The Lyrics

Your eyes are red, your lips are not
Your nose is full of snot
Your heart sweats, your body shakes
Another puss is all it takes

You can't sleep, you can't eat
There's no doubt, you're up s**t creek
Your throat is tight, you can't breathe
Another puss - that's all you need

Aaah-choo
You like to think that you're immune to all that, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you can't stroke or pat
You know you're gonna have to face it
You're allergic to cats

You see the signs, but you can't read
You think your eyes will bleed
You heart aches it feels like lead
Another puss and you'll be dead, a blown up head

You can't be saved
A clear nose is what you crave
You can't find some more tissues
There's none left here to use

Aaah-choo
You like to think that you're immune to all that, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you can't stroke or pat
You know you're gonna have to face it
You're allergic to cats

Might as well face it, you're allergic to cats(5x)

Your eyes are red, your lips are not
Your nose is full of snot
Your heart sweats, your body shakes
Another puss is all it takes

Aaah-choo
You like to think that you're immune to all that, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you can't stroke or pat
You know you're gonna have to face it
You're allergic to cats

Might as well face it, you're allergic to cats(5x)

Great song--it's just that some of the lines were the same as the original song, but they fit perfectly here too. Good job! :)

I just found this, thanks to lebeiw's comment.... this is great! :-D

Thanks, guys :-) Leb - it's something I aim for: if you can use the original words but in a different context, such that they mean something different, or in this case apply to something different... that makes for the "perfect" parody, in theory anyway.

My Mother (God rest her soul) was allergic to cats, so when I read this parady, I was thinking of my Mother. It made me laugh. At the same time, it brought tears to my eyes. I miss her sooooooooooo much! (sniff) (sob) (blow)!

I'm allergic to cats as well, but I haven't had an allergic reaction to a cat since 1995.

Bytheway, great parody.

Well done, good pacing, very funny. Hey, I'll be your first stalker if it makes you feel better.
Phil Alexander - November 20, 2003 - Report this comment
:-) It'd have to be sort of a long-distance stalking, though... hey, that sounds a bit like that "never let her slip away" song, you know the one: "Stalked by a lady on the telephone, long distance"

Yup, straight fives from another allergy sufferer! Thanks for shedding some light on this!

I thought it was great! Miss Peaches (my full blood Persian), though, has a slightly different view.
