Well, for some time now I've been aware
That my hearing's been lower than my underwear.
It's called sensorineural hearing loss
Ototoxicological, and it ain't boss.

Took quinine for leg cramps, don't ya see?
Worked great, but caused severe loss ta me.
Can't hear high frequencies, like a woman's voice,
But my wife wrote a note with some Good Advice.

All of the above is true. I learned it over a month ago, following a full-blown hearing test at the local University's Audiology Department. And I've been going to classes and reading up on it.

Sensorineural hearing loss means that you can't hear high frequency sounds very well, if at all. And really and truly and I ain't kiddin' hear are those sounds:

/f//k/ /th//s/ /sh//t/

I about split a gut laughing.
