He wiped off his brows,
And milked his four cows
And that's how he got the Flu

Mistaking the club for a zoo
He wiped off his brows,
And milked his four cows
And that's how he got the Flu

There once was a man from Peru
Mistaking the club for a zoo
He wiped off his brows,
And milked his four cows
And that's how he got the Flu

There once was a watcher named Giles
Who thought he was part of X-Files
With a swing and a miss
He said "Hey watch this!"
And now you can see it for miles
