DAY AT THE NURSING HOME
by Bob Harrison
July 28, 1998
Hello, Nurse, Iím here to see my cousin,
I think his room is very close to that
of Luke the Lid.
Hi, Sid, Iím your cousin, here to see
you once agin.
Here, let me wipe that bit of dribble
from your chin.
Whoís the old guy I see thatís cominí
down the path?
I do believe thatís Myron Howard, my
God, he could use a bath!
Is that Ron Martini over there, the
one thatís tryiní to sell his shoes?
Heís quite a sight but all those wrinkles
sure give me the blues.
Here, take this tissue, Sid, youíre
startiní to drool once more,
Is that Roger Ramjet I see cominí through
Where Roger is, Iím sure that old Cool
Bob is near,
I hear him now, heís askiní Ramjet
for a beer.
Thereís Moose and Roy, boy, donít they
look a sight!
If Royís here, I guess weíll see Daisey
Why, there she is; what a purty sight
Shucks, she donít look a day past seventy
Thereís a few more guys I hope to see
Mike Maloneyís one and of course I
canít forget Rankoon.
SPC is special too, and I canít forget
Hey, Sid, wake up, itís time to take
There goes Ramjet running at full speed
across the lawn,
And here comes Cool in hot pursuit
and neither has his clothes on,
I guess thatís how it was when they
served on submarines,
Come on, Sid, letís go before you pee
upon your jeans.
Well, itís good to see the old gangís
still around and doiní well,
Theyíre not as spry now but everyone
of them is full of Hell,
Sid, olí Cuz, Iíve gotta go now, back
to my Cloud up in the sky,
Lookiní forward to the day when all
the crew is with me by and by.
