Parody Song Title:

"Sounds Of Sinus"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Hello Nyquil, my old friend
I've come to swallow you again
Because a pollen softly creeping
Made me sneeze while I was sleeping
And the Contac that was planted in my brain
Still remains

Within the sound of sinus

In Rite Aid dreams I walked alone
The narrow aisles of Tums and Doanz
Beneath the solo of a muzak amp
I wiped my collar with the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed
By the flash of a discount light
That split the price

And touched the sound of sinus

And in the naked light I saw
Two dozen people, maybe more
People wheezing without coughing
People sneezing without blowing
People sharing germs that voices always bared
And no one dared

Disturb the sound of sinus

Fools, said I, you do not know
That sinus like a cancre grows
Hear my words that I may teach you
Take my hankie so I may reach you
But my words, like nasal droplets fell
And echoed

In the wells of sinus

And then the people bowed and prayed
To a nasal spray they made
And the spray squeezed out its warning
In the drops that it was forming
And the sign said
"The germs of the doctors are breeding
In the bathroom stalls
& test tube walls

And whispered
In the sound of sinus."

I wrote "Sounds of Sinus" back around 1983-84, and I think Dr. Demento first aired it around 1990. I see someone did a spinoff of my song... a parody of a parody. Mark Young

I don't always have my original recording of "Sounds of Sinus" (from back in the 1980s) online, but can make it available if desired. My email changed, but you can reach me via my website: --I updated "Contac" to "Claritin" ("I am addicted, to Claritin & Nyquil too").

Great parody! I was looking for a way to contact you via this site, but to no avail. I was wondering it I might be able to record a version of this parody. I would, of course, give you the credit for writing it, and, who knows, it might get played on Dr. Demento.
