The Lyrics

Longing for relief from the misery of "GIRD"? Time to go to "Gaviscon"...
Gaviscon, need Gaviscon, I can hear my stomach gurgling
I feel cramps and now I'm hurtin'
Geez, it's not much fun so I'll take Gaviscon

Gaviscon, bring Gaviscon, something in my gut is churning
And I feel this constant burning
Now I've got runs and need some Gaviscon

Swilling those mixed drinks just like they're water
Now my guts hurt; they make me grieve
And my stomach is paining me
like a bitch, and it is not much fun

Gaviscon, where's Gaviscon, stomach hurts so bad I'm crying
Had four draft beers; still I'm whining
Feel the raw, hot burn of GIRD splashing on my tongue
Need Gaviscon, my Gaviscon

(Instrumental to end)

Ah, GIRD (or is it "GERD" for "Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease" ?) for "Sea BIRDs flying in the sun" !! Great job, Paul, well done.

You forgot the riff part. A song like this just has to have riff.

Thanks, folks...coincidentally, I am just about to eat a bowl of chili for lunch now...
Millard - November 16, 2004 - Report this comment
This was a good idea and well paced, but how about a little rhyming? Crying/whining/splashing doesn't count because, in the original song, Jimmy Webb rhymed dying/crying/flying (feminine rhyme). If you are claiming that gurgling and hurting and grieve and me are also rhyming pairs, that is very feeble. So your only decent rhyme is churning/burning.

Well, Millard, thanks for looking and giving me your opinion. Personally, I don't think that my rhymes are all that bad here, but that is certainly subject to personal preference and taste and I understand what you are saying. You know, there are a couple of internal rhymes within the lines, although from your criticism of those you mentioned I doubt you would think that much of them either. But I do appreciate the feedback from you.

I should have known someone would think of it first (like 11 years beforehand). Anyway, some more belated verses ......................... Gavascon, oh Gavascon, I still hear my deep winds blowin'...................... Up the windpipe, stuff's a flowin'...................... I was 51 when I started Gavascon....................... ...................... Gavascon, oh Gavascon, I need you to soothe the lashing...................... In my throat the acid's slashing!...................... I want to run, to run to Gavascon....................... ...................... Sometimes I'm drinking too much water...................... Before bed, it's sloshing like the sea...................... But it is waiting there for me...................... On the bedside table, it's the only one....................... ...................... Gavascon, oh Gavascon, you are what I'm buying...................... No other brands that I am trying...................... Before I take a Quick Eze, or maybe more than one...................... I'd rather Gavascon, oh Gavascon!
