The Wood Brothers sing about your trouble.
Leon Russell & Friends’ “Trouble In Mind.” The song dates to 1924 at least, and was recorded by Chippie Hill and Louie Armstrong in 1926 (and no, we’re not going to discuss the double entendres of the lyrics).

Here’s the balloon in better health:
Snake’s gonna hock up one helluva bezoar.
