The Lyrics

Over 10 million Americans suffer from gastroesophageal reflux disorder, or
GERD. Or would if they would only read this song.
I've got reflux
Every night and day--
When I supersize
I got some hell to pay!

I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My GERD
(My GERD, my GERD)
Talkin' 'bout my GERD
(My GERD)

I've got so much acid
Who needs LSD?
At night I'm eatin' Tums
For my GERDish disease!

Well,
I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My GERD
(My GERD, my GERD)
Talkin' 'bout my GERD
(My GERD)

Ooooo, hooooo
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Ooooo, hooooo,
Yeah--

I had an endoscopy
Tube stuck in me--
And my esophageal sphincter
Is shot, you see!

Well,
I feel so sick
I need stomach staples quick!
My GERD
(My GERD, my GERD)
Talkin' 'bout my GERD
(My GERD)

(Talkin' 'bout my GERD)
I got upchuck, that's a nasty taste with my GERD--
I'm usin' Maalox for toothpaste with my GERD......
Talkin' 'bout, talkin' 'bout, talkin' 'bout my GERD.........
Ooo, my GERD........

At least you don't have to GERD your loins. Very clever piece.

That should be quite obvious from looking at my oeuvre. Hey, stop looking at my oeuvres! Thanks, guys and gals. d;:^)

Bob, some of your political parodies might give me GERD, but this parody was painless. Although it's a good thing I wasn't eating anything when I read your "stomach staples" and Maalox toothpaste" lines. Very humorous.

Damn, John Barry beat me to the pun. And Paul's was pretty good too. Oh, well, give my re-GERDS to Broadway.

Hey, Mer - That was MY pun (although maybe a little hard to decipher)...

GERD is a topic of high local interest in my small town, because our teeny little local hospital, has just purchased the equipment to become the only hospital in the area to treat GERD with the Stretta procedure. Our local docs can help you with those stomach staples, too -- we have one of the best bariatric treatments in this part of the country. (Sorry, just kinda neat to see topics of such high local interest parodized by coincidence.) Great job on this, Bob!

Thanks mucho, John; "To eat his own," as I like to say. Paul: okay, NOW I get it. In your honor: "Then comes the hurly GERDy man, he's flinging prawns.....upchucked......" Michael: I will be in NYC later this month with my wife and son. It would be great to meet you on Broadway, or off-Broadway. We could co-write a Kerry song, maybe? Merry: done and done. Melhi: I'm glad this brought up some....er, local topics. So what else do you do for fun--(besides write parodies, of course)? Thanks all, and stay away from those midnight chalupas. d;:^)

Bob - I like your little "Hurdy GERDY man" take in the last comment.
Bob Gomez - June 16, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, Paul. That's "Hurly GERDy Man." Or should it be "GERDy Hurly Man"? d;:^)
