The Lyrics

Swine flu: it's a pandemic. Who hasn't heard of it? Even AmIRighter Jeff Reuben caught it a while back! Here's a parody about it, this one's also for Decathlon. I wish the OS was a little longer so I could milk the title switch a little more!
I keep a face mask on this mouth of mine
I keep my hands washed, clean and sanitized
Cause if I get this sickness I could die
Death rates are high, flu caught from swine

We've found it scary, very easy to catch flu
I keep myself on track thanks to the news
Yes I am glad, that my home is my school
Don't wanna die, catch flu from swine

I get a shot whose medicines will fight
Those crazy viruses that spread like light
And sickliness is fatal, doctor's right
The kids have died, caught flu from swine

We've got away from piggies far and wide
They will be killed, be slaughtered of their hide
This flu's an epidemic CNN headline
The old have died, caught flu from swine

Each place I go, I see mask-wearing guys
They keep their mouths quite covered all the time
So this shall end my tale, this creepy fright
Because you're wise, we'll blame the swine!

I have to let the cat out of the bag: This parody is no pig in a poke. Good work!

I second to what OMR said! Swine flu is very contagious.....and so is laughter! I also have to touch base with Jeff Reuben soon by commenting on his parodies. It got me thinking that I got to steer clear from swine/pork as well. LOL!! This tells all with H1N1! Great take on current events. Vaccinating 555 flu shots for this one and good luck with Decath!!

Wow, thanks everyone!
OMR: LOL! Thanks man!
Blackjack: LOL again! Thanks again! You're starting to become one of my regulars.
Christie: Thanks yet again! I actually haven't taken any warning (well, except hand-washing), so I'm still eating pork foods.
SP: You've said that about all of my recent parodies. Can't pick a fave, I see! JK, thanks, buddy.
John: Yes I do, especially hard-earned ones from masters like you! Thanks!
Mark: Thanks, that's just what we need around here!

Great choice for the OS for this, having lived through it, I got a kick out of your song. 5s.

I have been turned away from swine-flu shot clinics numerous times in the past couple of months, but I haven't turned away from your parodies, or AmIRight for that matter, since I regained Internet service. I hope I don't get the swine flu, and I hope no one else here does, but I hope you get more 5s.

You're pigging out on the fives here!

I like the way you put your own personal touch on this one with saying that you're happy that your school is your home. It makes us learn more about you though the work of parody which is pretty clever.

(Dec 3) Swine flu doesn't seem to have hit Adelaide at all, and I hope it stays that way. Cool parody, 555!

Excellent job here, DJ...loved it! Are you really home schooled? Just curious...

Agreeance with Silver Power on this being one of your best written parodies to date.

(ABC E & F) Voted once before, and the parody is as good as before despite swine flu being old news.

Ok Blaze. I don't know, its not bad. Not terribly funny, the original song doesn't give you much to work with, and its not a song a care for. . .Also catching flu from swine is a stretch because it's actually called Swine Flu. I still liked that you could take a current topic and put it to a song though. For the record, Swine Flu is not over, it--like malaria--is still around, we are entering the summer which is not typically a flu season, but the Swine Flu is not necessarily over and as such the parody still has some relevance.

(Artistry) Still squealing about this one...

My above comment definitely still stands, reading it again the initial reaction is still identical to how I feel about it now.

Some nice wordplay here. A nice twist would be to have your character get vaccinated and then catch the flu from the vaccine.
