All 'cause you are that ill

Ooh how I like to be ill
You get along quite often with boiled eggs from your pals

All those drips on my same hand?
You tell me you cannot see my veins
Have they dissappeared?
I hate to be sick but I like those eggs
What should I do?
Call for Mrs Anopheles?
Yes, When I need eggs
Painful eggs
