Music Monday – Living With A Hernia by Weird Al Yankovic

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme created and hosted by Drew@TheTattooedBookGeek as an opportunity to share a favourite music video.

This week I’ve chosen Living With a Hernia by Weird Al Yankovic, a fantastic parody of Living in America by James Brown. I was actually looking for a different video to share, but when I saw this one I couldn’t help but share it.

[Intro]
Ow!
Help me out, dig

[Verse 1]
All I do is grunt and groan, hurts me to walk anywhere
Went to see my physician, Dr. Jones
He took my trousers off, told me to cough
Doctor says there ain’t nothin’ to discuss
He tells me any day, I might have to wear a truss

[Chorus 1]
Living with a hernia, all the time, such aggravation
Living with a hernia, gonna be my ruination
Living with a hernia, got to have an operation
Feel so old

[Verse 2]
Too much bad pain, good gawd, drives me insane
Can’t run, barely crawl, got a bulge in my intestinal wall
Walk real funny, bless my soul, can’t play tennis
And it’s hard to bowl
You can’t even do the splits now, say it
Better call it quits now, now I’m sick of all this dancin’ anyhow

[Chorus 2]
Living with a hernia, hurts me bad in a tender location
Living with a hernia, had enough humiliation
Living with a hernia, got to have an operation
I live with a hernia, can’t get up, can’t bend over
Now I live with a hernia, wait a minute

[Bridge]
You may not be familiar with the common types
Of hernias that you could get
So just settle down, let me clue you in there’s incomplete
Epigastric, bladder, strangulated, lumbar hernia, Richter’s hernia
Obstructed, inguinal and direct

[Chorus 3]
Living with a hernia rupture
I said it’s causin’ me such irritation
Living with a hernia, have to have my medication
Living with a hernia,
I feel bad
