The Lyrics

Flu and pneumonia leave you bedridden
Acne and polio with symptoms hidden
Pox can be cured with penicillin pills
These are now some of my favourite ills

TB and clap, HIV, gonnorrhoea
Plague, typhus, jaundice, thrush and diarrhea
If you have fever and if you have chills
you may have cought one my favourite ills

Cancer and cardiovasc'lar diseases
are bit more serious than mumps or measles
Ebola - that's the germ which really kills
- that is not one of my favourite ills!

When the dog bites -
when snakes give thrills
when wasps are all around
Then just remember my favourite ills
and soon you are feeling sound

If you drink too much, it's liver chirrosis
if you don't brush teeth - you get halitosis
You'll get cholera from drinking the swill
Again those are some of my favourite ills

Mosquitos can spread malaria andt tsetse
Swimming in Niger can lead into Denguey!
Fishes have parasites stuck on their gills
they may transmit you those favourite ills

Children have chickenpox, rash, variola
Leper and herpes can raise up a holler
Treating karies involves - yes - the drills
these are a few of my favourite ills

When the dog bites -
when snakes give thrills
when wasps are all around
Then just remember my favourite ills
and soon you are feeling sound

Great job naming all those diseases and getting them to rhyme. You must have been a pathologist in a former life.

Judging from the title "My Favourite Ills" I thought this was gonna be about threesomes in old Rome and maybe namedropping some folks like Caligula, his sister and the horse he appointed senator, but the whole thing was much sicker than that and deserves no less than at least III plain likeable Vs. :-)

Loved it, Susanna...I did something similar to the same OS along time ago, so I appreciate the hard work you obviously put into this. 555
