The Lyrics

You say you're young; you don't get ill.
You've never paid a doctor's bill.
Well I'm afraid time's up for you
'Cause you got me, and baby I got flu.

I got flu, babe. (cough! cough!)
I got flu, babe. (achoo! achoo!)

They say this flu is spreading fast
And it gets worse the longer that it lasts.
I guess that's so; I'm going to pot
And I'm sure I'll use all the sick time I have got.

I got flu, babe. (cough! cough!)
I got flu, babe. (achoo! achoo!)

I got flu, I must be cursed.
But I got you to be my nurse.
I know that you won't leave me alone,
But if you get sick, you're on your own.

Don't let flu scare you away from me,
'Cause I need you, I need some sympathy.
But don't put your little hand in mine
Or this flu will spread, it'll grow just like a vine.

I got flu, babe. (cough! cough!)
I got flu, babe. (achoo! achoo!)

I got flu, I'm burning up.
I got flu, I think I'll throw up.
I got flu, my body's aching.
I got flu, chills leave me shaking.
I got flu, I'm hacking and wheezing.
I got flu, I can't stop sneezing.
I got flu, it won't let go.
I got flu, I've never felt so low.

I got flu, babe.
I got flu, babe. (cough! cough!)
I got flu, babe. (achoo! achoo!)
I got flu, babe. (hack! hack!)
I got flu, babe. (groan!)

Hehe, this is pretty funny - I have an inside joke about Sonny & Cher and this will contribute to it, hehe.
