From the recording Ants in My Pants
With a cough… and a sneeze… and a hack… and a wheeze…
My breath smells like mouldy cheese, my legs are numb up to my knees,
I feel my fingers start to freeze, I just wanna catch some zees,
I think I’m starting to turn blue, better stay away from you
Because these germs are flying through the air like ah… ah… CHOO!!!!
Achoo! Achoo! Aaaachoo!!
Woke up this morning with a tickle in my throat,
I guess I should have listened when my dad said, “Wear a coat!”
My forehead is on fire, my toes are made of ice,
I’m shivering so hard, already dropped my stuffy - twice!!!
I’m feeling so stuffed up my words aren’t coming out quite right,
My nose started running in the middle of the night,
My tongue feels like a cotton ball, my eyes are swollen shut,
I think there’s a volcano I feel rumbling in my gut…
