The Lyrics

From October to May when the sun's gone away
We long for the summer's hot swelter
But with that warm spell comes a creature from hell
Who sends us all running for shelter

Last night I went out for a brief walkabout
To view starry heavens above me
When I was attacked from the front and the back
By a demon who took my blood from me

He buzzes and bites, he's a damn parasite
And he ain't no respecter of persons
To him you're just meat, though you're slathered in Deet
And he drives you to swattin' and cursin'

Would Pharaoh of old be so cocky and bold
When Moses demanded his freedom
If up from the Nile came the ultimate trial
The attack of the Northern Mosquito?

Your try's pretty good, but we've all understood that the original song's a lot longer. Come up with new verse, to better, not worse, and your parody will be so much stronger.

I think the purpose of entering comments is to encourage people, I hope, not to try to upstage them with a witty little ditty. Those people should try writing the parody in its ENTIRETY and see how "easy" it is.

Michael--I would have come up with more verses, but I am swatting all these damn mosquitoes! (I'll try, though.)

This is a gem! Too bad rhyming skill is not a voting category.
