Here's hoping I don't come down with flu
I hope no offence at the following line
For the flu I don't want happens to be swine
There's so much about it, It's everywhere
In the papers huh! like they care
It's all bout statistics and I hope I'm not one
I think I'll stay in till the virus has gone
A dose of the plague I'll do without please
Ill be off to the doctor's if I as much as sneeze
Talk about stories and this one is big
Catching epidemics from a pig?
And then last year, flu from a bird
All these diseases I've never heard
We'll be worried about insects -- do they get sick?
We'll be catching pneumonia from a tick
And if my cat sneezes, she'll have to go
I'm not having cat flu as well you know!
It's all rather worrying and I shouldn't make light
If you have scleroderma it would be more than a fight
But what can you do except hope for the best
Stay indoors in your snug little nest
And if I contract the dreaded flu
I hope I won't oink like little pigs do!
