Some days I wake up smiling
Today's sure not one of those days
Caught some kind of a flu bug
Wanna sleep the whole day away
Feel like a ruddy zombie
Got no drive, no get up and go
No longer a reason for living
I've come to the end of the show
Hide the pills and the liquor
Get rid of the knives and weapons
Feel like harming little animals
Looking for bugs to step on
Normally charming and lovable
But when bugs invade my body
Don't handle the invasion very well
This nasty man gets really snotty
Eventually I'll get back to normal
To my sweet and lovable self
Until then, please bear with me
Don't feel like a big happy elf!
