There's a little bitty bug that's a-goin' all around
He's a-hittin' all the cities and he's hittin' all the towns
Beetles don't claim him and neither do the fleas
Because he makes everybody a-choo (sneeze)!
I've got that Asiatic Flu

Well he comes slippin' in when you least expect him
Folks are a-takin' those shots to protect them
I got mine just the other day
Now my sneezin's all gone a-choo!
Still got that Asiatic Flu

He can make feel you so doggone blue
Your eyes will run and your nose will too
Your head will ache and you'll chill and freeze
But most of all you'll sit and sn-a-choo!
I've got that Asiatic Flu

Now London has a bridge that's known to the world
And evening in Paris will make your hair curl
Russia's always kickin' up a hullabaloo
And Asia's got a bug called the A-a-choo!
That Asiatic Flu

Now here we were just as fine we as could be
When in walked a bug just as big as you please
You know what I think about this here disease
Give it back to the Asians and let them sn-a-choo!
Everybody's got that Asiatic Flu
Everybody's got that Asiatic Flu
