BAGGY WHITE COATS

Early morning taking bloods

Thinking we looked cool in scrubs

Spot tests in anatomy

Lectures in virology

Teaching rounds consultant led

Stood around the patient’s bed

Asked what we could not recall

Made to look a silly fool

.

Oh what fun we had

But did it really turn out bad

Learning at med school

How best to bend not break the rules

Oh what fun we had

But at the time it seemed so bad

Trying different ways

To make a difference to our…

.

Hours spent on labour ward

Trying not to look too bored

Four foot primip Mum to be

Not much chance of an NVD

Incidence and prevalence

Being taught the difference

Epidemiology

Always was a mystery

.

Oh what fun we had

But did it really turn out bad

Learning at med school

How best to bend not break the rules

Oh what fun we had

But at the time it seemed so bad

Trying different ways

To make a difference to our…

.

Folk in pain from retention

Wanting speedy attention

Catheters brought quick relief

Gratitude beyond belief

Clerking patients whilst on take

Trying hard to stay awake

Through the night ‘till break of day

Post take ward round’s on its way

.

Oh what fun we had

But did it really turn out bad

Learning at med school

How best to bend not break the rules

Oh what fun we had

But at the time it seemed so bad

Trying different ways

To make a difference to our…

.

Long white coat and stethoscope

Oxford Handbook our one hope

Telling us when we’d no clue

What it is that Doctors do

Patients who were feeling icky

Venous access proving tricky

Siting venflons back of hand

Seldom went as well as planned

.

Oh what fun we had

But did it really turn out bad

Learning at med school

How best to bend not break the rules

Oh what fun we had

But at the time it seemed so bad

Trying different ways

To make a difference to our grades

.

Baggy white coats, baggy white coats,

Baggy white coats, baggy white coats,

Baggy white coats, baggy white coats,

Baggy white coats, baggy white coats

.

After Madness
