The Lyrics

Last line: “doxy’cline,” contraction of doxycycline, used to prevent malaria, to treat anthrax, or to treat infections caused by mites, ticks, or lice; pronounced with long “i.”
Suckin’ time,
and the shivvin’ is easy.
Ticks are stuck in
and they’re carrying Lyme.

Oh, your gam gets bit,
and the monster’s bloodchuggin’.
Flow, gush, trickle A-seep;
O-slough rime.

Bloody outpourings:
they’re gonna dive in, swigging,
wretched, dreaded things,
smaller, they, than a dime.

Chug-glug that gore thing.
Deet’s not enough to arm you.
Then you scream like a Banshee—you’re no mime.

Suckin’ time,
and you sicken, feel queasy.
Ticks were huggin’
in this too-tall-grass clime.

Oh, your gam got bit. . .
nasty monsters blooksuckin’.
So rush, ’scrip fill, make speed. . .
