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.

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?

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.

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

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

washington-babylon: *Ahem*

A long, long time ago
I can still remember how that doggie used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make that puppy dance
And make FARK be happy for a while
But February made me shiver
With dead squirrels he'd deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn't take one more breath
I can't remember if I cried
When I read from the plague he'd died,
But something touched me deep inside
The day my doggie died

So bye-bye, to my doggie and I,
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry
And the good docs were off drinkin' whiskey and rye
Singin' "This'll be the day that you die
This'll be the day that you die"

Did you write the book of drugs Ills
And do you have faith in shots and pills
If the doctor tells you to?
Now do you believe in cures and dough
Can money save your mortal soul
And can you teach me how to breathe real slow?

Well, I know that I'm in trouble again
'Cause I saw you lookin' pretty grim
You read through all my charts
Man, I just made my last post on FARK.

I was a lonely basement dwelling F**k
With a pneumonic plague and fate that sucked
And I knew I was out of luck
The day the doggie died

 So bye-bye, to my doggie and I,
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry
And the good docs were off drinkin' whiskey and rye
Singin' "This'll be the day that you die
This'll be the day that you die"


/About all I want to tackle tonight.


Bad form to reply to one's own post, but caught a little phrase that was off. FTFM

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

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.

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.

♫ 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... ♫
