The Lyrics

I know, I know. SARS is not funny. But maybe a song about it can be.
You Can Leave Your Mask On

Welcome back from Hong Kong!
........Gone long?
Been to any good bars?
Any hint of SARS?
Tell me what have you missed?
Kiss, kiss, kiss

You can leave your mask on
No, please leave your mask on
Best to leave your mask on

Speech gets muffled a bit
.......Tough shit
Suc_ĺňur food through a straw
......Cole slaw
I know you're feelin' the stress
Yes, yes, yes

You can leave your mask on
Baby, leave your mask on
Leave your g#%!amn mask on

Go to the back yard
And burn all your clothes....
No, all your clothes!
Now come back here
And go through this sprayer
That's right
Raise your hands up into the air
......Bleach 'em
You give me a reason to fear
You give me a reason to fear
You give me a reason to fear

A vicious virus stalking
So afraid that you'll cough
I guess Toronto is off?
They don't know what caused this
They don't know what caused this
They don't know what caused this
They don't know what caused this
I know--want gloves, dear?

But that's kind of what we're here for, isn't it? To try and inject a little humour into life, whether life wants it there or not: I thought this was quite a witty idea as an antidote to some of the ill-informed scaremongering there has been about SARS.

Agreed , most of what is in the media is blown up beyond proportion. Your real chance of getting sars is still remote, unless you live in China.

Excellent parody Bob! The second to the last segment had me cracking up - I could hear it perfectly! :-D
