The flu shot

We're off to get our flu shot, in the magical land of Oz
We hear it's a whiz of a wiz, if ever a wiz there was
If ever, oh ever a wiz there is, in the magical land of Oz it is because
Because, because, because, because, because
Because of the wonderful things it does
We're off to get our flu shot, in the magical land of Oz
We are, we are, we are, we are
And there's nothin you can do, so there

Oh me, oh my, and now we're sick
Our arm is sore, our stomach churns, the nausea overwhelms
Our body aches, the earth it quakes, our head's convoluted in pain
Our nose it runs, our throat is sore, the tongue is contorted with cramps
But me, oh my, it was a whiz, a whiz it was, in the magical land of Oz
Because of the wonderful things it does
Because, because, because, because, because
And there's nothin we can do, so there

We called our doc, he said “Take stock, you've only one day to survive”
And then he laughed and laughed and laughed that miserable sob
Because of the wonderful things it does he laughed and laughed and laughed
Our body aches, the earth it quakes, our head's convoluted in pain
Because, because, because, because, because
Because of the wonderful things it does
It was a whiz, a whiz it was, in the magical land of Oz
And there's nothin he can do, so there

The river flowed along it's green banks, the cows they munched their cud
They had us in a coffin nailed, because of the wonderful things it does, it does
We sat up straight and bumped our head, they heard the clamber inside
The eulogies halted, the lid it was vaulted
The doc, he laughed and laughed and laughed, because, because, because
Of the wonderful things it does, it does, in the magical land of Oz
Our aches are gone, the earth is still, (so is this damnable funeral parlour)
And there's nothin the gods can do, so there

Because of the wonderful things it does, it does
In the magical land of Oz
