The Lyrics

Yeah, you know what flu I'm talkin' about...
Got it from a friend who
Got it from a pig who's
A Mexican now it's spreadin' around

They say it's a contagion
That you picked up on the weekend
They're talkin' about how it's bringin' you down.

If it's in the neighborhood
Then you know it ain't too good
For the sniffles to go on down the line

But I'm tellin' you babe
That you've got the flu, babe
And it all started from a little swine

If you got the runs baby
If you need some aspirin baby
Then I don't want you around

Cuz I don't sneeze yet
Not for a minute
You better be gone if your nose is on the run

You're hatin' the stupid dwine
That gave you your puffy eyes
You're sick and tired of the bacon

If a fever's comin'
If the temp. is really risin'
Just thank God it's not avian

If you got the runs baby
If you need some Kleenex baby
Then I don't want you around

Cuz I'm not sick yet
Not for a minute
You better be gone if your nose is gonna run
[Repeat 3 times]

Heard it from a friend who
Heard it from a friend who
Heard it from another that
You're dead in the ground...
