The Lyrics

I realize that coronary arteries clog much more easily than the aorta, but please play along. Also, I don't mean to imply coronary disease is funny, for my dad recently had a triple bypass over which I was very concerned, but he likes the parody, so I hesitantly submit it. I've made a lot of effort to match end-rhymes to the original, but you be the judge.
Fat Clogging Your Aorta

When you're weary, color palled,
When gloss is in your eyes, you're about to fall
Pain in your side, when stairs get rough
You can't get off the ground
You'll sense there's fat clogging your aorta
You've got to clear it out
You'll sense there's fat clogging your aorta
You've got to clear it out

When you're passin' out
Dead there on your feet
When breathing seems so hard
They will x-ray you
They'll check your heart
When doctors come
To read the ultrasound
They'll see that fat clogging your aorta
They'll have to take it out.
They'll see that fat clogging your aorta,
They'll have to take it out


Your cholesterol's
Way up high
Poor sinus rhythm line
All your arteries decayed
Bad vital signs
Oh, then they'll need to send
You for an M-R-I
"See that fat clogging your aorta
We need to clear that line"
"See that fat clogging your aorta
We need to clear that line"

A very original rhyme for "water"... I thought this worked pretty well - I think I prefer the pyromaniac chess song, though ;-)

Jay, Interesting uptake on something that catches up to a lot of us. Glad your dad liked it and you shouldn't worry about your parody content. There is room out here for the more serious type of songs. Humor is a great stress reliever. You may have saved someone's life today with this song by relieving their stress long enough to keep a coronary event from developing, who knows? Good job.

Heavy duty topic. I agree with Guy on this one. Well done.

I can identfy, my family is a pallet of coronary ailments.

As I look at the parody again, it really appears a bit more serious than I consciously intended. I really do appreciate the kind words and concern from everyone.
