The Lyrics

This is written in an "entertaining fashion", in order to bring to light how are country has to pick up the ball and get a handle on all these new diseases before they wipe us all out. I truly feel sorry for anyone suffering from either of these horrid viruses.
I have to eat but it might mean my life
Our country's standards causing too much strife
More vaccinations don't know what to do
I got the Bird Flu Pneumonia and a dose of New Swine Flu

We can't be safe all our food is so raunch
Serving hot dogs is like a missile launch
Hope Obama gets these germs all removed
I got the Bird Flu Pneumonia and a dose of New Swine Flu

Hope investigations will save the day
I contain more germs than the FDA
Keep USA safe from these mangy foods
I got the Bird Flu Pneumonia and a dose of New Swine Flu

Don't ignore problems that are not name tagged
Does Gucci make a colostomy bag?
All pitch in and find solutions to use
I got the Bird Flu Pneumonia and a dose of New Swine Flu

In the future let's not bring these germs home
Next up are locusts like the days of Rome
Our strong nation should figure out what to do
I got the Bird Flu Pneumonia and a dose of New Swine Flu

Mark, I thought I smelled a TTribuTTe coming in the next couple of weeks (bend over 'n spread 'em, dude), but "to bring to light how *are* country..." just blew it!

j/k. Great title switch... wish someone would mock the hype-scare media frenzy. Avoidance, simple: Don't sleep with pigs. 555 (sheep, of course, are Kosher-nooky -- no fools, those O.T. guys.)
