Medic Christmas Carols

  1. I was asked by my hubby (who is a paramedic) to write a song to the tune of "Ring Christmas Bells" because he heard a funny on having to do with Burger King (which cracked me up)...So I wrote one about him being a paramedic, and one for me being a geriatric nurse. Here goes..LOL! (He works for a company called Metro west ambulance..that may help to know..LOL).

    A Metro West Christmas Carol
    (to the tune of "Ring Christmas Bells)

    I work at Metro West, I drive an ambulance

    It really goes fast.

    I get the calls and go, with my kits in tow,

    Lights and sirens show!

    Would you like a morphine drip with that?

    Would you like a morphine drip with that?

    Oops DNR, Oops DNR, Oops DNR, we've gone too far.

    Little old lady falls, and code one calls, and some dude that can not poo!

    Drunks always fighting you, saying "I've only had two", oh watch out he's gonna spew!

    Would you like a morphine drip with that?

    Would you like a morphine drip with that?

    Wait for the code.

    He's gonna code.

    Flat line here goes,

    On with the code...

    *Zap gotta live, Zap gotta live, Zap gotta live, Zap gotta live.

    I work at Metro West,I drive an ambulance

    It really goes fast.

    *Zap gotta live, Zap gotta live, Zap gotta live, Zap gotta live.


    Geriatric Nursing Carol
    (to the tune of "Ring Christmas Bells")

    I work in a nursing home, with folks so accident prone,

    SNAP there goes a hip...

    Bed sores, a stuffed up colin, neb for a puffer,

    And a short of breath.



    Call in the nurse, and call her STAT...

    Skin tears, falls, and an O2 Sat.

    Oops DNR, where's the DNR, no DNR, find that DNR!

    Accidents with little scooters, fixing sore pooters, avoiding tooters!

    Colace and enema's, dig and warfin draws, and trimming thick nail claws!

    Call in the nurse, and call her STAT...

    Skin tears, falls, and an O2 Sat.

    Oh he's turning blue, She's gonna spew

    He's gotta poo, admit the new...

    I work in a nursing home, with folks so accident prone,

    SNAP there goes a hip...

    Call in the nurse, and call her STAT...

    Skin tears, falls, and an O2 Sat.



    Have fun with this folks...the material is just too great!!!!!!!!! Add on!!! LOL!!!!! Get those creative juices flowin!!!!!!!! :chuckle

    I think these songs are hilarious. They give us an outlet to the real stress of the job. Saw something similar on the psychiatric nurses forum about different songs at christmas. If you get a chance, check it out!

    My answering machine message!!!!!!!!
    (To somewhat of the tune of "Dashing through the Snow")

    Happy holidays to you all
    I am sorry that I missed your call
    But I was stuck on my office phone
    With a doc who wouldn't leave me alone. Ha ha ha ha

    Had to run to 402
    For a guy that simply could not poo.
    And trot on up to 308
    For a woman who had a tummy ache.

    And if I wasn't busy enough
    I had a guy with an achy cough,
    A gal with a fever, and a foley cath leak
    A guy with a boil, and a dementa pt went tweek

    Then a code blue puffer, and a guy with gas...
    A skin tear and a inflamed a**
    Orders non stop on my office fax
    And our lobby tv is stuck on PAX!

    So again, happy holidays to you all
    And if I tend to miss your call
    But remember I will try to get right back
    If you have the kindness to give me some slack!

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!!

    Bed alarms ring...are you list'n
    IN the unit, foley's glisten
    What a beautiful sight, working Christmas tonight...
    Being a nurse on lovely Christmas eve!

    Gone away, is the doctor...
    Here to stay..is his intern
    He doesn't know much
    And uses us as a crutch
    Its great being a nurse on Christmas eve!

    In the unit we can build a snow man
    Out of kerlix, and some paper tape and cups!
    We'll have fun with our Mr. Snowman
    Till we get caught by our charge nurse!

    Later on, we'll perspire
    As we run around all wired
    On cookies and sweets, and all other treats
    As we complain about our weight and going to the gym!

    In the unit we can build another snow man
    With a texas cath and a blown up condom too
    We are getting gitty, and sleep deprived now...
    And of course just then a code in 302!

    But life goes on...don't we know it
    Working holidays is a bummer
    We daydream and sigh
    And at times even cry
    Isn't it great to work on Christmas eve...
    Being a nurse on lovely Christmas eveeeeeee!!!!!!!

    SING IT AGAIN...

    Ba Ba ba ba...ISN"T IT GREAT TO BE A NURSE ON CHRISTMAS EVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS to all my nursing buds working Christmas!!!!!!!!!

    LOVED IT !

    We use to do that too when I was a medic and then sing them at the Christmas parties... most were unit specific

    One of them was to Winter Wonderland and part of it that wasn't specific was

    Sirens blare ! are you listening
    in the rig's nitroglycerin
    a Code 55 we'll bring back alive
    rushin' doin' 90 all the way

    Remember in the snow yo can't defib them
    if yo do you'll look just like a tree with lights
    and if you do you know well go a give ya
    some bicarb and some lidocaine tonight
