I wanna jump but I'm afraid I'll fall
I wanna holler but the joints too small
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too
I got the rocking pneumonia
And the boogie woogie flu

Call some other's baby that ain't all
I wanna kiss her but she's way too tall
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too
I got the rocking pneumonia
And the boogie woogie flu

*I wanna squeeze her but I'm way too low
I would be runnin' but my feets too slow
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too
I got the rocking pneumonia
And the boogie woogie flu

(Repeat *)

Baby comin' now I'm hurryin' home
I know she's leaving 'cuz I'm taking too long
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too
I got the rocking pneumonia
And the boogie woogie flu

    I had never been diagnosed with pneumonia before.

    Today is the day report cards are handed out and i won't be able to see them.
