The Lyrics

Anyone would think it's my fault I'm a hypochondriac...
Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
watchin' wheel-chairs, roll in
then I watch 'em rollin' out agin, yeah

been waiting for the doctor all day
watchin' the hours drift away
just waitin for the doctor all day
wastin' ti-hi-hi-hi-hime

I left my home this morning
with a niggling little twinge in my toe
better go and visit my doctor
coz I'm sure he would be eager to know, yeah

To while away some time in my chair
there's this 5-year-old I'm tryn'to out-stare
the only thing in common we share
is wastin' ti-hi-hi-hi-hime

Looks like -
I've been forgotten!
Nobody has called my name!
I've watched -
ten people come and go through!
yet there was nobody -
when I came!

Sittin here all on my own
watchin' everybody else going home, yeah
receptionist is closing the door
now what would she be doing that for?

The cleaner's turning off the main light
gee, I reckon that could hurt my eyesight, yeah
I'll wait here for the doctor to say
it'll be fi-hi-hi-hi-hine

For some reason, I can TOTALLY see you having a staring contest with a 5 year old. Too funny! Fabulous job here, darling Stu!
