The Lyrics

I've got a hunch it's returning
That old fever is burning
I'm sick, I know

Oh, it's a hard time
'Cause I feel my poor throat is achin'
These tablets I'm takin' now
Are working too slow

Don't you know I need some fast relief
Some better medication
Because the state I'm in just isn't very nice

Now it seems I need a Plan B
Should I have an operation?
If it does the job, won't care about the price

Drowning my sorrows in ice cream
It sure is a nice dream
That I'll get well soon

If symptoms were money
Well, I'd be insanely wealthy
Don't think I'll be healthy
Till some time around June

Now my throat's inflamed for the seventh time
The bug just won't leave this throat of mine
It's hard for folks to hear the words I say

I'm losin' all my appetite
And I seem to hate the migraines more each day

I've had enough of this illness
If I have to kill this
Won't hesitate

I'll put my foot down
Before this mean illness licks me
Go out and make some doctor fix me
(Make some doctor fix me)
I'm gonna make some doctor fix me
Before it's too late

This was a really good job on a pretty tough (for me) song, Aussie!! 5's

Great Job Aussie! I keep trying to do this song but can't think of a good one. This works well.

Thanks guys. You're right, Adagio, this song was kinda tough to work with, but the upshot of having had tonsillitis three times is that it made this parody easier to write. Stupid tonsils.

Also - I must give a mention to Paul Robinson, whose flu-related parody from the other day helped to inspire this one. Thanks, Paul.

Aussie, Thanks for the kudos. Excellent job on this one. I noticed the "buzz" on this on the comments board but had been too busy to take a look at it until this morning. Not only is the pace spot-on but the word flow is almost exactly in sync with the original, which, as Adagio mentioned, is quite unconventional.

Bad Tonsils run in out familiy. Great use of an Eagles song.

Now I won't be able to listen to the original without thinking of your parody. Always a good sign.
