The Lyrics

Well I walked in to the clinic because the weather outside was so hot
Then I recognized suddenly where I was
From the people stretched out on the cot
I had one eye on the exit as I thought I'd rather not…
That's when the nurse said that she'd be my partner,
She'd be my partner,
Now, where's your vein,
We need your blood so we can help others,
Where's your vein,
We need your blood so we can help others
Don't we, don't we,

Well I lay down feeling quite queasy as the nurse rolled up my sleeve
She said, don't worry now, this is easy, as I wished that I could leave,
As she tied the cord around my arm and said now gently squeeze
But all I saw was the size of the needle, size of the needle,
Now, where's your vein,
We need your blood so we can help others,
Where's your vein,
We need your blood so we can help others
Don't we, don't we,

Well I felt this jab going in my arm, but it wasn't as bad as I feared
And I lay there squeezing my fist for a while, and feeling extremely weird
Then they gave me a nice hot cup of tea and thanked me for my time,
And as I left I could hear the nurse saying, hear the nurse saying...
Now, where's your vein,
We need your blood so we can help others,
Where's your vein,
We need your blood so we can help others
Don't we, don't we

A pleasant romp in a jocular "vein". Nicely done. ;D
