I Can't Help Catching a Deadly Flu
Lyrics by Luis Vazquez, copyright 2006
Sung to the tune of "I can't help falling in love with you" by George Weiss - Hugo Peretti - Luigi Creatore

Economists say, surgical masks will do
So I can't help catching a deadly flu
Public Health
Where the hell are you!
Help us prevent catching the deadly flu

Like a nasal flow, droplets in the air
H5N1 goes, airborne everywhere
Shake my hand, touch your eyes and nose too
And you can't help passing the deadly flu

Cover up your nose, wrap with panty hose
Don't you wonder why?
N95s in short supply?
Shake my hand, touch your eyes and nose too
And we can't help catching a deadly flu
And we can't help catching a deadly flu
This song includes "inside jokes" for Public Health geeks.

Although I couldn't get the video to load, I tried singing it to the original, the pacing was great--and normally flus aren't an easy subject to make funny, very well done. . .555

Who knew deadly cases of the flu could be so funny? I thought they were supposed to be fear-inspiring...hmmm. Well, anyway, good job! It's hilarious!
