“Saturday in E.R.”

*with profound apologies to Chicago fans! This was my day today and I couldn’t shake the earworm so…
 Saturday in ER

I think it was before New Years Eve

 Saturday in ER

I think it was before New Years Eve

People screaming, people crying

A man begging Morphine

Singing Italian songs?

Can you dig it (yes, I can)

And I’ve been waiting such a long time

For Service

 Saturday in ER

I think it was before New Years Eve

 Saturday in ER

I think it was before New Years Eve

People moaning, really aching

A man playing air guitar

Singing for us all

Will you help him change the world

Can you dig it (yes, I can)

And I’ve been waiting such a long time

For service

Slow motion nurses fly the colours of the day

A physician still can tell stories his own way

listen children all is not lost

all is not lost

Endless days in the ER

Every day’s just creeping by

Endless days in the ER

Every day’s just creeping by

People reaching, people touching

It’s no celebration

Waiting for us all

If we want it, really want it

Can you dig it (yes, I can)

And I’ve been waiting such a long time

For this day to end

Thanksgiving Cheer

To the tune of “We’re off to see the wizard”

We’re off to see the in-laws
And that always gives us pause
With all our beliefs, they are at odds
Because they’re such unbelievable clods!

So we’re going to buy the liquor
The wonderful beverage of gods
Because because because because because
Because of the wonderful numbing it does!

We’re off to see the in-laws
For all the bloody good that it does!
