You can tell it's summer the insects are out
human's falling over trying to give them a clout
We walk around with a stings and the odd bite
tropical infections we'll end up having to fight
The pharmacies, they've seen it all
how did you get bitten there Mr Brown from No. 24?
A tablet here and some cream over there
lots of insect repellent sprayed into the air
I know about this as it has happened to me
a bloody big bump I had for a week or maybe three
It was hot, itchy and made me feel low
at one point I thought I was growing an extra elbow
I applied every concoction that I found on the net
I visited the doctor so not to fret
He said 'take an antihistamine without any haste'
didn't like to tell him it calmed down after applying some toothpaste.
