The Lyrics

The theme song.....for THE FLU!!!

Well, party tapped all night it was a wild ride,
sucked the spigot on the keg swaps spit from twenty-five,
germ hives, we kept those germs alive
in hosts twenty-five.

Those friendly sneezing throes just arced and parked
germs steady on mark just spitting on like Sars on our face,
Creepy germy embrace.

My blurry vision span is growing, praying we're hungover and sleep is best.
Bad plan, germs feast in me and they got... complex.
My health is possesed.

That's a germ grad.

All the germs grew (Ahhh Choo!),
gave me the flu ('flu en za)
booger bits flew (Threw up, chum on!),
don't catch my flu....

Fever now grew (head stuffed can't hear you),
toilet's well used (all fluids came thru),
don't show me food (and now more germs just grew - time to spew.),
hurling bad news....

Voice sounds like sheeps' bleat, throat I'm stressing want to scream
but I just bark like a mule - nose drips real green scene
germs not rid of, digest - food comes up.

Feel like dying back at home got my needle from Doc Stone,
my fever came right off head spin revolutions stopped,
eyes still sag - my ass still drags.
Now I spent a week reclined started feeling fine,like Lazarus got out of bed.
Flu shots complete next years rounds,
or it's marry my bed,

I'm not flu bad.

All those germs knew (They're screwed!),
can't get the flu(Shot killed ya).
Shots for flu rules(Health's up!),
GERMS now abused.....

Healthy bod rules (I want to feel good.),
shots for the flu (Immunize you.).
Avoid germ pools (They want to update to flu.),
can't grow in you....

All your nose goo (not from flu!),
pollen makes too (trees drop it too - green spew)
allergies soon (They make you sick too),
cause you some blues....

Not bad as flu (don't be scared - won't cause passed gasses!),
control that too (Take meds soon)
avoid swine too(A new flu in the trough!),
Pigs' breath kills you(Met your piggy end?)

Also bird flu (Brain swells brings you down, head feel pounded!),
What spread this flu?
Mosquito crews (Avoid them have fear, sting and flu's on - swat them!),
carries this flu. (Down you go!).

All these bad flu's (germs taunted to take me for years!),
are all bad news (There nose blows!),
call out work soon(Guess how I feel?).
Bedtime real soon(Sick!).....

Need to give a little more clearance, Clarence: The swine-flu scare of last winter was horribly overblown by the sensationalist-seeking media, as bravely parodied at the time by someone who turned out to be right (surprise!) :

You've already v/c'd that one -- in fact, it was inspired by one of your songs . Just in case anyone else is letting media fear-mongering get to them this winter.

OK, got that out of the way. Great writing as always, and you have a nice touch for evocative imagery. Fave: "Lazarus out of bed". Fives Flu Over The Flu-grew's Nest.

(ABC) This was nothing to sneeze at! Well done subbing all of Ian Hunter's little ad libs.

(ABC) I gotta say, I'm not feeling this one. It felt kind of...awkward, I dunno haow to say it. Maybe it's because I've never had the flu, only about six billion colds, who knews. I just couldn't behind this one, sorry.

First listen flies by so fast I missed most of the jokes, but second read showed me a ton of wordplay and jokes in this. I especially liked all of your subs for 'All The Young Dudes'. Nice work Mark.

(ABC) A lot of clever wordyness in this one. Not super LOL funny, but still really good!
Mark Scotti - March 15, 2012 - Report this comment
Thanks, bobpie. The Flu is not everyone's cup of tea(which is good for the flu, by the way..LOL). Thanks, Glen and D-Mon, for recognizing the wordplay(It's a very challenging song...)
Matthias - March 15, 2012 - Report this comment
I agree with Glen about this being not LOL funny but I blame the topic a lot more than anything. There's not really that many jokes you can squeeze out of the common cold because it sucks having it but it's not fun or funny to have.
Mark Scotti - March 16, 2012 - Report this comment
i agree, Matthias. I just wrote this for the wordplay challange. On that aspect, I think i did well...
