Vidiian filk of "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face."

This parody of "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face," lyrics copyright Alan Jay Lerner 1956, is protected as such by the copyright laws of the United States of America.

I've grown accustomed to the phage,
This almost feels like my own skin.
I've grown accustomed to the raids
On healthy lads and maids,
The boils, the scabs,
The pus, the labs -
And with your lungs inside me now
I'm breathing out and breathing in.

I was as handsome as the next guy
Way back when I had a face.
Surely we will find a cure someday, somehow, and yet,
I've grown accustomed to your looks,
Accustomed to your voice,
Accustomed to the phage!
