The Lyrics

The album parody continues...
(I need my)
(I need my tissues, please)
(I need my)
(I need my tissues, please)
(I need my)
(I need my tissues, please)
(I need my)
(I need my tissues, please)

Huh
Now look at my nostrils, got the influenza
Although with lozenges I'm fully stocked
They ain't workin', still got influenza
Sneezin' and coughin' and my nose is blocked

No, they ain't workin', still got influenza
Tissue boxes don't leave my sight
Got a lot of mucus in my left-hand nostril
Got a lot of mucus in my right

I got to find another solution
Check the cupboards for remedies
I got to buy some nasal inhalers
I got to kill this rotten disease

More mucus forming in my nostrils when I wake up
No breathing in or out that way
That awful coughing got my throat in deep pain
That awful coughing wakes the neighbours each day

I got to find another solution
Check the cupboards for remedies
I got to buy some nasal inhalers
I got to kill this rotten disease

Cough-a-cough-a
Huh

(Got to find another solution)
(Check the cupboards for remedies)
I got to buy some nasal inhalers
(Got to kill this rotten disease)

Look at me coughin'

I shoulda known to keep myself safe
I shoulda known to stay inside
Look out there, buddy, those germs are lurkin' in the atmosphere
They come up from all sides

They got me sick, makin' wet, raspy noises
I'm goin' through the tissues like a raging bull
But I'm not healin', still got influenza
And I'm sneezin' and coughin' and my nose is full

I got to find another solution
Check the cupboards for remedies
I got to buy some nasal inhalers
I got to kill this rotten disease

Listen here
Now, I ain't healin', still got influenza
Although with lozenges I'm fully stocked
I ain't healin', still got influenza
Sneezin' and coughin' and my nose is blocked

Sneezin' and coughin', nose is blocked
And I'm sneezin' and coughin' and my nose is blocked
Ooh, sneezin' and coughin' and my nose is blocked
And I'm sneezin' and coughin' and my nose is blocked

(Sneezin' and coughin')
Got me, got me sneezin' and coughin', nose is blocked
And I'm sneezin' and coughin' and my nose is blocked
(And I'm sneezin' and coughin' and my nose is blocked)
What's that?
(And I'm sneezin' and coughin' and my nose is blocked)
Cough it up, cough it up

Sneezin' and coughin'
(I need my, I need my)
And my nose is blocked
(I need my tissues, please)
Sneezin' and coughin'
(I need my, I need my)
And my nose is blocked
(I need my tissues, please)

And I'm sneezin' and coughin'
(I need my, I need my)
And my nose is blocked
(I need my tissues, please)
And I'm sneezin' and coughin'
(I need my, I need my)
And my nose is blocked
(I need my tissues, please)

Sneezy, sneezy
Sneezin' and coughin'
(I need my, I need my)
Sneezy, sneezy
Nose is blocked
(I need my tissues, please)
Sneezy, sneezy
Sneezin' and coughin'
(I need my, I need my)
And my nose is blocked
(I need my tissues, please)

I ain't healin'

(Sneezin' and coughin')
(Nose is blocked)
(Sneezin' and coughin')
(Nose is blocked)

When you're out with your honey,
And your nose feels runny,
Some may thnk it funny,
But it snot.

Thanks everybody. Guy - the weather's kind of erratic where I live, and flu season seems to be whenever I have it... like right now, for example. It always gets me sooner or later.
