You have a secret friend you know
Who follows you all day
Sometime hes playing hide and seek
When he keeps out your way.
Then just as you feel peaceful…
And you’re feeling really well
He decides to leave the secret place
And make your life just hell.
You know when he is near you
Cos your body starts to shake
Just very gently at first
Then you realise your mistake,
You thought that you were clever
Your body calm and still
You forgot the time of day
And missed your lunch time pill.
Well he’s happy to have tricked you
And put you in a spin
That calm and happy day you had
Is now firmly in the bin.
But just don’t let him beat you
Cos you can win the war
Take medication as you should
And show this secret friend the door.
