1423 – The Cure for Hiccups

The Cure for Hiccups
It’s simple, swallow spoons of sugar, while on your head, while closing your eyes, while holding your breath…


There ain’t no cure for hiccups.
They never (hiccup) work.
I’ve had ’em for eleven years.
I’ve (hiccup) gone berserk.

I’ve (hiccup) held my breath in
until my cheeks were red.
I drank some (hiccup) water while
I stood upon my head.

My sister (hiccup) scared me.
It didn’t do the trick.
I’ve swallowed sugar by the spoon…
That (hiccup) made me sick.

I’m sick of having hiccups.
I wish that they were through.
Hey wait a sec… I think they’re gone…
At last! Ya (hiccup) hoo!
