Rod Stewart could pull it off:

You're in my heart, you're in my lungs,
You steal my breath my health's undone
You killed my dog, who's my best friend.
You took my life...

The plague lost its glamour,
the cough makes me stammer,
But you're every MD's dream.
You're deep in, pneumonic, but baby I've decided
you're the best phlegm I've ever seen.

♫ My dog just died, it was the plague
The doctors, they were pretty vague
But then they said it was pneumonic
So now I'm drinkin' gin and tonic... ♫

I wish Warren Zevon were still around. He worked "brucellosis" into a song. He could do pneumonic plague or Yersinia pestis.

Kind of rhymes with "moronic" which is apropos for country music.

Supersonic, can't smoke the chronic cause I got pneumonic.

Pay me.

We'll played sir!

Jimi Hendrix did it from the point of view of the dog...

Pneumonic plague was in my lung,
Vectors out upon my tongue.
Actin' funny but I don't know why
'scuse me while I lick my guy.
 
2014-07-12 11:31:11 AM  
If you'll try to refrain
I have this to explain
My dogs lifeline is the wind and the rain
Baby can you dig your dog
He's a righteous dog
Baby can you dig your dog
I'll see his like again
Baby can you dig your dog?

I knew I was chronic

Doc said I had pneumonic

But he was into Technotronic

While on his Panasonic

ZAZ & bearded clamorer, FangQ both for dog-gerel (cringe!) at drop of hat, plague or summat.  Saw pic yesterday of another late dog's grave but so not  gonna fetch it here.

Damn it. Another reason to miss Warren. I was just listening to "Muhammed's Radio" in the car. Really Loud, and thinking about him.

I have a device that I usually use to help me work words like "pneumonic" into song lyrics, but for the life of me I can't remember its name.
 
2014-07-12 11:33:41 AM  
Also Datanerd, Giltric & FloridaFark Tag. Maya typed too soon ...

Pneumatic, Baby!

I'm jess an old country boy
You know my dog is dead
My plague is pneumonic
It's in my lungs and head.
But the worst of it all
Is my music's atonic
And it don't rhyme much neither.
 
2014-07-12 11:46:08 AM  
I'm so pnemonic,
I can't play my harmonic-a!
 
2014-07-12 11:47:02 AM  
The bright side is, if you play the record backwards, you get back your dog AND discover a cure for pneumonic plague.

Anyone reading the comments in that article? It's Obama's fault for letting in them illegals/not letting rodents get killed.

"The reaction is leaning toward people who are tired of the protection of prairie dogs on some level."

Is this a sentence? Somewhere, Sarah Palin is winking.

Adam Sandler, is that you?
 
2014-07-12 11:53:44 AM  
Well, it does rhyme with "high colonic" so that shouldn't be too hard.
 
2014-07-12 11:54:24 AM  
What kind of plague is pneumonic
So obscure to require a mnemonic
Bubonic is not my pal
Thriving in lymph intersti-e-al
Septicemic makes me pout
In blood vessels which runs throughout
Pneumonic rolls right off my tongue
Festering in my abnormal lung
Pharyngeal makes me hoarse
While in my throat of course
Meningeal I cannot maintain
As it ventures to my brain
All from grace on up above
Though none as infectious as your love
 
2014-07-12 11:54:47 AM  
But they haven't said anything about momma, or trains,or pickup trucks,  or prison, or getting drunk.

I'm just asking questions: Anyone reading the comments in that article? It's Obama's fault for letting in them illegals/not letting rodents get killed.


Seriously?

You are actually allowed to kill them on your land. What is done on city, county, and state land is a whole different story. Just ask Boulder County, which once tried to build a fence to protect the prairie dogs from accidentally venturing off open space into neighboring Broomfield county where they'd be killed. That worked about as well as you'd expect.

Wouldn't it easier to use it in a death metal song?
 
2014-07-12 12:12:40 PM  
You said it was flat out moronic
When I said we should keep things platonic
But when you speak of plague
You should never be vague
Do you mean like frogs or like pneumonic?

Now, if you love me
Let's please don't tease
If I can hold you then
Let me squeeze
My heart goes 'round and 'round
My love comes tumblin' down
You leave me pneumonic
Oh, I shake all over and
You know why
I'm sure it's love and
That's no lie
'Cause when you call my name
I burn like wood inflamed
You leave me pneumonic
Oh, baby! Mm-mm. Crazy
You're much too much
I can't love you enough
Now it's all right to hold me tight
But when you love me
Love me right
Now, come on, baby
Don't be shy
'Cause love was meant for you and I
Wind, rain, sleet or snow
I will be wherever you go
You leave me pneumonic

Hoopy Frood: You said it was flat out moronic

Dang, I totally forgot the part about the dog. Ummm... OK....

...So that whiskey last night was the stuff
I'll tell you, too much ain't enough
When a taxidermist
Drinks with you and gets pissed
Talking to your dead dog's not too ruff.

I dunno, do limericks work for country music?

Well I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison,
and I went to pick her up in the raaa-in,
but before I could get to the station in my pick up truck,
she done came down with pneumonic plague!

Pneumonic, bubonic,
Teutonic, ironic
Masonic, platonic,
And I loved that dog
I loved that dog....

Eh, you gotta hear the melody.
 
2014-07-12 12:37:11 PM  
You gave me the plague pneumonic
It's a shame it wasn't bubonic

Cause you me could spend eternity
licking out nuts like friends should be
 
2014-07-12 12:38:47 PM  
Last year they closed down Big Leeroy's

And they replaced it with a new Sonic

Still haven't been in there with the boys

I'd rather have the pneumonic

Small towns, big trucks, country girls and all that stuff, yee-haw we're American tough

It was also plague one time. Specifically acquired from a dog
