THE ALLERGY BLUES

True story.
  1. I wake up in the morning, hoping for relief. But all I get is foggy-headed, sniffling, sneezing grief.
  2. I got the blues. The allergy blues, oh yes. I got the blues. I got the red-eyed, snuffling, can't get moving, screw you pollen allergy blues.
  3. I head out to the doctor. He orders up some tests. They take your blood and scratch your arm, and say, "Go home and rest."
  4. I got the blues. The allergy blues, oh yes. I got the blues. I got the red-eyed, snuffling, can't get moving, screw you pollen allergy blues.
  5. The doctor rings my number. I croak out, "howdy-do." He says, "There's nothing in the tests that you're allergic to."
  6. I got the blues. The allergy blues, oh yes. I got the blues. I got the red-eyed, snuffling, can't get moving, screw you pollen allergy blues.
  7. I say, "Come on now, doctor, that can't possibly be true. There's something wrong, believe me, can you just give me a clue?"
  8. The doctor sort of falters. He answers slow and cold. "The findings are that simply you're irritated by the world."
  9. I got the blues. The allergy blues, oh yes. I got the blues. I got the red-eyed, snuffling, can't get moving, screw you pollen allergy blues.
