The Lyrics

The 1st time I got my hip replaced, I didn't write any parodies about it. It never occurred to me. Now that I've had to get the other one replaced, the idea is coming to me. And, yes, in this community, we do call each other Hippies. I am now a Double Hippie. The hospital where this one was done is in Somerville.
(Instrumental opening)

There is a house in New Jersey
where I've got a replaced hip.
It could be the ruin of a middle-aged boy.
So God, don't let me slip.

My legs are badly swollen.
Can't wear my new blue jeans.
The hospitals can hear me groan
from Somerville to Queens.

Now the only thing a Hippie needs
is a portable fridge to stand
and a grabber stick to get what he needs
and a clear path to the can.

(Instrumental break)

Oh mothers, tell your children:
Arthritis is a trip
but someday you may find relief
in the House of the Replaced Hip.

Well, I've got foot on the carpet
the other foot on the bed
and I don't recommend this position to you
so remember just what I've said.

Well, there is a house in New Jersey
where I've got a replaced hip.
It could be the ruin of a middle-aged boy.
So God, don't let me slip.

(Instrumental Close)

Man, I'm gonna rue the day when I have to have joints replaced! Anyways, very nice take on the OS, and here's 555 grabber sticks for you. P.S., There are two really good covers of the OS, a rock version by Frijid Pink, and a disco version by HOT R.S.

My mother had hip replacement in her early 80s and it greatly improved her outlook. A few years before her surgery she was hit by a flu bug and when we tried to tell her she needed to go to a hospital, she said "Why bother?" ... The combination of flu and arthritis in the hip caused her to not want to go on living. Fortunately we got her thru that crisis and she lived for ten more years
