The Lyrics

I woke up one morning feeling a very strange sore throat; my uvula (the thingie that hangs down in the back of the mouth) was huge! This had never happened before, and of course I panicked and called my Doctor at 5am. But he drowsily assured me it was nothing to be alarmed about (with some gargling with salt water it was fine the next day), so I relaxed...and wrote the following...
I've got a uvula more than twice it's normal size
If they had uvula contests, mine would win a prize
'cause when I saw it hanging around (I opened wide)
You know I got creeped out, gave out a cry
Thought I would die

I've got a uvula hanging halfway down my throat
And when I speak I gurgle, and say nothing of note
If you should have a sore throat and breathe in air that's dry
Well then, your uvula might swell and make you gag
Calm down, it's not so bad
Doc says it happens all the time

Choking me at night
Freaking out my wife
That thing is tickling my spine.

I think my uvula, it belongs to ole' King Kong
If I must have a Kong body part, don't want that one
If you use uvulas to usurp or uulate
Bid on my uvula, on eBay I will auction it
Woh woh woh woh
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Uvula is now my word of the week! Funny, funny stuff, Mason...although I feel a bit guilty laughing at your affliction. 555

When you view a MasonR parody, you view la creme de la creme.

What an excellent idea, Mason. Here's another Tom Jones concept for you:

I got a fright, just last night, when I looked 'tween my tonsils
I saw a gigantic thing at the back of my mouth
I tried to swallow...
But I found that I couldn't, my screams echo'd all round the houth

My my my... uvula
Inches wide... uvula
I could see just what it was stopping breathe
So I called the doc just in case I would need surgery

Kristoff-many thanks, and don't worry. If I could laugh at it (after being freaked out for a couple of hours) I give you permission to laugh along. Stephen, QC, Alvin--thanks! John--saw that one, thought it was really funny! Larry-thanks! Johnny D--Shucks! Phil--I got Delilah, but what's the first one? (my Tom Jones catalog is, mercifully, limited)
Phil Alexander - February 15, 2006 - Report this comment
The first one? That's the verse to Delilah: "I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window/I saw the flickering shadows of love on the blind/She was my woman/But as she betrayed me I watched and went out of my mind"
