The Lyrics

Having been knocked out by a horrible case of the man flu that during its peak had me praying for swift release by death during sleep I finally got up again and started looking for an original song to match the phrase "under the weather" that I could use for a parody song and to write off remaining angst. I came up with "lipstick and leather" by the great 80s band Y & T, a four man act that had everything Van Halen had (except for a good band name, commercial hits and worldwide fame) and though I haven't listened that much to them over the last years I must say that the albums "In rock we trust" (1984) and especially "Down for the count" (1985) IMHO have survived the test of time.

A YouTube version of "Lipstick and leather" can currently be found here:
I am sick
I'll admit
I have scratched
I'm unfit
I am blotched around
Stuck on can
Huff and puff
And I kinda slough
And I never knew my brain cells could be so riled
I haven't been down like this in awhile

Under the weather
Stuck in bed
Under the weather
Viral infection's made a mess of my head

I feel scrapped
I feel maimed
Muscles' cracked
And veins feel drained
It puts me down
Slap me round
Lungs feel halved
And boy I've ralphed

I'm unsteady, chilling, almost deceased
Such days are hell - when you're down on your knees
So I - had me some grogs that I couldn't contain
There's now a green, green slime that fills my bedroom domain

Under the weather
Legs of lead
Under the weather
And swelled head

The flu gets you down
Red face like a traffic light
And when it has you down
Fever, high, makes you burn all night

Under the weather
Bod is red
Under the weather

I have spit
I have crutched
First aid kit
Helped like shit
It has knocked me down
I need a ME back up
Yeah, I've lost it all
And my wind from cough
Holy shit - I'm just nerve tract remains
Reddish-brown when I pee
And I pill-pop for pain

Under the weather
Almost dead
Cos this viral infection's caused abyss in my head

Under the weather
Stuck in bed
Under the weather
Think I'm dead
Under the weather
