about

Written in October 2002 on the way to a gig at the Neutral Ground, New Orleans. Recorded by Jim Wood in 2008.

lyrics

I went to the forest
Walked thru the cypress
Tried to have a picnic but mosquitos tried to bite us
Now I got a fever and a throbbing sinus
Bit by a skeeter with the West Nile Virus

Went home to my walk-up
Put my feet up
Too tired to get up and pee or throw up
Writin' my will and countin' my days up
Praying at my funeral some friends will show up

Ah - eeee
Bite me

Those damn mosquitos
Are trying to screw us
Excedrin, Penecillin and aspirin are useless
Gonna end up cold in a state of detritus
Sicker than a dog with the West Nile Virus

Ah - eeee
Bite me

Don't go to the forest
Don't walk thru the cypress
Don't try to have a picnic where the skeeters tried to bite us
You'll end up cold in a state of detritus
Bit by a skeeter with the West Nile Virus

Ah - eeee
Bite me
