The Lyrics

Hello, it's been a while. To write a parody about a disease, I decided to use an original song about a disease, albeit a figurative one. While Johnny Rivers's version was very successful, the original was written and recorded by Huey "Piano" Smith in 1957.
I wanna cough but I'm afraid I'll choke
I got laid off, looks like I'm going broke
Strange new virus got a hold of me too
I got the Covid pneumonia and the Wuhan China flu

Gotta stay away from that big crowd
I wanna kiss her but it's not allowed
Bat soup virus got a hold of me too
I got the Covid pneumonia and the Wuhan China flu

Well all the rest'rants in my town are closed
Please keep your distance if I blow my nose
Wuhan virus got a hold of me too
I got the Covid pneumonia and the Wuhan China flu

[piano solo]

I wanna sneeze, but I'd be put to task
I should be wearing a protective mask
Chinese virus got a hold of me too
I got the Covid pneumonia and the Wuhan China flu

Cannot hang around, go back to my lair
Pick up some toilet paper on my way there
Commie virus got a hold of me too
I got the Covid pneumonia and the Wuhan China flu

[end with a guitar solo]
