The Lyrics

It takes the sting out of my hands,
From my hip bone and my knees.
It helps me grasp and stoop and stand
Oh so much more easily.
No matter the source of my ache,
I know which medicine to take.

Just give me Advil in the morning, baby
Give me what I need to relieve me all day.
Just give me Advil in the morning, maybe,
I'll walk without a limp,
Not shuffle like a chimp-
an-zee-ee-ee.

Most mornings I can't move too fast
It's hard to roll out of bed.
Move like a member of the cast
Of "Night of the Living Dead".
There's just one sure-fire remedy
For this lack of mobility.

Just give me Advil in the morning, baby
Give me what I need to relieve me all day.
Just give me Advil in the morning, maybe,
I'll walk without a limp,
Not shuffle like a chimp-
an-zee-ee-ee.

(repeat chorus)

Pain-free comedy. 555

Great parody. But uhm...when did ONJ do this song? I thought Merilee Rush performed the very first rendition of it. Could I be mistaken?
Rex - August 27, 2005 - Report this comment
Maybe you were thinking of Juice Newton and not Olivia Newton?
Kyla - August 27, 2005 - Report this comment
Rex: Juice Newton's version, which was a cover, was made in the early 80's. Merilee Rush's version was made either in the late 60's or early 70's; I doubt that ONJ had any 60's stuff.

Sorry I could not determine who first recorded this. I found where both Juice and ONJ did a version of this. Does anyone know of site where I can search by song title even if I know not the original artist? Nothing I tried yesterday worked.

When did ONJ perform it? I'm curious. The only two versions I know of are by Merilee Rush and by Juice Newton.

I don't know the year but it was on the "Crystal Lady" album

Love Advil, and this parody also. 555

PMS: Merrilee Rush in '68 (and hers was a cover, I can't remember who did the original, earlier in the year), Juice Newton's inferior but higher-charting version in '81. Fortunately, I'm giving this a five rating. Unfortunately, I know the feeling, to the point where I've built up a tolerance to Advil, and now only Aleve and Bufferin work for me.

Thanks Michael and Dee Range, I wish there was a website that tells who is the AUTHOR of an OS. I think they deserve the credit. even if someone else made the song popular...
Kyla - August 30, 2005 - Report this comment
Michael P: Thanks for the info on Merilee's version. I was so certain that hers was the very first (like Elvis on "Can't Help Falling In Love" or the Temptations on "The Way You Do The Things You Do"), but now I guess I was wrong. By the way, I just did some research, and found out that Olivia Neutron-Bomb's version was made in 1972. So now you'll probably expect to hear from the Decade Police.

The Decade Police???? OOOOO I am so scared!
Not the Decade Police, but Joe Blow - August 30, 2005 - Report this comment
I guess I forgot my ticket pad at home, oh well... but I give it fives anyway because Olivia Neutron Bomb's voice gives me a headache (I like how you made fun of her name, Kyla!).

Parody is good. Original hit was by Merrilee Rush in '68 shortly after Evie Sands recording started out as a hit and label went bankrupt. Later recorded by Crystal Gayle, Olivia Newton-John, and Juice Newton who it was also a big hit for. Written by Chip Taylor (also wrote 'wild Thing') brother of Jon Voight.

Sorry so late to vote/comment, but you had just voted on one of mine so I wanted to return the favor. You may not know that Advil is also known as Motrin or Ibuprophen (just kidding, people need to relax about the details of these things). Someone just told me the OS was written by Frank Zappa! But I'm not one to argue, it gives me a headache.

Wolf: I think it's already been established.

PMS: I like the parody.

Go to Google and type "name of song"+lyrics or just "name of song" if it's not a common single word. You should get a number of returns on each artist who did the song. Scroll through. I just did this for this OS and found that it was covered by Bonnie Tyler and a number of others.
