The Lyrics

A song about gastrointestinal reflux disorder (GIRD), a disorder I suffer from in real life, the parody is based on a real-life experience.

.*Hallelujah: 1970s rock song by Sweathog or a classic Christian song, take your pick.

*Jeremiah = "Joy To The World" by Three Dog Night, often known as "Jeremiah Was A Bullfrog"

Original song here
Food that was junk, down my throat went
My stomach churned, an upchuck sent
To find myself with some Maalox
Then I ate the whole darn box


'Cause then I felt all hurty, GIRDy, bad
Gut burnin', lava-hot
Hate feelin hurty GIRDy bad
Gut burnin', lava-hot


Hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, burnin' so bad.
Hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, fire inside
Hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, burnin' so hot


Maalox down, in bed I rest
Gastric burnin', patience test
GIRD, through all eternity,
The true scourge of humanity.


'Tis then when the hurty GIRDy gal
Starts feelin' even worse
Then when the hurty GIRDy gal's
Stomach wants to burst


Hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, wantin' Prilosec®
Hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, Rolaids® are relief
Hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, relief, in just a sec


Hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, no longer more I am
Here comes the calmin' stomach gal, she's singing songs of joy,
Feelin' good, Hallelujah*, Jeremiah*, she sang.
Hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, no more
Hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, hurty, GIRDy, relieved

About the relative lack of rhymes: I tried to make the parody as subtle as possible given the subject and the mumbled tone of the OS. :)

Rules are made to be broken. I enjoyed.

It's not fun bein' a gerd-er...I'm one, too

Now that you "brought up" the subject, it sounds like you need more ALK-alinity. Try some chewable calcium carbonate tablets instead of magnesium-aluminum oxide. A very digestible parody! IDNKTOS so I won't vote though.

2Eagle: Thanks.

AFW: It's not. Another thing in common between us. :)

Barry J. Mitchel: I'm on Prilosec for it, and use Rolaids to go with it since Tums make me gag. Great pun on alkalinity and my initials.

I'm guessing that all who've sang the parody stretched the syllables in the stanzas where the OS' syllables are stretched. Just as I intended... :)

I read that .6% of heartburn episodes are symptomatic of ischemic heart disease. So you should keep count of your episodes, and call 911 when you reach 167. Just kidding, of course. 555 for this funny parody!

Not a doctor, but play one on AIR: Thanks! Oddly enough that disorder runs in my family (especially my mother's side, which I take after the most), not many of us lived or will live much longer than 70 years old.
