The Lyrics

This pardody deals with the ambivalent feelings a donor card holder might feel. Many people wont sign up to be organ donors because they don't want to think about it. They think that getting a donor card is a self imposed death decree. But I think donor card holders are heros in the taking. We must remember that our nation's highways take more lives than the war in Iraq. How many people would like to give to the team of doctors working on a heart patient? Not many takers I'm sure. But for the few givers out there: someone, someday might appreciate your livers. Am I Right?
Give in death
Your organs stay alive
You'll be giving someone future
Save your breath
Death is a give and take
Circumstances can need sutures

Harvest self
You are the gift you make
You and you - and that's the donor way
Guard yourself
You're every thought you take
Let the gory go

Holder of a Donor Card
Holder of a Donor Card
Much better than - a
Owner of a buried heart
Holder of a Donor Card

Say you don't want to answer?
Death's better left ignored

Donate now
A sequeled after life
Necromance self heroic
You give yourself
Yes all for patient's sake
There's no real reason to be stoic
Be yourself
Give your reason a chance
You cant once you're deceased

Holder of a Donor Card
Holder of a Donor Card
Much better than - a
Owner of a buried heart
Holder of a Donor Card

(Holder of a Donor Card)

Ponder your own decision
You could donate so
My book says never stifle you choice at all
In the end you've got to go
Live before you leave
And don't you vegitate at all - no no

Holder of a Donor Card

Holder of a Donor Card
Holder of a Donor Card
Much better than - a
Owner of a buried heart
Holder of a Donor Card
(repeat)

Holder of a Donor Card

Sooner or later life's conclusion
Will decide each beating heart
Some will provide some will deny
Who will sign the donor card?

Holder of a Donor Card

Holder of a Donor Card

Don't decrease your free will at all
Don't decrease your free will at all
Don't decrease your free will at all
Just release it!

Holder of a Donor Card

545 Good, good point, too. My favorite line was 'let the gory go.'

Can there be such a thing as a heartwarming parody, I'll have to say Yes and donate some 5s. :-)

545 Loved the title and some excellent lines. I think tales of people having their organs used when they might possibly not be dead/brain dead for sure is another reason why some are not so keen.....

Excellent piece, Lionel...well-written and well-said. And is there a more valuable and yet less difficult thing to do than to taking the time to register for organ donation? In CA you can do it on your Driver's License with a little colored dot...I've had one on mine for many years now...if they can use any parts of me when I'm done with them to help someone else they are welcome to them. 5's across here ~ ~ ~

Thanks everyone. I always liked this song but never looked intently at the lyrics. But after looking at them, this idea hit me. And I went with it.
