Story

This is a parody of Lloyd Price's "Personality." This was written in various doctor waiting rooms, where it was common for me to wait for 2 hours past my appointment time before seeing anyone. Then I was usually brought back to an over-lit room, given a large paper towel to wear, and sat freezing my rear off for another half hour or longer. This is not karaoke, by the way- we used a real band (The Bob Malone Band) and recorded the whole thing from scratch in Hollywood. I've been to almost all these ologists, except the gastro, oncologist and Proctologist(!).

Sittin' In The Waiting Room

(Carla Ulbrich)

July 31, 2004

lyrics, Carla Ulbrich (music composed by Llyod Price)

This was written in various doctors' waiting rooms, where it was common for me to wait for 2 hours past my appointment time before seeing anyone. Then I was usually brought back to an over-lit room, given a large paper towel to wear, and sat freezing my rear off for another half hour or longer.

Over and over
I make an appointment with you
over and over
You're not sure what to do
over and over
you refer me to somebody new
So over and over
I'm sittin' in the waiting room
 
I'm at the rheumatologist nephrologist
Immunologist oncologist
Radiologist hematologist
They really need some new magazines in here
So over and over
I wish I'd brought something to do
'Cause I'm here over and over
Sittin' in the waiting room

I'm at the pulmonologist opthamologist
Pathologist gastroenterologist
Neurologist cardiologist
He didn't even listen to my heart
So over and over
I'll be a fool if I do
Just sit there over and over
In their waiting room

So over and over
This is what I've been through
Over and over
I tell 'em that it just won't do
I told them over and over
I'm not sitting here like a fool
So they took me over
To another waiting room

I'm at the gynecologist whoops
Phlebotomist proctologist
Psychologist urologist 
I waited for 2 hours
And Then I saw him walking to his car

Office hours were over
They were over
I knew what I had to do
I ran him over and over
Left him in the waiting room
