The Hospital Song
by 10cc

  • Nobody sends me birthday cards
    Nobody brings me flowers
    I'm just here for operations
    I've been out for hours
    When I come to I'll wet my bed
    'Cause when I get mad I sink so low
    As matron knows

    I get off on what you give me, darling
    I get off on what you give to me
    Yeah, I get off on what you give me, darling
    I get off on what you give to me

    And when I go to that seedy ward up in the sky
    You'll be waiting with a hypodermic needle
    And a graph

    Here comes the dark
    (I'm grateful for my anaesthetic)
    Out goes the spark
    (Delirious and apathetic)

    When I come to I'll wet my bed
    And when I get well I'll take revenge
    I'll wreak my wrath
    On all blood donors and their sisters
    Visiting time and flowers
    When sister brings that bedpan 'round
    I'll piss like April showers

    I get off on what you give me, darling
    I get off on what you give to me
    Yeah, I get off on what you give me, darling
    I get off on what you give to me

    I get off on what you give me, darling
    I get off on what you give to me
    Yeah, I get off on what you give me, darling
    I get off on what you give to me

    And when I go
    I'll die of plaster casting love Writer/s: LOL CREME, KEVIN GODLEY
