PARODY COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, January 2014.


KEYWORDS: classicsong, medical


REFLUX ROMP

(to the tune of "Java Jive")

Cope with Sanka, it's decaf
It cuts regurgitation down by half
If you can't purge that Java-jive urge
Reflux, reflux, reflux, reflux, reflux.

Craving chilies cheery hot ?
Doc's got them jotted in the "ought not" slot!
Lesson you'll note in the back of your throat
Reflux, reflux, reflux, reflux, reflux.

I love wine while dining fine
Wait! a late dinner-date at eight or nine!
When I recline and that wine is supine
Reflux, reflux, reflux, reflux, reflux.

So hoist up the head of the stead of that bed
We'll slide out she said, bet we'll sled 'til we're dead
A dose of Zantac whacks the acid.   Flaccid!
Function, function, G-E junction.

Cope with Sanka, it's decaf
It cuts regurgitation down by half
If you can't purge that Java-jive urge
Reflux, reflux, reflux, reflux, reflux.

Coffee urn!   Gas burn!
Acid burn!  Can't learn
You know I've no control, sell my soul
To spurn prohibitions to caffeine. 

Yer tongue may be furred from refractory GERD
Your breath, in a word can deter a whole herd
Confer with surgeon - a well-trained one, famed one!
Sphincter sloppy, lap'roscopy!

Cope with Sanka, it's decaf
It cuts regurgitation down by half
If you can't purge that Java-jive urge
Reflux, reflux, reflux, reflux, reflux !
