The Lyrics

Our esteemed colleague and parody writer extroadinaire, Rick Duncan, has been down with a bad case of the flu lately. I made a remark yesterday that we should try to write something for him. So I had to do it. Hope you like it, Rick. And hope you're feeling better real soon.
You just go "achoo"
'Cause you've got the flu
Lot of pills you take
Your poor head still aches
'Cause you've got the flu

You don't look too good
Don't feel as you should
You are ill at ease
Try to catch some zee's
'Til you're better, dude

And you just sneeze
Hack and cough and wheeze
How your stomach aches
It's more than you can take

Nose is running, too
And you feel like poo
You are feeling blue
Not much you can do
'Cause you've got the flu

Now you're sick and you're feeling just like crap
You close your eyes just to try and take a nap
Your nose it runs and it's dripping with loose snot
You feel your head and your temperature is hot
You may just barf as you drop down to your knees

Remedies you take
Don't your fever break
Now your poor head aches
And your stomach quakes
'Cause you've got the flu

Now you've got the flu
Not much you can do
You just go "achoo"

I'm really touched that you did this, and I got a laugh out of it (Through the wheezing.) I'm sure this will apply to many, since this is supposed to be a very bad flu season. Even though I could barely get out of bed for three days, one thing kept me going. Must....write....parody.....for .......today.....scribble...type...enter... collapse.....(back to bed)

Get well soon, Rick! This was so realistic, I had an urge to sneeze! 5's

You know you've arrived when: You come down with the flu, and poets are writing verse about it. The verse you feel, the more they write. 5-5-5

Rick D - I'm glad you enjoyed it. Hardly anything sucks worse than a bad case of the flu. I know it gets me down and anything that can make me laugh, smile or even form an ironic grimace is a welcome distraction from the misery. I've been writing poems and parodies for people at work for the last couple years and I know they always get a kick out of it. In fact I just wrote one today for my boss who tried so very hard to save our jobs. I might post it along with some comments to the people I work(ed) with even though no one else on the site will know some of the references I make. Oh, also - thanks for the comment on "Don't Peek". I figure that since we are in a new millenium I ought to at least try to get myself into the previous decade. Johnny D, Adagio, Rice Cube, & David Chrenko: Thanks for the "bon mots".

Raves for this superior paced and funny parody. And feel better Rick.

I want everybody to know this online banter and well wishes has really cheered me up today. I'm a bit stunned that people who only know me through my whimsical ditties give a hoot. That's it. Drinks are on me! I'll take mine with a little cough syrup!

Parodies about illness and disease are always funny, aren't they? Get well soon Rick, and good job Paul.

Yuck! I like this one! And finally I can put away the ten-foot pole, too!
Agrimorfee - December 09, 2003 - Report this comment
This one would be good for a musical Get Well Card!

Just to say thanks to all for the nice comments on this one. I'm glad you all enjoyed it. I have to give credit to Rick for inspiring it. After all, if he hadn't dragged himself out of bed, produced some parodies and posted them (and his remarks) I wouldn't have known he was ailing. I don't think I could write a decent parody if I were feeling that lousy. Except maybe a repetitive "Go away and leave me alone" line. I was working with the original song on another theme that sort of worked but I wasn't sure it would pass the "smell test". I'm glad I changed course. I take it from Mari D's remark that Rick is past the worst now and doing better. Mari, sick people in the house...no fun, huh?

Yeah, now she's got it. The achoo's on the other foot.
