I’m allergic to stardust
Holding hands makes me sneezy!
Whisper “nothings” if you must
But then itching will seize me!

Lovers break out in song
When their someone arrives
But when you come along
I break out in hives!

I’m allergic to stardust
Call it “Lover’s Congestion!”
Wishing upon a star just
Interrupts my digestion!

They say that “love is rash;”
I’m living proof it’s true!
I’m allergic to stardust
Got no antidote to you!

Bridge:
Your kisses leave me breathless…
Though not in the way I’d like!
And bliss should leave me deathless
And not cause an insulin spike!

Verse 2:
I’m allergic to stardust
Don’t accuse me of crying!
Wishing upon a star just
Ups the salve I’m applying!

Us-‘lly I’m debonnaire
Calm, and cool I suppose
But when you give that stare
I must blow my nose!

I’m allergic to sunsets
Purple hues make me achy
Serenades give me Tourette's
And your smile makes me shaky!

Wish I could hold you close
There’s not a thing to do
I’m allergic to stardust
Got no antidote to you!
