The Lyrics

For the Ages contest. YouTube version the parody is based on.
I miss my home, I want my clothes
Doc’s don’t seem to care ‘bout Hippocratic oaths
Tissue paper to get me healthy? They must all be daft
Give me Levis now because I can feel a draft
I can feel a draft

Oh tie a flimsy ribbon 'round my open gown
In this hospital
I don’t dare bend down
If I can’t tie a ribbon ‘round my open gown
I'll stay on this floor
Behind a closed door
Medicate my frown
If I can’t tie a flimsy ribbon ‘round my open gown

Nurse Ratchet, I’m gonna freeze
'Cause I shouldn’t wear goose bumps with every breeze
I'm really still in prison, walking ‘round with this I.V.
A little privacy so those behind me cannot see
I plead and beg you please:

Oh tie a flimsy ribbon 'round my open gown
If I can’t get help
I will go to town
If I can’t tie a ribbon ‘round my open gown
I'll take pills like mad
Flip out just a tad
Wear a silly crown
If I can’t tie a flimsy ribbon ‘round my open gown

Now the whole damn floor is cheering
And I can't believe I see
I have a brand new gown that covers all of me

I'm goin' home

(tie a flimsy ribbon ‘round my open gown) x3
(tie a flimsy ribbon ‘round my open gown) x3

That's why you never freeball in a hospital gown. The nuts you save, could be your own.

I would have replaced "I have a brand new gown that covers all of me", with something more risque if you follow what I'm saying, I was just waiting for the led it to that, still a good parody though.

(Ages) Good work Wolverine, I got a chuckle out of it;) The whoel thought of being stuck 'wide open' so to speak around a hospital was painted fairly well.

Thanks Matthias, TJC, Agri, BAD, Tom, Cat, Michael, and Jack.

Michael, I've seen a Jack Nicholson movie where he was an author...and then tried to redrum his family. But don't know the movie you're referring to.
