"Like A Surgeon" as written by and Yankovic/steinberg/kelly....
I finally made it through med school
Somehow I made it through
I'm just an intern
I still make a mistake or two

I was last in my class
Barely passed at the institute
Now I'm trying to avoid, yah I'm trying to avoid
A malpractice suit

Hey, like a surgeon
Cuttin' for the very first time
Like a surgeon
Organ transplants are my line

Better give me all your gause nurse
This patient's fading fast
Complications have set in
Don't know how long he'll last

Let me see, that I.V.
Here we go time to operate
I'll pull his indsides out, pull his insides out
And see what he ate

Like a surgeon, hey
Cuttin' for the very first time
Like a surgeon
Here's a waiver for you to sign

Woe, woe, woe

It's a fact I'm a quack
The disgrace of the A.M.A.
'Cause my patients die, yah my patients die
Before they can pay

Like a surgeon, hey
Cuttin' for the very first time
Like a surgeon
Got your kidneys on my mind

Like a surgeon, ooh like a surgeon
When I reach inside
With my scalpel, and my forceps, and re-tractors
Oh oh, oh oh, woe, oh

Ooh baby, yeah
I can hear your heartbeat
For the very last time

    General CommentIm turning 13! But I usually know which songs are parodies and which ones aren't, but oh well.....

    WEIRD AL FIRST! This is the only song that Al made from a suggestion..... Apparently Madonna was walking down the street and wondered aloud "I wonder if Weird Al will make a parody of Like a Virgin and call it Like A Surgeon"

    A friend heard her and passed it on to Al. Al usually doesn't take suggestions, but he did that time because it was a good idea and it was suggested by Madonna....

    General CommentCan we stop with saying the song is a parody? We know more than half of Al's songs are parodies. You do not need to inform us.
