Regurgitation, a song parody

REGURGITATION (to the tune of ‘Abracadabra’)

I eat up, I can’t keep it down
I spew it out all over the ground
All over the ground and on my shoes
Until I have no more to lose
Every time you feed me too much
I lose my cookies, I lose my lunch
I lose it all in one big heave
Get the bucket, baby, before you leave

Regurgitation, I’m gonna lose all of my rations
Regurgitation, regurgitation

It makes me gag, it makes me barf
It leaves me empty like I’m gonna starve
My stomach’s aching and my head is dismal
Keep on spooning in the Pepto-Bismol

Regurgitation, I’m gonna lose all of my rations
Regurgitation, regurgitation

I feel upset and I feel crummy,
I feel the turmoil in my tummy
Upchucked all night and part of today
Feel like I’m puking myself away
Each retch is worse than the one before
Wonder how I could vomit any more
Just when I think I might be done
The nausea comes back and I need to run

Regurgitation, I’m gonna lose all of my rations
Regurgitation, regurgitation

Every time I eat too much
I lose my cookies, I lose my lunch
Just lose it all in one big heave
Get the bucket, baby, before you leave

I eat up, I can’t keep it down
I keep spewing on the ground

Yeah, a parody of the Steve Miller song. Just a rough quick idea that came and may never go any further than this because, to be honest, it's not really that funny. But I had the thought and had to get it out of my system. I could possibly come up with a better word than 'regurgitation'  but it had the right length even if it doesn't sound anything like 'abracadabra.' Think of it as a place holder in case something better comes to mind down the road.
