Are GP dreams so hard to beat?
Every patient that I ever meet
I long to see them, see them face to face
Cos as a GP I’m ideally placed

I’m gonna consult, gonna use techniques
Get GP kicks right through the week

To understand them, my heart it yearns
All their ideas and their concerns
And I feel a deep frustration
‘Till I know their expectations

I’m gonna listen, gonna let you speak
Get GP kicks right through the week, all right

When the CQC inspector calls
Everybody briefly keeps the rules
And so from him at his insistence
I’m glad to keep my social distance

For a rating, one of good, I’ll seek
Get GP kicks right through the week

With too much work and too little time
And with criticism on the climb
I’ll see the patients that I really should
And try to see in that there’s something good

And though the future, though the future’s bleak
Get GP kicks right through the week, all right

And though the future, though the future’s bleak
Get GP kicks right through the week, all right

After ‘The Undertones’.

A rendition of this song can be found on my Facebook page. It’s probably best avoided.
