The Lyrics

The Bends: A disorder, seen especially in deep-sea divers, caused by the formation of nitrogen bubbles in the blood and tissues following a sudden drop in the surrounding pressure, as when ascending rapidly from a dive, and characterized by severe pains in the joints and chest, skin irritation, cramps, and paralysis. Note: in this parody the 'jar' means the decompression chamber.Note: when singing the title lyrics, it should be sung "scuba die, ving gave me the bends"
The pressure had gone too fast
I didn't think my air would last

Scuba diving gave me the bends

Like so many of the times past
The symptom's here it's come so fast

Scuba diving gave me the bends

Here comes the ambulance
Gurney's from the car
My joints are in pain, I wrench
Didn't think I went down far

As my bo-dy rests
I won't forget the watch I lost

Scuba diving gave me the bends


Tried to surface too fast
Didn't think my breath would last

Scuba diving gave me the bends

My alarm bells began to ring
I swear I thought I saw a shark fin

Scuba diving gave me the bends

Here comes the pain again
I leaned on my arm
My efforts were in vain again
I'm back here in this jar

As my joints are decompressed
I think about the watch I lost

Scuba diving gave me the bends


This whole trip was a drag
My instructor lied what a f*g

Scuba diving gave me the bends

I hope that he breaks his back
Or gets bitten by that shark

Scuba diving gave me the bends
Thanks for reading.

A parody about caisson disease... Pretty amusing.
