The Influenza Chorus

27 Feb

Handel would be so appalled scornful proud. But come on, sing with me.

I’ll take the alto line.

Influenza! Influenza! Influenza!
Influenza! Influenza!

For hacking coughs and fev’rish aches reigneth.
Influenza! Influenza! Influenza! Influenza!

Tamiflu not potent with this straineth.
Influenza! Influenza! Influenza! Influenza!
Influenza! Influenza!

The snot-filled tissues now
Have become the decor of our home,
And of its floor, and of its couch;
And kids shall cough for ever and ever,
For ever and ever, forever and ever,

Cough of coughs, and hack of hacks,
Cough of coughs, and hack of hacks,
And hack of hacks,
And fevers reign,
And bodies ache forever and ever,
Cough of coughs, forever and ever,
And hack of hacks,
Influenza! Influenza
!

Regular posting to resume next week. Unless we die from the flu or I am struck by lightning for turning one of the most sacred musical works into an ode to snot.
