The Lyrics

This is autobiographical. It all happened to me in some shape or form. I had completed this parody when I realized that "hayfever" corresponds beautifully with the title "The Way We Were." But I failed to make a hayfever (my most tenacious of allergies) parody work when I tried. So I changed it back. Please report any grammar errors or other inconsistencies. Note: the "hms" are all short because I have a hard time humming with a full nose. And I realize Barbra only uses two syllables in the word "memories" but I'm used to the pronunciation of Gladys Knight and Ren and Stimpy.
hm, hm
hm, hm, hm, hm, hm, hm, hm
hm, hm, hm, hm, hm, hm
hm, hm, hm, hm, hm

hm, allergies
like the snot, pollen-inticed
nose runs through a thousand hankeys
I've got hayfever

scattered pimples
of the sun that madly shines
shining pains me more than ohothers
sunny days are woooooooooorst

can it rea...lly be that simmm-ple to prevent
with a pill that's ta-ken every tiiiiiiiiiiiiiime?
if there is a chance it's acting up again
tell me, would I?
should I?

shampoo's making my... skin swell
it's too... painful for an ointment
it's simply too far advaaaaaaaaaanced
so I'm allergic
it's almost turgid
but part of how it's working
how my body works
or doesn't... work...

hm, hm
hm, hm, hm, hm, hm, hm, hm
hm, hm, hm, hm, hm
