The Lyrics

DKTOS? Scroll down this page for a MIDI. Fictional story of weight-lifting gone awry.
(long intro)

If I keep on trainin', back is goin' to ache...

If I keep on strainin', back is goin' to ache...

Liftin' heavy weights, you'll need a taste for pain...

Clean was heavy, got to my knees and groaned, oh

Clean too heavy, stuck at my knees and moaned..

I've got what it takes, mistakes a' muscled man heaved his pole
Oh hell, oh hell, oh hell

Ah yes it hurt me real bad,
When I'm maxin' and snapped my leg bone,
My back goes.. out it all blows
Health is goin' down south
And that's terrible news
'cause I don't even have HMO!

Ahh!, Ahh!, Ahhh!

(long instrumental interlude)

[Fast foward past ER trip to hospital room
where inadequate health care is being dispensed.]

Doctors they tell ya, 'pain it'll do you no good'...

Now, Motrin will cure ya, takin' them as you.. should..

When your back does ache, label says just take two..
Oooh woo-hoo

All that night.., stayed up in traction and moaned..

Next ten nights.., was out of action not home...

I think about my back ache and my broken bone..
Oh no!

ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah
ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah, ahh-ah-ah
[MIDI Gets pretty bad after this part]
Go!, Go!


I'm leaving the hospital

Fleeing the hospital

Sorry but I can't pay you

Money's out, money's out now, money's out
(repeat above line ad nauseum for outro)

First I started to read this parody and though; 4s. Then I found TOS in a sidewindow and realised how well the moaning etc in the text fitted with it, hence I changed my vote to 5s before I hit the button. :-)

SOTM - There's no guarantee that it will still be there when YOU (However you are) read this, but I found the original song here:

SOTM!? Now there's a prime example of Copy and Haste! I hope it doesn't confuse to many people during the 5 minute waiting I'll have to endure before posting this second comment! My bad, my really bad...

Thanks Peter (x3) and Pat. Peter: Your comments upstaged my parody I think. :-) Pat, not sure on what point you meant complicated; the third verse (the closely spaced one) was a pain to do- several internal and end-line "O" rhymes in there. I managed to get most of them.
