The Lyrics

I wondered why Nyquil used to make me woozy--then I read the ingredients label.
That Nyquil High
by Miss Mozell

It started with a sniff,
only one of those.
But then it turned into one mother of a stuffy nose.
And though I was in denial,
'bout the flu I might have caught,
help I sought,
and so some medicine I bought.

And so I went
down to Walgreens.
I walked past the pain relievers
straight on to cold remedies.

Didn't want no Alka-Seltzer.
Couldn't use no Tylenol.
There is just one panacea
and I know it cures it all!

It's minty green.
It tastes like crud.
But it has alcohol enough
to warm the blood.

There might be others
but I admit I've never looked.
Cause if I didn't lie,
Well, I'd just admit I'm hooked.

Oh me, Oh my
that Nyquil high!
I was feeling just so rotten
thought that I would die.
Then I took a single shot
and liked it quite a lot,
that Nyquil high,
that Nyquil high.
Yeah, yeah.



Now I don't need no MD20
if I want a high.
I'll be chugging ten ounce bottles
till the day I die.
And when I need an alibi
for all the Nyquil that I drink
there's the flu,
so I just say I caught it, too.



I cough and wheeze.
I blow my nose.
I say my sinuses are bad,
then take another dose.
And no one knows about my jones
except the pharmacist, I think.
The last time that I bought my fix,
the guy gave me a wink.



Costs a mint.
Sometimes I think
I'd get off cheaper
buying peppermint schnapps to drink.

There might be others
but I admit I've never looked.
Cause if I didn't lie,
Well, I'd just admit I'm hooked.

Oh me, Oh my
that Nyquil high!
Nothing can replace it,
just don't ask me why.
I don't try to understand,
I'm just grateful for the brand.
That Nyquil high,
That Nyquil high.
Yeah, yeah.

Great job, an over-the-counter-drug-parody! 555 fluid ounces!

Now Johnny, that's just wrong! I love NyQuil... it's like the poorman's morphiene

So when's "Johnny's Book Of Cocktails" coming out? I thought the powdered whiskers from electric shaver was a lovely touch. Would definitely add a certain je ne sais quoi (otherwise known as a "WTF's that?")

I hear ya loud and clear. That stuff always does it for me. I almost look forward to a cold or flu just for the mood altering properties that it seems to have. And may I add that your parody was quite good. Great use of wordage in the rhyming scheme.

JD - I liked your recipe. I'll have to try that the next time I get a clog in the sink. Is it better than Drano?
