My eyes are all red, and
my nose is all runny.
The words that I say
sound a little bit funny.

My ears are plugged up, and
my throat’s kinda scratchy.
The skin on my cheeks looks
all reddish and patchy.

My forehead is hot,
but I feel kinda cold.
I am really a pitiful
sight to behold.

No big deal, you are thinking,
it’s only the flu.
Just a few days in bed,
and you’ll be good as new.

Lotsa times I’d agree
but this time there’s no way.
This is not my idea of
a happy birthday!
