The Lyrics

The barf bag is out I'm ready to hurl
I suffer here propped up by the rail
I hate to wake you up to ease my plight
But my gut is wrenchin' and it's nearly torn
The doctor's waitin' at the clinic'c door
Already I'm so seasick I could die

Chorus:

So lead me and talk for me
Tell me he'll prescribe for me
Show me 'cause I don't know where to go
'Cause I'm heavin' off a cruise ship
Don't know where the boat's clinic is
Oh no, I have to blow

There's to many steps I'm goin' down
So many turns I've turned around
I tell you now, I don't know a thing
Every pace I pace, I heave and puke
Every step I step, I greive and puke
When I get there, I'll need some dramamine

(Repeat Chorus)

Now the Doc has come to see me
One quick look he seems to freeze
Blood shot eyes and pasty face
Doc quickly prescribes some drugs
Now I won't have to heave so much
About this time, Any price I'll pay

(Repeat Chorus)

Lionel - I thought the pace and subject were moving along real well but the final verse seemed to lose the pace and didn't move the humor forward at all, actually it went backwards a bit. Still, I went 4-4-4 because I did really like it up until then. I would have tried to "raise the ante" in that verse, I hope you don't mind me throwing this possible lyric out there: Now the Doctor’s here; I’m still barfin’ Poked my nuts, said “beg your pardon, you’re not looking well at all, my friend” From in his bag he grabbed a tube and then pulled out some “Anal Lube” Winked at me, said “soon you’ll be OK” (then the final chorus part - you might try and see if that could be ramped up beyond the earlier chorus's, too...) I have liked a number of the pieces you've posted here so far...you've got a pretty good touch, I think.

Lionel, I concur with Paul's comments, I thought the concept was good though!
