The Lyrics

Two pacing quirks to apologise for: firstly having to say "temperature" as if it had two syllables, and then for the "paracetamol" joke.. but I couldn't resist either, I'm afraid :-)
Somewhat under the weather
Temp'r'ture's high
There's a damn nasty virus
Got me, I think I'll die

Somewhat under the weather
With the 'flu
Why can't adverts for Lemsip
And all that stuff come true

Felt OK when I went to bed
But woke up with an aching head - paracetamol
Works 'bout as well as lemon drops
Oh how I hope that this pain stops
Before I've et 'em all

Subwad udder de wedder
Dose is blogged
Ode dig afder anudder
Siduses awful clogged

I'b goig to go back to bed
Do dry add clear by achigg head, it's hurtigg
Bud a feeding iddside has growd
I dode wad do suffer alode
Id's disconcertigg.

Somewhat under the weather
Feeling blue
So I thought I'd endeavour
To get to work with you

If influenza's so infectious
Now I'm hoping... will get it too

Loved stanzas 4 and 5 which read perfectly, given your condition, and I had no problems pacing paracetamol - 555

There's been a lot of this going around where I am! Funnily enough, I was at my worst when Radio 2 ran the first of a three-part documentary on Judy Garland. Hope you're feeling better!

Anybody who doesn't give this fives is sick. Phil, you might want to head "Up to Sniffle Creek." (Yes, a shameless plug.)
