The Lyrics

Nose Notes II.

Zaps my sinuses; they've caved in
It's bugging my nose—right nostril and left.
I blow, but still, I itch.
When I blow into my hankie,
The noise sounds just like a swelling gale.
Can't blow it free:

Timothy, timothy, why does earth make it grow?
Timothy, timothy, it clogs up my nose.

Tear ducts, they swell, there's no relief
I blow, try to expel these motes
That dust up histamines.
With some water I drink down two
Yellow pills that claim to stop the sniffs—
Forget it! More achoos.

Timothy, timothy. My nose is dripping goo.
Timothy, timothy. A-a-a-ahcoo!

Some dust packs my snout, compounding then
The root cause of these vexing allergies.
I might try Dayquil, friend!
My red nose is full as it can be. . .
I'll just have to go out and mow down
All signs of timothy.

I've been meaning to write you a note for some time. Since you don't seem to be getting notes on this clever ditty, I thought I'd sum up here. First, congrats for coming on here like gangbusters, I did the same thing. (So did Agri) And we all did it hitting a lot of Beatle songs. I suspect that like me, you had a backlog of things to put on. I don't get into the heavy political satire much, but I admire your output and I like many of the other ones. I'm looking forward to your bio. As for the song above, I recommend the original to everyone here who has not heard it. And I never made the connection that you did in order to write yours.

I thought this was a great parody! Very clever! I've been trying to think of something to do with this song for a long time, but all I could come up with was "Plymouthy"! ;-D
