The Lyrics

Public health disclaimer: It has not been proven that the H1N1 swine flu can be contracted by reading a parody about it. But you never know. So please turn away from the screen when you cough.
Well, it’s Cinco de Mayo
And what do you know?
All round the news
It’s Mexico!
Swine influenza
Is hogging the show
While C.D.C., W.H.O. freakin’ with the

Swine viruses!
Paranoia’s got a new website--
Swine viruses!
I’m feelin’ sickened on the last train home tonight…

Well, I'm not the kind
To wallow in sties--
The pigs tend to snort
And your face gets flies!
The pigs I feed on
Are bacon that’s fried;
Now it’s 24/7
Headlines get plastered with these

Swine viruses!
People in masks appearing not too bright!
Oh, swine viruses!
This little piggy thinks he won’t stay home tonight…

Germs evolve and this one, it seems, started with birds;
And now the mutated DNA mixed in pig turds
Ends up in mucus we spray!

The economy’s tanking,
There’s Iraq and Iran;
There’s pirates and bombings
In Afghanistan;
Also North Korea,
Darfur and G.M.;
So why’s everyone
Stressing and obsessing over

Swine viruses?
Overreacting like a herd in flight--
Swine viruses!
Science is mixin’ up a vaccine clone tonight!

That was a great OS, and you've done a real "swine" job on the parody. LOL

Pigs may not have wings, but this parody certainly does. Well done!

Thanks, alvin, Mark, Smeg and Heads. Days of swine and noses, eh?

Could swine flu be contracted by writing about it as well? (Just kidding!) Yep, swine viruses are spreading so I made sure to keep my face covered while walking among the crowds. I echo all comments above. As Mark says, a real "swine" job! 555.
