Tinnitus. Don’t you just love it, the noises in your head
I ‘spose I’m just stuck with it, until the day I’m dead

If I’d known then, what I know now
I’d have covered my ears, when off to plough

For reasons unknown, again it’s so loud
Can’t hear a thing, when in a crowd

Best stay at home
Can’t use the phone

Lets hope it passes soon
Then I can hear a better tune!

Vertigo. Feeling dizzy, don’t be silly, take a deeper breath
Stand up straight, take a step, why do I feel like death

Been healthy most my life, but this is just a pain
Though everything is spinning round, I treat it with disdain

Like the noises in my head, perhaps this too will pass
If I don’t step out care-fully, I’ll end up on my ass

Bilious. Oh that feeling, rising in your throat
It’s at it again. Doesn’t it just get your goat

Take a pill and hope it goes
Have I got it right, God knows

It’s fading now, we are a team
Me and my Beta-hist-ine
