My Pneumonia

A great song. And a terrible cold.

My Pneumonia - apologies to The Knack

Oh you're such a nasty one, nasty one.
When you gonna let me feel fine, pneumonia?
Ooh, you make my nostrils run, my nostrils run
Runs, it's comin' out like wine, pneumonia
Never gonna stop, full of snot
Blow my nose a lot. Never let it up when I touch
or rub my eyes, fraught. My my my ah-ah-choo. M-M-M-My pneumonia.

Don't come any closer, huh, ah dontcha, huh
I will cough all over you, pneumonia.
Sneezing is a mystery, makes me weep
Running down the length of my cheeks, pneumonia
Never gonna stop, I'm all hot
And I cough a lot. Never let it up when I touch
or rub my eyes, shot. My my my ah-ah-choo. M-M-M-My pneumonia.

Why'd you have to give it to me, give it to me.
Is it just some mucus and slime, pneumonia?
Are my eyes watery, watery
Or is it just a game in my mind, pneumonia

Never gonna stop, I'm all hot
And I cough a lot. Never let it up when I touch
or rub my eyes, shot. My my my ah-ah-choo. M-M-M-My pneumonia.

And here's the original...

Nice!!! I would now like to see... My Dimensia... though I think it would be tough to remember each verse!

Shit! It's pneumonia? That is nothing to fool around with. When you get sick, don't just ride the wave for a while. Go to the doctor. You really need to stay in bed and let this stuff pass. It's very serious. Now I'm really worried. Don't worry so much about infecting someone else. Bacterial pneumonia doesn't really spread so easily. I'm really sorry John. Push fluids too.

Not sure I'd know where to start.

I don't know if it's pneumonia bit it's bad. Good thing I have someone here that sounds just like you to look after me. I think I put the moan in pneumonia!

Haha! Love your twisted tunes. Sorry you're still under the weather. Stay in bed and get well.

nonamedufus said…
Well it's easy to do the first. Believe me, I'm working on the second. Thanks, 00dozo.

Dufus! This is serious! Me no likey. Please take good care of yourself and do like everyone else already said... rest, fluids, and cheesecake.

Well... I think I'm adding the cheesecake. It always makes me feel better, so hopefully it will you too!

I haven't tried cheesecake. Can you send me some?

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
