The Hospital Mash

 

I was working on the wards, late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For the patient from his bed began to rise
And suddenly, to my surprise,

He did the Mash! He did the Hospital Mash!
He did the Mash! It was a Rounding Smash!
He did the Mash! The Nurses caught on in a Flash!
They did the Mash! They did the Hospital Mash!

From the student lounge in the second floor, east
To the cafeteria where everyone feasts
They all came running, as if towards a code
To get a jolt from my electrodes

They did the Mash! They did the Hospital Mash!
They did the Mash! It was a Call Night Smash!
They did the Mash! The Patients caught on in a Flash!
They did the Mash! They did the Hospital Mash!

Out of the speakers, the voices did ring
Seems they were troubled by just one thing
Instead of calling a code, they called out this:
“What is this madness? Have you forgotten The Twist?”

But it’s the Mash! It’s now the Hospital Mash!
It’s now the Mash! It’s a Triage Smash!
It’s now the Mash! It caught on in a Flash!
It’s now the Mash! It’s the Hospital Mash!

Now everything’s cool, it’s just a Med Student Band
And the Hospital Mash is the hit of the land
For you, the healthy, this mash was meant, too
When you get to the door, tell them Beatrice sent you

Then you can Mash! You can do the Hospital Mash!
And do the Mash! Do the Medical Smash!
Then you can Mash! You’ll catch on in a Flash!
And you can Mash! You can Hospital Mash!

Ah, ooooooooh! Ah, ah, ah, ooooooh!
