The Lyrics

I know, I know, this one has been overdone, but I got super-caffeinistic till this jest stream on a roll was.
Lumbar, ilial, thoracical discs frayed,
Lumbar, ilial, thoracical discs frayed.

Slip. . .
Condition when a neural
Pathway once open closes.
Analgesia's what I must
Have--give a whole ten doses.

Lumbar, ilial, thoracical discs frayed,
Lumbar, ilial, thoracical discs frayed.

My sacroiliac is weak,
I'm feeling really bad.
My pill-stingy back man needs peek
With resonance and rads.

It hurts so much, my vision's blurred
And pain shoots to my toes.
"Manage pain," the physician purred;
I punched him in the nose. Blow!

I cringe at Pilates chicks
In thoracic-bent poses.
Analgesia's what I must
Have--alright, then, five doses!

Lumbar, ilial, thoracical X-rayed,
Lumbar, ilial, thoracical displayed.

So he opines: decline the curls
Until my spine's unbent.
I tried to take a walk one day;
I was, in no time, spent.

A doob of marijuana. . .
Then had needles stuck in me.
I had the stabbed steel twirled, and Zen--
I think they nicked my chi! "Ow!!"

A lumbar encumbrance this
Situation imposes.
Analgesia's what I must
Have--no less then four doses!!

'Em so Demerol and Halidol I take,
Rum, Haloperidol and crawl like a snake.

Don't know how my back came undone,
But then again, I may.
I summon memories
Of the serpentine game I'd play.
Should have acted more carefully,
Could have caused sore-back strife:

I had played Twister with a girl
Whose lithe spine curls, my wife.

I couldn't sing the "lumbar...." lines without biting my own tongue off, John....but another JAB syllabletastic effort. 555

Syllabistical, maybe? OK, now I am beginning see that the lyric sheet you use doesn't provide one more chorus, hence the last chorus missing here. It just leaves one hanging for a whizbang ending.

Thanks, Kristoff, Agrimorfee--you're right about the lyric sheet.

Someone, I don't remember who, did a SupermanHasFragileWristsFromOsteoporosis parody to this tune. That has got to be the ultimate medical take on the main line, but this was pretty good too. I'm taking off for the missed and it being a bit eery, but still 444.

Yep, last chorus is missing but you did a great job catching the internal rhymes of the verses so a set of 5s here.

OK! Here's the final chorus: "She's SuperCalisthenticTwistingSexBeastThralledByHoses. . . ."
John Barry - January 31, 2006 - Report this comment
Oops! The final chorus above goes with the "Al's Café" version. The final chorus for "Superannuated" is: "These SuperannuatedLyricsExpediteHypnosis. . . ."
