The Lyrics

For this to be funny you have to both see Muppet treasure Island and read the Mary Russell series by Laurie R. King. By the way, I cut out some of the song. It's not complete. The German part means "We've got Russellitis we spend all our time reading Russell books"
I've got Russellitis it's eating away my brain
I've got Russellitis it's driving friends insane
We got Russellitis, we're flipping through the pages
On all the hardback Russell books we're spending all our wages

We got Russellitis, we've lost what sense we had
We got Russellitis, we're all going mad

We've got Russellitis
No if's, and's, or but's
Since we've confessed
That we're obsessed
Our friends have thought we're nuts

Ach du liebe, wir haben Russellitis
Wir geben alle unsere
Zeitmesswert Russell Bücher aus.

I've got Russellitis
I think I've lost my grip
I'd like to get my hands on
Whoever wrote this script

Russellitis has ravaged all aboard
This once proud household has become an utter psycho ward
We were reading, reading, hiding who knows where
But now though we're all here
We're not all there

This song should've been in the misheard lyrics section then in the parodies section because this song from Muppet Treasure Island is something not everybody knows of.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
