It's Gonna Get You
Flesh eating bacteria, Mad Cow Disease
Ebola Virus? Now don’t you dare sneeze!
Cancer from cell phones and high power lines
Water can kill you if mixed with strychnine
The news is abuzz when a few people die
From an obscure disease that most can’t surmise
There’s death all around us, so many things kill
Don’t drink that soda! Don’t take this pill!
The truth is that we have less now to fear
Than generations past for thousands of years
No famine, no war, our country is strong
But you never would know by listening too long
The news and talk shows broadcast on TV
The latest horrifically deadly disease
The studies that prove now that broccoli is bad
And coffee! So many new studies we’ve had
Second hand smoke is suggested as worse
Than the smoke that the other guy inhaled first!
Does all this make sense? Are the odds very high
That we will all meet an untimely demise?
If considered with wisdom, the ratings removed
It becomes clear to see who’s playing the stooge
The clowns in the media have master’s degrees
In hype and hoopla and selling the tease
The ones with the knowledge are shaking their heads
It’s hard to believe that the masses are led
To worry and fret about not what they see
But what they have heard another perceive
There’s no cheating death so ignore all the fuss
You could choke on dinner or get hit by a bus
It just seems so crazy, these people in strife
Intead of dwelling on doom, just get a life!
