The Lyrics

Here is musical advice about protecting yourself when you're well and others when you're sick. I hope that none of you will be singing this song in regret. I had to reach back 84 years for this OS, revived by Dean Martin and others.
I've got flu, why not you?
Cold fat nose is wheezing, too!
Is anybody less vi-TAL?

Earned my woes, spurned, disposed
Wrapperless syrin-ged dose.*
Can't anybody be my pal?

Well, if you're shunning flu, then strive please to
Cover your derms.#
Coughing flings awful things;
Retching's rife with fizzing germs.

But would we love good health too?
Should eschew the loose "Aah---choo!"
'Cause ain't nobody im-mor-TAL.
* An OS-fitting way to say, "I skipped immunization." # (epi)dermis or skin, esp. face, ears and hands. Q: Should the First Lady follow the President's advice to sneeze on her bare arm? A: I wash my hands of this one.

Oops: Emphasis should be "VI-tal" in line 3 and "my PAL" in line 6. Also change "the" to "each" in line 12.

Thanks all for your Cs & Vs. It was fun to do a nonpolitical song for a "change", but I had to spoof D.C. seriousness in the footnote. I'm glad nobody was revulsed by lines 9 & 10.
