The Lyrics

I've seen the doctor,
About this nagging coughing;
Brought up this "pastey" goo,
I thought it was the flu;
So I say "Aaah!" for the doctor,
I hope he doesn't yank me! (phlegm)

I took some aspirin,
Along with Theraflu, too
Threw up all over you,
It sure looks bad on you;
So when you change your pajamas,
I know you'll feel much better

It will come back on you,
It will come back on you,
Then, you start to cough (up)...
And then its bottoms up,
It's that "bug" that's goin' round...

Doesn't look complete to me.

Mr. Critic - I have investigated your allegations in true private eye fashion and have discovered that you are correct in your observations of this song not looking complete. It actually has six verses not three. After verse three there is an instrumental break, then verse four is a re-do of verse two. Verse five is a redo of verse three with a change up on the last line. Verse three OS last line says "It your favorite foreign moive". Verse five and six change that line to read - it's your very foreign movie. Verse six is the lead out and basically re-does verse three into a slow fade out.

I have found this OS to have been parodied four times on this site and all four have only three verses. All the lyrics sites that I have visited provide only three verses and I think this is why all the parodies on this OS on this site are short. I have the OS on CD and it is indeed six verses long. It can be accessed on Youtube and that version is exactly the same as my CD. Watch for this OS in a parody later this week. It will indeed have six verses written.
