"Migraine Catastrophe"

The Lyrics

This is dedicated to everyone out there who gets them - I know exactly how much fun they aren't. This parody was yet another that I came up with at work - shelf-stacking leaves my head free to come up with these things.
Can I escape it?
It's not my fantasy
Head in a vice grip
No escape from the agony
Can't open eyes
Or look to the sky - too bright
I'm in such pain here - need more than aspirin
"Cause with cheese it comes, sleep it goes
No such high, feeling low
Any way to kill it - look up one of those for me, for me

Migraine just struck again
Put a gun against my head
"Cause I feel like I am dead
Migraine - it has just begun
And now I have to throw away my day

Yes, it means to make me cry
Don't think I'll be at work this time tomorrow
Carry on? Oh, get lost!
Ibuprofen matters

Too late - the pain has come
Light dance before my eyes
It can truly mesmerise
Goodbye for today - I'm going to bed
Going to leave you all behind to go to sleep
It does mean to make me cry
Sometimes wish I never ate cheese at all

I see a little of my normal eyesight vision
Flashing light, flashing light, you look so like fireworks
Christmas fairy lights are really, really blinding me
Switch the light off, switch the light off
Get cold flannel, get cold flannel
Switch the light off - make it dark, oh make it dark!

I'm in such pain here - nobody touch me
Do I inherit it from my poor family?
Spare me my time from this fresh agony
Easy come, not to go, will it let me go?
Painkiller! No, it will not let me go - let me go
Painkiller! No, it will not let me go - let me go
Painkiller! No, it will not let me go - let me go
It's here now for hours - yes it's here
Here for six hours - yes it's here
Here for six hours - oh
Pain, pain, pain, pain, pain, pain, pain
Oh ibuprofen, ibuprofen, ibuprofen, ibuprofen let me go
Beelzebub put a pickaxe right inside my head
My head
My head

So it think it can floor me and mess with my eyes
So it forces me to bed - feel like I will die
No, migraine - don't do this to me migraine
Just can't get out, just can't get out of this bed

Ooh yes, ooh yes
Ibuprofen matters
Any of it, please
Ibuprofen matters, ibuprofen matters to me

You did some superb pacing things here ('painkiller' was great). Well my aunt has terrible migraine which in the worst case is accompanied by barfing and you must know what kind of torture it is, so because it's so nasty, unfortunately I could only give you a 3 for funny today. But that doesn't mean I didn't like this parody I actually thought it was well put together.

It only hurts when I laugh. Maybe you wouldn't have such headaches if you didn't listen to so much loud music. LOL. Five doses of Aleve.

Thanks. I sort of wish I hadn't written this because the following day I got one. It was just one of those parodies that came out of nowhere.
