"Pills Made By Pfizer"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This parody is about what would likely happen if I had Munchhausen syndrome (a mental illness in which people feign grave illness and/or severe injury in order to obtain attention and sometimes drugs) and hypochondria (which I really do have to some extent).
Anemia, flesh-eatin’ germs
Heart attack, liver cancer
Leukemia
Bad diseases, I feign
I cut myself and they sew me up

So many times, I have no control
I’ll sell my soul to the devil
For ‘tention
From a medical doc
He’s the one that will keep me alive

I want the pills made by Pfizer
And by Merck and Upjohn
Swallow them every day
‘Cause I’m dyin’
And my medical doctor
Thinks that I am insane
And he's cuttin’ me off from
Merck and Pfizer

Every day, I will go down
To the ER for some treatment
I chug it down
Ipecac, syrup of
To make ‘em think there’s somethin’ wrong

Gimme the pills made by Pfizer
And by Merck and Upjohn
Swallow them every day
‘Cause I’m dyin’
And my medical doctor
Thinks that I am insane
And he's cuttin’ me off from
Merck and Pfizer

Locked me up, on the nut ward
In leg irons
And a locked straitjacket
Andria has no drugs to survive

‘Cause she’s locked on the nut ward
For Munchhausen Syndrome
Medicated, restrained
And sedated
And she’s got hypochondra
Claimed diseases, was weird
And she’s locked up for life
‘Cause of the pills from Pfizer

And ipecac syrup

And self-amputation

False claims to the doctor

Self-harm, she inflicted

This is NOT autobiographical!

Here was me expecting a parody about a.. ahem.. different sort of pills made by Pfizer. You've got hypochondria? I've got a placebo here you can take for that...
alvin - May 26, 2009 - Report this comment

Gari J - May 26, 2009 - Report this comment
So thats where you got that idea of And ipecac syrup from Andria nice parody like the chorus very much 555
Andria - May 26, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks Phil, I might do another version of this with a Viagra theme, possibly on both Whatfreaks and AmIRight, thanks Alvin, lol, and thanks Gari, yeah, that's where I got the idea, along with an older "Family Guy" episode in which Peter, Chris, Stewie and Brian chug syrup of ipecac and royally befoul the living room.

Very high on the parody, Andria! Clever usage of big words/medical terminology (such as leukemia, Munchhausen Syndrome, and hypochondria) in your song. My mom, who's a nurse also deals with those kinds of patients who take Pfizer. Self-amputation, mental institution...it's a morbid condition. I myself get hypochondria as well. Very impressive parody! 555's!

Thanks, Christie. Pfizer is a very large and very old company, making much more than Viagra and psychiatric drugs.

I think I might use this one in EBA AmIRight edition. I haven't looked at the other 2, yet. 555
