Summer Cold…*

Summer vacation, it was a blast
Summer cold, it happened so fast
Lack of sleep, not my own bed
Stuffiness, all through my head,

Summer days, sneezing away
But, oh, those drugged Nyquil nights!

Well-a well-a well-a huh
Tell me more, tell me more
Do you cough all the time?
Tell me more, tell me more
Is your nose filled with slime?

Tried to rest, but that didn’t work
Phone calls from telemarketer jerks
My poor throat is feeling so sore
Need more meds from the grocery store

Summer germs, now something’s inflamed
But, oh, those sleepy Nyquil nights!

Well-a well-a well-a huh
Tell me more, tell me more
Do you still feel like crap?
Tell me more, tell me more
Do you still need a nap?

A couple more days and I’ll be all right
I might wash my hair, not look such a fright
Think I might actually be on the mend
And this stupid cold will finally come to an end

Summer days, sneezing away
But, oh, those blissful Nyquil nights!!

*To the tune of SummerΒ NightsΒ from Grease. Β I probably would have done an audio recording for you, you know, if it weren’t for my cold…

  21. Aww, sorry you’re sick.
    I remember one year we took the kids to universal studios. It was winter in NY so it was nice to escape the cold for a bit. I kept harping on the kids to not get sick and I know the got tired of hearing me repeat all the precautions and bundle them profusely. Well can you believe they were all fine and I was the one who got sick? Oh the irony!!! They all laughed and laughed. But we had fun. Here’s to colds meds. 🍻 Get well soon 🌷

  22. OMG that is hilarious!! When I first started reading it I didn’t realize it was to Summer Nights but something about it seemed familiar. When I realized it was a take on that song, I sang the rest of it to the tune! Even with the N>I.G>H>T> accentuated the way they do it in the song!! Oh boy I’m glad to hear you are feeling better…and if you are completely well I would love to hear you sing this!! πŸ˜‰
