Songs :

  • Golden Rod by Blondie :
    "Growing Wild, not in the city
    Gave me an allergy...
    Another blonde, not from the city
    gave me an allergy
    And you can see me drinking the poison"
  • One World by John Martyn :
    "It's like an allergy with no apology
    It saps my energy,and denies my integrity"
  • Allergies by Simon and Garfunkel :
    "Allergies to dust and grain
    Maladies
    Remedies
    Still these allergies remain
    My hand can't touch a guitar string
    My fingers just burn and ache
    My head intercedes with my bodily needs...
    But my heart is allergic
    To the women I love"
