The Lyrics

I wrote this around 1982-83, and it has been played on Dr. Demento frequently since I sent it to him around 1990. I think I found another song someone did, using my same parody title, but mine was probably written years ahead of that
Hello Dristan® my old friend
I've come to snort you once again
Because my hay fever is acting up
And nasal drainage may soon erupt
Decongestion has been clogging up my brain
What a pain
I'm wheezing [WHEEZE] the sounds of sinus

When mucous really runs astray
A box of puffs can save the day
NeoSynephrine's got a hold on me
But it don't help my nasal cavities
I'm addicted to contact and Nyquil too
It's not the flu
I'm sniffling [SNORT] the sounds of sinus

And in the garbage can I saw
10,000 Kleenex maybe more
I got some green pills from a friend next door
They last three hours if I'm lucky four
Medications only aggravate my allergies [SNEEZE]
See what I mean?
I'm sneezing the sounds of sinus

A different approach.

Story of my life. I've been free of mucous for a week or so now, after depleting the supermarkets of tissues, but reading this makes me feel the old battle scars again. Grand hayfever parody. 'Snot bad' doesn't cover it.

The hills are alive with the sound of mucus? (What can I do, John Barry took my first-choice line.)

Inspired idea, I believe this song was predicted centuries ago by Nostrildamus.

Rex, for that pun... Up your nose with a rubber hose!

I thoroughly enjoy this parody and have for about thirty years. I didn’t get it as much when I was I kid, but Afrin, unfortunately has become my go to this week to get any kind of sleep. Where did this song go? I can’t find it any more
