In order to prepare myself for the big fight
And oh the love,
I had to get on with it, though,
Operating completely on the fly, winging it with jabs,
I asked my people,

The Greek Flu (AKA Archimedes Screw)
I went to the doctor who told me I had a case of the Telly Savalases.
I demanded a second opinion so he informed me that I might be coming down with the Vitas Gerulaiteses.
And then he warned me about that other foreign, deadly virus, the Roman Polanskis.
The doctor said, "Make a sentence with the word Demothenes."
I replied, "Demothenes can do is bend the legs."
He told me to haul my Ari Onasis out of there.
Having just recovered from the Maria Callases,
I swallowed a good does of the John Cassavettes,
Warmed up a plate of the Felix Papalardis,
And tired to drink myself to sleep with a bottle of the Nana Maskouris,
Only to find that I had forgotten to take my Irene Pappases.
But by then it was too late, and I was in the bathroom with a severe attack of the Yannis.
