Waterfalls (dysentery cover)

12 Jul 2007

A cover of the Waterfalls song.

The gut infection caused by protozoa:
Entamoeba histolytica
Causes cramping of the abdomen, fever, rectal pain,
Even sepsis, seizure and kidney failya’.
Lactose intol’rance is just one more symptom
Of a disease that you gotta keep yourself from.
So don’t go drinking from the contaminated waters
‘Cause those parasites, they won’t let you rest. Listen to me:

Don’t go chasing waterfalls,
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to.
Drink from clean water supplies or nothing at all
Else your bowels will move too fast.

Once ingested as an infected cyst,
They group on your intestinal wall,
Then get into your bloodstream; your body can’t handle
The effect they have on the liver, lungs and brain.
If concerned, go n’ see the doctor,
Before the illness goes and takes its toll.
Treatment may be natur’l, like Malay apple root,
Or pharmaceutical, metronidazole. Ya’ll don’t hear me…
