The Lyrics

Look at them there
On their free afternoon
It's a great thing they do
Yeah, they're all blood donors

I came along
Just to try something new
A scary thing I do?
I am a blood donor

So now it is my turn
Get iron levels checked
I am a blood donor

Your skin
Oh yeah, your skin - it's pierced
When they put that new needle in
You know, my blood type is O
My blood type is O

I'm lying there
On a blood donor's bed
My arm, it really hurts
The pressure cuff's so tight

Nurse traced a line
Yes, with her fingertip
She needs to find good veins
I am a blood donor

My blood
It goes into the bloodbag
Turns into something portable
But, do you know? I can't bleed myself dry
No, I can't bleed myself dry

It's true - you get free cups of tea
Or cups or orange squash
And free digestives too
Look what we've done today
Saved someone's life
Saved someone's life
Look what we've done - we're all blood donors

I like how you based your concept on other lines of the song, rather than the "all yellow" refrain. Took it in an unexpected direction.

Reminds me of a funny misheard lyric: "Don't stop the bleedin'." Fives

Thanks - it's based on experience. Donating blood and a needle phobia aren't the best combination.
