Leprosy lyrics!

Rob Karl responded to my post lamenting the loss of Leprosy lyrics with lyrics at least accurate enough to fool me. So, here are the lyrics he provided (unchanged with the exception of the word “love” which I think he unintentionally omitted).

Sung to the tune of Yesterday by The Beatles:

Leprosy,
What a sorry mess I am to see.
Even friends can’t stand to look at me.
Oh, I despise
My leprosy.

Gradually,
I’m not half the man I used to be.
Pieces keep on falling off of me.
It happens now
So gradually.

When my tongue fell off,
I don’t know, I couldn’t say.
I said, [garbled] “zump ping wong”.
Now I long for that sweet day
When I had no

Leprosy.
Making love with me could never be.
Yes, I’ve lost my chance for ecstasy.
Oh I despise
My leprosy.

Thanks, Rob!

Now I need to find a recording.
