The Lyrics

A mental health worker's infatuated new girlfriend, with her mind full of stereotypes, pays him a surprise visit at the hospital... not for the first time.
I have often walked
by this ward before,
and I know I've never, ever seen you bored before.
Will I ever see
what you think of me
being here at the place where you work?

You had hardly thought
of this when in school,
yet I see that you decided it was kinda cool.
Now enchantment pours from behind locked doors,
being here at the place where you work!

And oh, the frightening feeling,
just to know what dangers are there;
the overpowering feeling
when someone manic or psychotic pulls your hair?

They may stop and stare,
catatonically,
still, I know there's nowhere else that you would rather be!
Let the needles fly,
I don't care, 'cuz I'm
watching you at the place,
with your unblemished face,
watching you at the place where you work!

What is with the troll going around giving every new parody submission all 1's for no good reason?

Probably because he's tired of the new parodies coming up every single week.

I liked this! Unfettered unobombing has been a long-standing problem here, to the point where the ratings don't really matter anymore. It's sad, I know.
