The Lyrics

Chiropractic involves, among other things, I'm sure, the proper alignment of the spine. All I can tell you is that it works and I feel better after each session. The doctor had a memory blank when I spoke of making a parody of some Burt Bacharach songs but seemed to recall a few when I told him Dionne Warwick sang a good number of them in the 1960's. This is the first Bacharach parody but I plan on adding more!
“Do You Know the Way of Vertebrae?”

Do you know the way of ver-te-brae?
I’ve had a pain so long, something is wrong, but I can’t say
I have over thirty ver-te-brae
I’m hoping you can help, sometime today, if that’s okay?

Pain is such a great big problem
Try a chi-ro-prac-tor, near or far
In a moment or two, you’ll feel like a star
If your back’s misaligned, they’ll treat you fast
Then all the pains you used to have
They’re gone—you’re feeling good at last!

Problems I sure had with ver-te-brae
I know that my spine was misaligned, I sure can say
Now I’m at the doctor’s place today
Some pain to leave, I’ll never grieve, if that’s okay

They have lots of treatment options:
Starting with a table and an eval
After that exam, you're not on your own:
Appointments made, you come and stay
And then you go back to your way
You’re feeling better anyway!

I have over 30 vertebrae
Do you know the way of vertebrae?

(musical interlude)

Spinal problems can be painful
Chiropractic may just help you along
In a session or two, you just might feel strong
Every time you come, you’re farther along
And all the rest who never came
All I can say, they’re still the same. . ..

I've got over 30 vertebrae
Do you know the way of vertebrae?
Can't wait till you fix my vertebrae
