Bring me my breakfast in bed
I've got frogs in my throat
I've got aches in my head
I've got tumors propagating like rabbits
in warrens burrowed in my brain

But they aren't nearly as cute
as they pretend to be
The little ones chew
and the bigger one's scream
at each other all night
when I'm trying to sleep
so I don't catch a wink
I've got trouble with humors
and rats at my spine
I've got bats in my belfry
and crusts on my eyes
If I dropped death this minute
I wouldn't be surprised
and you'd see things my way

You caught me at a bad time
but if you pay some attention
I think I'll survive
I'll need several expensive operations
to get me through the night
All right, you caught me
no really I'm fine
I can handle the cramps
it's not your cross it's mine
I can manage
so go back to your party
I'll be all right.

Though I've got nails in my shoes
and pins under my nails
my teeth chatter too
I'm incredibly pale
I guess I'll trundle on
until my kidneys fail
I can't have much time
It's easy to see
that I'm grinding my gears
I've got smoke in my lungs
I've got bells in my ears
and I can't help but wonder
"Will you miss me, my dear?
Will you see things my way?"
