Time Warp

Not for the first time, a song idea has popped into my head that should have popped into my head twenty-eight years ago. If that's not eine lange Leitung, what is? Still, I ask my faithful readers to cast their minds back to 1978 and the Gershwin song (then just turning 50), I've Got a Crush on You:

I've got the Russian flu;
Fever's high;
Feelin' awful achy;
Like to die.

My nose and throat
Are substandard;
My small intestine
Is gerrymandered.

I've got dibs
On the loo!
(Pass the Kaopectate®,

My gut has turned to pure mush,
Just because a Russian gave me the flu.
