The Lyrics

when your lungs...have bubbles
and its getting out of hand
and something...
whoa, something ain't feeling right
drop your head...and take in steam
and soon it just might clear
you'll bring phlegm up
hope it is clear or white

your infection's to blame
which you spread wherever you can
your lung's running...oh yeah, baby
you'll steam it again
there it clings...mucked on the walls
man, you'd like to lose it all
till you breathe air...yeah yeah yeah
you cough up phlegm

if the sight...disturbs you
if its dark and you're in doubt
see the doc, my friend...
cause that phlegm must go
keep well dressed in sweaters
no fun, are you allowed
the reaper may be knocking upon your door

your infection's to blame
which you spread wherever you can
your lung's running...oh yeah, baby
you'll steam it again
there it clings...mucked on the walls
man, you'd like to lose it all
till you breathe air...yeah yeah yeah

hey, ain't it good to blow...
when you cough up phlegm
seems that you've got a cold
it hurts you...to go ker-choo
and it gets real old...when you're phlegmy
oh yeah...and you're always phlegmy

your infection's to blame
which you spread wherever you can
your lung's running...oh yeah, baby
you'll steam it again
there it clings...mucked on the walls
man, you'd like to lose it all
till you breathe air...yes you will
you cough up phlegm
you cough up phlegm
ain't it good to blow
when you cough up phlegm
ain't it good to blow
when you cough up phlegm
