Johnny Cash on Heartburn

My blog has been rather serious lately, so I decided it’s time for a laugh. What better way, when up with pregnancy heartburn and insomnia, than to write a spoof of a Johnny Cash country song? When you’re seven months pregnant and can’t sleep, you get to do stuff like that—it says so in the manual, pg 136. (What manual?? This girl is making stuff up…)

So put on your cowboy hats, strum your imaginary guitars, and enjoy…and if you’re up with heartburn, too, just pretend your TUMS are marshmallows…

🔥 Burning Ring of Fire 🔥

Heartburn’s a burning thing

And it makes a fiery ring

Round and full of gas

I am a pregnant lass

🔥

I lay down and a burning ring of fire

Shoots up my throat like an electric wire

And it burns burns burns

That ring of fire

I am on fire

🔥

I lay down and a burning ring of fire

Shoots up my throat like an electric wire

And it burns burns burns

That ring of fire

I am on fire

🔥

The taste of love is sweet

But it keeps me on my feet

I lay down like a sleepy child

Oh, but the fire went wild

🔥

I lay down and a burning ring of fire

Shoots up my throat like an electric wire

And it burns burns burns

That ring of fire

I am on fire

🔥 🔥 🔥

    Poor you, hope the next months go better , you need a magic fire extinguisher! We were up in the night too as it was so windy, the power went out and Rob got dressed to go out and connect the generator to keep the fridges on. Very strong wind, even the garbage bins were knocked over!

  2. Storm warning out here at the lighthouse too but it’s sunny today and we saw the first rainbow we’ve seen in months this morning too! Now, for heartburn, also try a half teaspoon of ordinary baking soda in a half-cup of water. Swish it around and down the hatch in two gulps. Tastes meh but it really neutralizes acid fast!
