C.O.P.D. SONG

Hi folks, Erik here. Musician here in No. Calif. diagnosed Stage 3 in 2015 with the life altering crud, and couldn't feel crappier.
Well writing lyrics for a song doesn't much exertion, except for sharpening the pencil,(kiddin'.... sorta. tee-hee!) so I had a stupid idea that popped into my head, of writing this song to the tune of Y.M.C.A. .
I just want people to know, I'm definitely not making fun of anybody that has it, but that they might (I said, "might") be a dumb-ass like me, for smoking your life away, and end up like this.
So anyway, I think you may find it amusing, funny, truthful, and I hate to say it, maybe a d---a-- !, Just like me ! Take care, Erik

"C.O.P.D." (song lyrics) by Erik Darzell © 2021

(to the theme music of "Y.M.C.A". by The Village People)

(12 sec.intro)

(verse 1)

SMOKIN' ! ….........SMOKIN' PACK AFTER PACK,

CHOKIN' ! …..........NOW MY LUNGS HAVE TURNED BLACK,

BREATHIN' ! .........THAT'S JUST A THING IN THE PAST,

I DON'T KNOW HOW LONG I'LL LAST !
--------------------

(verse 2)

COUGHIN' ! .....… COUGHED UP PART OF MY LUNG,

WHEEZIN' ! ......…I'M ALWAYS FEELIN' LIKE DUNG,

MUCOUS ! ….......THAT'S KINDA LOOKIN' LIKE TAR,

I CAN'T EVEN GET IN MY CAR !
--------------------

( hack ! - hack ! - hack ! - hack ! - hack ! ) < rapid cough sounds) (chorus) IT'S HARD TO BREATHE WITH THAT C.-O.-P.-D. , IT'S HARD TO BREATHE WITH THAT C.-O.-P.-D. - EE IT RUINS EVER-Y-THING, THAT YOU'RE WANTING TO DO, THINGS LIKE TAKING A WALK, OR EVEN TRYIN' TO POO ! THAT C.-O.-P.-D. , IT'S HARD TO BREATHE WITH THAT C.-O.- P.-D. - EE ALBUTEROL'S WORKIN' ONLY PART OF THE TIME, AND IF YOU NEED A TRANSPLANT, YOU'RE GONNA WAIT IN A
LINE .

(take a huge breath, and repeat all of it ! ......if still conscious)

=============================================

(p.s. - all the lyrics fit fairly easy, but a couple of words are a
little tricky, and have to tweak a syllable or two.Easy, you'll see!)
