Music - Ill As Only A Man Can Be

Ill As Only A Man Can Be

I am sure some of the women that hear this song will say: "That is my husband!"

And a few men saying: "Yeah that is me. And that is my wife laughing at me."

I have been down with the flu for the past days. The other night I could not sleep for coughing so I sat up in bed and started writing these lyrics on my iPad.

Today where I am getting a little better I put music to it. It is a simple song where the lyrics is the important thing. The rest is guitar, bass, a fiddle, a clavinet, and a little drums. My voice is rusty from my cold. Good I recorded the voice early because now I am starting losing it smiley

I hope you have a good laugh.

Lyrics

Ill As Only A Man Can Be
(C) 2011 - Kenneth Lavrsen

I'm weak I cannot lie
I feel miserable and old
I think I'm gonna die
I have an awful cold

My head is full of snot
Pouring out like from a spout
I'm sneezing a lot
And constantly blowing my snout

Oh bring me a pill
Have pity on me
I'm so very ill
As only a man can be

Even though I'm very snotty
My wife just laughs at me
The fever in my body
Is almost one degree

My throat is on fire
My nose is burning and red
My life is about to expire
I'm dying in my bed

Oh bring me a pill
Have pity on me
I'm so very ill
As only a man can be

I'm getting so very sleepy
I've given up on all my hopes
I'm trying to watch a little TV
But all they send are soaps

No appetite for health food
Can't get it past my lips
I only want my coffee
And a bag of potato chips

Oh bring me a pill
Have pity on me
I'm so very ill
As only a man can be

I feel like 97
I have no more will to live
Am I on my way to heaven?
Is this what life could give?

Oh sweetheart won't you help me
My dear I'm begging you
Help me with my misery
With this terrible flu

Oh bring me a pill
Have pity on little me
I'm so very ill
As only a man can be
