The Lyrics

I couldn't believe there is actually a "Homoeopathy Awareness Week" on at the moment (blog post here).. but that wouldn't quite scan.

Personally, I think awareness of what homoeopathy actually *is* would be a damn good idea.
Oh, the bad stuff is the good stuff
And the good stuff is the bad stuff
And if that sounds like it's mad stuff
It's a homoeopathic rule

But now it's Homoeopathy Week
Homoeopathy Week
Dilute your bad stuff 'til it's
Infinite-ly weak
And then you realize
That water can memorize
Just the bits we want and not your stool


Oh real med isn't alt-med
And alt-med isn't real med
At times it's a surreal med
It's quackery and just a lie

But during Homoeopathy Week
Homoeopathy Week
Al-ternative medication
Is surreally chic
Ingest a sugar pill
If you're not really ill
You can call it "bogus", if you like


Oh, solutions get dilutions
The dilutions of solutions
Cause total diminutions
Until there's really nothing left

But during Homoeopathy Week
Homoeopathy Week
It's international do your
Research properly week
The best research we find
Is when it's double-blind
And takes more than a week, so you can bet
They still have not done decent research yet
