The Lyrics

I just heard the original song while visiting a nursing home and came
up with the following "hip" rewrite...
You can tell my ma, "be careful at the spa,
Use caution where you walk if you're alone."
You can tell my dad, "with that bum knee that you have,
Just don't fall on it and lie on the ground, prone."

'Cause that friggin' HMO, they don't want to know,
They'll hold up all your forms and treat you slow
When anyone is sick, they have a clever trick--
I think they make the rules up as they go.

So please don't slip
On your achy breaky hip
Insurance will not pay you if you're ill
And please stand tall
(When the) medic comes to call
You can't afford him anyway, that's all.

If you have disease, your doctor won't be pleased,
The nurse will give you shots, send you away,
And if you break a bone, a cast will keep you home,
Good luck figuring out how you will pay.

Or if you break your neck, fall down and hit the deck,
Your forehead bleeds, the blood it flows away,
The doc says "stay right there, I'll check with medicare...
I'm sorry but we can't treat you today."

So please don't slip
On your achy breaky hip
Insurance will not pay you if you're ill
And please stand tall
(When the) medic comes to call
You can't afford him anyway, that's all.

(repeat & fade to flatline sound effect...)

Great job. Just don't slip on the mullets and get an achy-breaky hip.

It only hurts when I laugh! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! (That's 5.) Somebody should do "Achy Breaky Hair" for BRC.

Thanks all for your comments. I'm glad I went with this tune, it worked out well I think. Originally I was going to do a similar theme to the tune of Sk8r Boi. It would have been called WalkR Boi...

Why doesn't anyone ever mention that Achy Breaky Heart was not originally Billy Ray Cyrus's but Charlie Floyds of South Carolina. I guess it is another thing he ignores in Myrtle Beach....Like his son Cody!

I read that Leaving on a Jet Plane was written by John Denver
