The Lyrics

* (For the pacing, fever should be one syllable, or two syllables sung quickly to fill the space of the original song)
It’s rag-weed season
My nostrils are clogged
And I cannot breathe
The phlegm tickling my sore throat
The itching of my eyes
Oh no, I coughed too much
I hacked it up

That’s me at the counter
That’s me in the drug store
Filling my prescription
Trying to fight off the flu
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no, I took too much
My stomach will be pumped
I thought that I would feel better
I thought that I’d try Visine
I thought it’d make my eyes less dry

Later that evening
Despite my mojo power, I'm
Losing my erection
Trying to wake it up for you
So I got my Viagra stash, flash
Oh no, I took too long
To get it up
Consider Vicks
Consider Vicks
If you cannot fall asleep
Consider Vicks
The night--time wheezing
Sniffling Sneez-ing
Coughing Aching Stuffyhead
Fever* so you can rest
Medicine, it rocks!
I hope that I’ll soon be snoring
I hope that I’ll fall asleep
I took so much I think I’m high

I took one for the team
And tried the clear and cream

That’s me in the dugout
That’s me at the Balco
Filling my prescription
Trying to keep up with youth
Now my head is disproportionate
Oh no, it grew too much
Now Congress called me up
I thought it would make me stronger
I thought it would help my swing
I thought it’d help me catch some flies

But what was in that cream?
H-G-H-yikes
Congress sure was steamed
When is cream, not just cream
Cream

Even if this wasn't great (which it is) you'd still get my 555 just for fitting "The night-time wheezing Sniffling Sneezing Coughing Aching Stuffy Head Fever so you can rest Medicine" into a parody.

We missed you in the first Decathlon round, and although this isn't blues or swing it's one hell of a commerical!!!

filled me with laughter.....the best medicine available

You and Syncronos.... As Rex said, congrats on making Contac.... (or is it Nyquil?) and for slashing the Bonds of this hopelessly inane OS. 555

555 cc's of funny

Hee! This is excellent, Jeff, and I have to echo Rex's comment...that little feat was pretty fan-freaking-tastic, buddy!

Reading this cured my sore throat and cold..top job

Sputum-arvellous, Jeff...and its great to see you posting regularly again (I hope!) 555
Red Ant - October 28, 2007 - Report this comment
Beautifully done, though it's NyQuil, not Vicks, with that slogan. Changing "Consider Vicks" to "Oh NyQuil's bliss" or something similar would take care of that. Nice jab at Balco, too. Take 5s and call me in the morning.

Thanks Alvin, Tommy T, PMS, Arwen, AFW, Kristof, and Red Ant. Red Ant...Nyquil is a Vicks product (go to Vicks.com)

I "Stand" corrected. =)

(ABC4) "Consider Vicks" was SUCH a perfect sub, Jeff, that I'll be damned if it wasn't your starting point for this idea, but I also loved "Now my head is disproportionate" - because I'm ALWAYS in at my doctors complaining "I dunno doc, my head feels all sort of disproportionate, you know?" - LOL - 555

(ABC) *hack* *cough* Here's some *wheeze* 5s for ya, Jeff. This had me grinning the whole way, and I can totally sympathize.

ABC- Very well done, Jeff. I'm just getting over a nasty cold myself, and this parody was the perfect medicine.
