I Don’t Feel So Good

I think I have the worst kind of flu,
My right eye is even blue,
My right hand is now goo,
I have 22 teeth that are new,
Ooh, look at that, I have horns growing out of me too.

My hair is coming out,
I’m gonna die without a doubt,
The doctor even said I have gout,
And what is that you wonder, it’s a disease of course.

My whole body is starting to disintegrate,
I feel like I’ve been smashed by a gate,
I’m not going to be able to go with my friends to skate,
And now I’m going to be late to meet up with Nate.

My dad does not like this one bit,
We don’t even have a first aid kit,
The fire is lit but it does not help one bit,
And guess what I feel like? …
I’ve fallen into a bottomless pit.

I can not control what my left arm does,
My arm pits are growing fuzz.

Whelp, I gotta go play with my friends just cause.

My oh my that was never a lie,
But hey go with the flow,
It might have been an exaggeration though.
