Here’s a verse about coughing:   I’ve got a cough in my mouth.  I’ve got a cough in my mouth.
                                                     I drove in my car (beep, beep) and traveled down south.
                                                     And now I’ve got this cough in my mouth!
And about hiccups:              What do you do about hiccups?  What do you do with these hiccup?
                                              You could shout a big “boo” or “this is a stick-up” (you try to rhyme the word hiccup! Ok, you can change it.)
                                               I don’t know what to do with these hiccups!
