The Lyrics

A low-bitrate mp3 of the song can be found here.
Exploded, piloting blasted tin can - lacked height
Disintegrated when stopped soaring - ignite
It’s not a dream, they re-assembled me
Lost supply my own so I lack some things I need

Well, I got a brand new pair of shoulder blades
I got some brand new knees
My bod will be all knit together
Bionic surgery
Easy bounding a hundred miles
Cost six million for me
Oh, I got a brand new pair of shoulder blades
And got some brand new knees

So rad my sight: like telescope sees where you are
Can run so fast, and can run pretty far
For cyborgy who’s contrived
I do well around the girls
When I’m on dates, with my prosthesis unfurled

Oh, yeah yeah...

I worked for gov’ment in top secret mode
I suggest I am vit’ly bestowed
Bet homeland got taxed for overhauling me
I'm okay with bone, but lack those bits for to breed

But, I got a brand new pair of shoulder blades
And got some brand new knees
Six big ones, they should guarantee parts won’t
Fly off when I sneeze
La, la, la...
Oh, I got a brand new pair of shoulder blades
I got some brand new knees

A six-million dollar effort here! Thanks for the mp3, I wasn't familiar with this one.

A better, stronger, faster parody here. There's an OS I haven't heard in years! I guess it was a different kind of key party back then.

Very good. Here's one called "I've Got A Brand New Set Of Denture Plates, You've Got A Brand New Knee" by Dee Range that's really good too.www.amiright.com/parody/60s/melaniesafka1.shtml

Good idea...a medely of Melanie's greatest hit.
If it cost 6 million 30 years ago, what's that in today's dollars ?

Dear Six-Million Dollar Man, glad to hear that the knees do the trick, eh?

Quite inventive and creative

You hobbits would definately have a leg up on the competition if you entered this in one of the inthe00s.com messageboard song parody comps. I wonder if that coffee Alvin was drinking went out his nose - don't you just hate it when that happens? Which leads me to a question - If a cow laughs will milk come out her nose? And I'm glad I wasn't drinking anything when I read the "Shoulder Blades" line. Pure Merry & Pippin here. I LOLed at this when I read it. Good one! Great Five!

Regenerating body parts may very well soon be scientific fact rather than science fiction. Brooke Army Medical Center which is part of Ft Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas is doing research using something they nicknamed "Pixie Dust". This substance tricks the body into doing what stem cells do and that is to grow tissue, bone, tendon, etc. One soldier is actually starting to regrow a finger using this therapy. Here are some links to news articles about this amazing and promising medical breakthrough for those of you who may be interested:
