The Lyrics

Relax...don't sweat it
Cause I'm...a medic
I urge...just in case
Go get an x-ray

If you've...been bad to the bone
A touch makes you groan
Then I'd say
To go get an x-ray

Please don't cry!
(I'll take pictures of your leg)
Black and white!
(Let's hope you made a clean break)
I say, "My!
You're looking radiant today!"
You had an x-ray!

That arm...looks broken
Wish I...was jokin'
Now before...we operate
We'll take one more x-ray

Photons fly!
(They cause damage to your chest)
That is why!
(You have to wear this lead vest)
Don't get fried!
Stray particles can irritate
Watch out for x-rays

I have an issue. a bone to pick with you
So let's get a better view, yeah
While you keep your clothes on, I'll bathe you in photons
We'll see what's inside of you!

We'll have...some closure
With one...exposure
Move left, move right, now down, stay still
Who told you, "Break a leg?"

(I'll take pictures of your leg)
(Let's hope you made a clean break)
I say, "My!
You're looking radiant today!"
You had an x-ray!

Please don't cry!
(I'll take pictures of your leg)
Black and white!
(Let's hope you made a clean break)
I say, "My!
You're looking radiant today!"
You had an x-ray!

Photons fly!
(They cause damage to your chest)
That is why!
(You have to wear this lead vest)
Don't get fried!
Stray particles can irritate
Watch out for x-rays

Cause you need an x-ray

Wow. I never thought a song about xrays could be this funny. So glad you got it off your chest after your boob operation! Outstanding punmanship here...d;:^)

Wowza...I'm beyond impressed, Backstreet Boys notwithstanding. And coincidentally, I'm actually looking at going back to school for Radiology right now. No joke!

Primary diagnosis: The patient has put too much of his body weight on his crutch, thereby fallen and breaking both that and again his previously hurt leg. Will be given a new crutch and a plaster and then be sent home to recover. :-)

(ABC-X) What can I say for the X round but simply X-cellent!
Phil Alexander - January 30, 2005 - Report this comment
And now, the end is near
And now my leg is full of fractures
A night of too much beer
And falling down... I've had much practice
The doc, he says to me
Not just your leg, also your neck's a
Place I need to look
Give it an X-Ray...

...or something like that ;-)

(ABC-X) DKTOS but a very good read here...

...PS, Jeff - you've given me an idea for the (now how shall I put this) most "creative" parody of all time ;-)
