The Lyrics

Body'd been ailin'
Was feelin' worse everyday
Good health a' failin'
It caused my doctor to say
"Step on this scale, and
We're gonna' give you a weigh..
Might need Cat Scan !"

My weight was droppin'
Down about five pounds or so
Told me to stop in,
And check again, tomorrow
Then, when I popped in,
I was another pound low,
Time for Cat Scan !

High anxiety,
Hits me, while I'm lookin' at that Scan !
Low self control,
Can't do a hole, easy as an old rat can !
So claustrophobic
So sick, I just jump up out and scat, Man !
Yeah, a chicken, I am,
I scram far away from that Cat Scan !

In such a hurry,
No time for closin' the door
Told Doctor Murray
Self treatments, I'm goin' for
Weight ain't no worry,
I'm gonna' just eat some more,
Can't stand Cat Scans

Your `Computed Axially Tremendously' hilarious spoofin' is boundless and it never wanes / You've boosted my kV, mAs and tickled my funny bone in coronal, sagittal AND axial planes!
