The Lyrics

Now for today's safety lesson..........
Bring me a stretcher for my back pain
I'd sure like to feel my legs again
Walking days are gone, call up nine one one
Cause hey, baby, I fell off a ladder

I was standing up on the very top rung
Think that branch under me punctured a lung
Moving days are gone, get me off this lawn
Cause hey baby, I fell off a ladder

Well, I fell off this ladder
It's what I get for leaning on the door
Listen medic, I see a tunnel and a light
But can't get off the floor... What a day!

Give me a quick ride to the hospital
I'd help but I'm way too feeble
Thinking days are gone, drugs I will be on
Cause hey, baby, I fell off a ladder
ow!

If you've led a good life, and die falling off a ladder, do you become a ladder-day saint?

I fell off a ladder once but luckily gravity was down for maintenance at the time and I was unhurt. Great parody, Rick!
