my chest
Sometimes I wonder what I'm-a gonna do
'Cause there ain't no cure for the summertime flu

Bonus points for fitting "epidemiologist" into your meter. I'm joining the Bob Gomez fan club.

Another "ill" parody. Five Aleves for you. (That's an award, not a prescription!)

Thanks everybody--your comments are much appreciated. I've been a little sick lately, but I sympathize with people who can't seem to kick a bug for weeks. d;:^)
