Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Despite some medical warnings, it remains my second-favorite drug, behind Vicodin. Most of us know the Rod Stewart version of the song. Tim Hardin also wrote "If I Were a Carpenter," but then, listening to the Carpenters (who also recorded "Reason to Believe") gives me a reason for Aleve.
If I listened long enough to you
I'd find the pain in my head, around and through
knowing that it hurts in spasms and spurts.
Still my head hurts, that's the reason... for Aleve.

Some docs like you make it hard to take
the pills of someone else.
Some docs like you make it easy to shake
all those bottles down from the shelf.

If I gave the time for pills to work
I'd find a way to believe you're not a jerk
knowing that it hurts in spasms and spurts.
Still my head hurts, that's the reason... for Aleve.

(instrumental break)

I used to swear by Aleve (and will still use it in a pinch) but have moved on to Advil Liqui-gels. I know...you wanted to know that. =) 5s, MP.

So I guess you and Merry won't be... or would you not have been anyway?

Of course, I meant you and PIPPIN won't be... you two "guys" have been messing with our heads for too long.
