The Lyrics

Intro? I don't need no stinking intro!
God, I feel like hell today
Prostate gland they took away
Nurse came in, said "Be a man
Are you strong enough to use the can?"

Weenie's blue and don't feel right
I ain't had to go the whole damn night
I'm not feelin' good so here I lay
When the nurse came in I heard her say

"Try to pee
You'll feel better to relieve
Try to pee
And please don't weave"

I'm standing here I cannot go
I think plumbing's broken down below
Just try and try till I can't stand
I'm not strong enough to use the can

When I've shown the nurse I just can't piss
She says "Turn around we'll just use this!"
And she holds a bag with one big tube
In the other hand a jar of lube

I just peed
It feels better to relieve
I just peed
And also heaved
Caw Caw

Sorry Sheryl. I do like your music and the fact you play bass, though. Just submitted in a hurry.
Rick D - January 08, 2004 - Report this comment
HMMM Maybe I do need a stinking intro.

This was funny... isn't it nice how once you're in the hospital all norms of privacy go out the window?? BTW, sorry for the long absence, I had sporadic access to internet over the holidays and have been playing catch-up ever since!

Rick D - Actually my above message was verbal to my friend up here who submitted it to let you know what was up last night.. I went to vote on it now ( but Ray musta already "5" you across because the numbers didn't change (same computer). Now of course since this is a privileged communication and no one else will see it I can tell you I had some similiar "feelings" to your protagonist last night after waiting a bit too long between "rest" stops on the drive up from L.A. - Owww... no fun...but, happily this morning I was able to hum the ending part of "Long Time Coming" (or is it "Long Time Gone"?). Do you suppose discussing your regularity, bladder and bowel functions on an open, on-line posting section has anything to do with the ravages (current and potential future) of aging? I don't recall thinking about it all that much when I was say, oh....25 or so. Leah, good to see that you're back. As I've noted a couple times already this evening I've been suffering 'Net' withdrawl and specifically "parody deprivation" since 12/31 until a couple hours ago. Looks like I'm over-dosing right about now.

(ABC's) DKTOS - I'll tag you a vote if I could get a listen to the original. I can't tell how it relates to the original and didn't really find all that much humor in the lyrics. Perhaps this is what I'm missing.

(ABC) "I just peed / And also heaved" ... that line actually made me laugh out loud for real, go figure.

S-round Finally, being forced to endure this song on the muzak at work has an upside... and the upmost side of the upside was going straight into enjoying your rewrite! Nice job!

Good ending, and the whole parody was realistic enough to make me think you writing from experience.
