Lyrics

(Ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey allergy)
Sometimes you may think that you've got the
common cold
Your throat is really itchy and you've
got a runny nose
Your skin you need to scratch and your
eyes may start to swell
It's an allergic reaction that is
why you feel unwell
It's an allergic reaction, which is
why you feel unwell
(Ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey allergy)

You might be playing with a pet and
you start to sneeze and cough
Try not to rub your eyes 'cause that can hurt a lot
Not everyone's the same and there's
no one you should blame
Yes, everybody's different but allergy's its name.
Yes, everybody's different but allergy's its name
(Ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey, allergy)

They can make you have a cough,
a-choo and wheeze
It can be from the wind and the
pollen in the trees
When you feel a little (sniff)
and a (gasp) when you breathe
You quickly tell a grown-up 'cause
it may be an allergy
You can have a reaction to foods that you eat
It can be really serious with
shellfish, nuts and seeds
If you offer someone food, first check
what they can eat
You must be very careful 'cause they
may have allergies
You must be very careful 'cause they
may have allergies
(Ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey allergy)

Some people may have eggs
Some people may have dairy
But other people if they have them
It can be a little scary
(Ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey allergy)
(Ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey allergy)
(Ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey allergy)
(Ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey allergy)
(Ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey, ooey allergy)
