The only thing missing was the fun,
I got this tired – like a prize I’d won.
I didn’t rake leaves in the yard,
or stay up all night playing cards,
or paddle a canoe going upstream,
I got this tired absolutely free!
I didn’t drink whiskey or beer,
I got this hangover without the cheers.
I wasn’t exposed to the flu,
But running a fever is what I do.
I didn’t eat one piece of cake,
But I sure got the belly ache.
I got these trophies absolutely free,
They are bonuses this disease has given me.
