Ethel Merman

Ethel Merman's, "Everything's Coming Up Roses"
Better Lyrics:
You're not well, pain is great
This disease has a high infection rate
Bleeding tears, fever- Wow!
Horror: nasty thing's deadly Ebola!!!
Original Lyrics:
You'll be swell, you'll be great
Gonna have the whole world on a plate
Starting here, starting now
Honey, everything's coming up roses
