The Lyrics

From the Halls of Eucalyptus
To each name brand remedy
I fight my sore throat ba-attles
Making store trips constantly
All the cough drop ads, I'll re-ead them
Watch TV commercial scenes
Even suck on those big pi-ink pills
That I find in the latrines

Pertussin keeps me cu-ussin'
And Smith Brothers don't soothe much
No help comes thru from Theraflu
Or most other ones I touch
Drinkin' Dayquil, also Ny-yquil
Medicated junk I've seen
I've tried all that stuff there is to try
Even gargle Listerine

I've tried hot tubs, Vick's Vaporubs
And lemon with hot tea
Heard raves and rants for decongestants
But, they don't work for me
Taken alternative medicines
Natural products, till I'm green
Put these words in quotes, for so-ore throats
Father Time's the best I've seen..

Five wet hacks for this humorous take on the URI... especially loved the *big pink pill in the latrine* line!

Funny and good like always, AFW. And like everyone else said, the pink pill line was LOL worthy.
