The Lyrics

Recently, I visited a friend who had gone for an EKG and was detained for open-heart surgery. He held a heart-shaped cushion to his chest to prevent failed stitches. I can't explain why TOS came to mind. Its words were quite shocking 40 years ago, but I hope that amIright editors allow them (left side below).
.... Sodomy ...I... Heart of me
.......... Fellatio ...I... Felt painful, so
...... Cunnilingus ...I... Funny. Bring us
... Pederasty ...I... Hemoplasty.
(as said in a confessional) ...I... (listening to stethoscope)
Father, why do these words ...I... Doctor, I truly heard .........
.... sound so nasty? ...I... sounds so ghastly!
Masturbation ...I... Operation ...
.... Can be fun ...I... Can be done;
.... Join the holy orgy ...I... Join the whole aorta.
..... Kama Sutra ...I... Can my sutures
...... Ev-er-y-one! ...I... Sever, e'en one?
The "extraneous" periods and spaces serve to center each line so that the dividers align (at least in the Preview).

In line 2, "faintly" rather than "painful," fits TOS better. "Hemoplasty" may be incorrect; "-plasty" indicates the source of tissue, which in aortic surgery is leg veins, so perhaps "pedoplasty" is more accurate (and fits TOS).

Pretty "sharp" satire, Barry! Also nice to compare the OS to your own lyrics and the pacing is well matched! I've never seen the musical but I've enjoyed this nonetheless. Great creativity, especially with the stethoscope to replace the confessional. Heck, those dividers to your song made me have a vision of comparing the scenes between the confessional scenes and the doctor scenes. Just for that, I'm still giving you 555's!

CMM: Thanks; I thought that TOS lyrics needed to be "cleaned up" after closing. The real-life patient is home and recovering, BTW.
