The Lyrics

Although I've done "I'm a Believer" as "I'm-a Jeff Weaver," the best-known version was by the Monkees, and I mentioned Neil in "Damn Cicada Time," this is the first time I've done a song based on the performance of Neil Diamond. I was unhappy because I had the accident described in the following parody at work. Until I met a man who had no work. And you thought this wasn't going to be a Bush-bashing parody. But it also salutes my favorite drug.
Prong thumb, ooh! Every office knows one.
Prong thumb, ooh! Tell ya, pal, it's no fun.

Get the file, and in a while, you'll get hurt and then
you'll feel like you have the blues 'cause when you prong
you'll scream on out again.
You'll scream on out again.

Prong thumb, ooh, scream and yelp and bellow.
Prong thumb, ooh, Emergency Room, hello.

Funny thing, the prong will sting, and there's a cry in your voice.
If they give you Vicodin, you're feeling good
you simply got no choice.

Prong (prong) thumb (thumb) ooh! (Ooh!)
Prong (prong) thumb (thumb) ooh! (Ooh!)

Get the file, and in a while, you'll get hurt and then
you'll feel like you have the blues 'cause when you prong
you'll scream on out again.

Prong (prong) thumb (thumb) ooh! (Ooh!)
Prong (prong) thumb (thumb) ooh! (Ooh!)

Funny thing, the prong will sting, and there's a cry in your voice.
If they give you Vicodin, you're feeling good
you simply got no choice.

Prong (prong) thumb (thumb) ooh! (Ooh!)
Prong (prong) thumb (thumb) ooh! (Ooh!)

Funny thing, the prong will sting, and there's a cry in your voice.
If they give you Vicodin, you're feeling good
you simply got no choice.

(Repeat 'til fade)

I've never used Vicodin...I'm a Demerol fan, myself...I can totally relate to the accident/pain/emergency room nature of this one...=) 5s, Michael...

Personally I prefer Percocet - to quote Johnny Carson's comment about the similar drug Percodan, "It's a shame to waste 'em on pain." Good job, MP, take three tablets and talk to that chartreuse chipmunk playing air-guitar over there.

An excellent entry in the wounded-thumb genre. I've done one and have another in the works. Nothing but Oxycontin will do, says Rush Limbaugh.

I had to give you a 5-5-4, 'cus I think you could have put more variety into it.
