Leadings

Hi everyone! Well, this only works if you know the Beatles song "Baby, You Can Drive My Car". I just couldn't resist making up my own words to the tune of this old song. So without further ado, here goes:

Beep beep, beep beep, yeah!
The lab tech came in just to stick me
And he said "Patient, can't you see,
this is the Cadillac of beds
so you can drive, plus take your meds!"

Nurses you can drive my bed!
I'm so glad that I'm not dead.
Nurses you can drive my bed
And nurses I love you.

This bed's engine just purrs along.
And it is really very strong.
Things are not always what they seem.
It takes the curves just like a dream.

Nurses you can drive my bed!
I'll keep looking straight ahead.
Nurses you can drive my bed.
And nurses I love you!
Beep beep, yeah!


Now I know you are wondering what on earth this is all about, so I will tell you. When the lab guy came in to stick me, he asked me if I knew how special my bed was. I didn't. The bed is really a car. It has an engine on it so that it can be driven down the halls, and it slows on turns. No more heavy pushing of those big beds anymore, will wonders ever cease? Being led around was never easier!


"The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters,
He restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
Your rod and your staff, they comfort me."
Psalm 23:1,4

You are so clever. Will you be writing song lyrics now for all the big stars? ha ha ha
Pretty cool bed, amazing the things they can come up with

What next? The beds in the hospital here are very nice,but I am sure they don't drive.Unfortunately,no matter how good the bed,home is always better than the hospital.take care my friend,and get back to good health.

Annie said...

Love it, you clever girl. And his story totally relaxed you before he stuck you. Right?? LOL

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Ha Ha----I've heard it all now... Neither George nor I have EVER heard of such a thing.... My My---I dare say that our little hospital here in the boonies in TN won't have beds like that.... Holy Cow---for some reason that just made me laugh and laugh....

Next thing we know, the doctors and nurses will all have an engine on them --so that they can be driven from room to room.... ha ha ha

Hugs
Betsy

Wow! Where were these beds when I was working in the ICU? Fun post Ginny!

Glenda said...

You are so creative, Ginny . .. even when you are sick!! What a bed! But I'm glad you're back in your own bed - and I have an idea you are, too!!

Doris Sturm said...

All I can say is that I'm glad you're back, Ginny - I hope you'll be doing better and better every day!

Karin said...

Great job on those lyrics! Those modern pieces of equipment just make my jaw drop! I do recall the beds of the 60s and these modern ones are unbelievable. Just good to hear you're feeling better!

srp said...

So glad you are better and at least at home. What a LOT of glass... glad our weather wasn't as bad as in the midwest. Take care of yourself, follow the directions of the doctors and rest!!

Doris Sturm said...

p.s.

those trees at and in Banks Lake (on my blog today) are Bald Cypress or Swamp Cypress...I love them!

Mildred said...

You are so very creative, Ginny! How cute the words are to your version! Hoping that each day finds you better and stronger. Have a safe and restful weekend and God bless.

S. Etole said...

you obviously haven't lost your sense of humor ...!

From the Kitchen said...

You really are back! You mentioned that you couldn't get "over the mountain" so is that bed in King's Daughters?

Best,
Bonnie

Deborah said...

OK, Now I have that song stuck in my head!!LOL I will probably be humming it the rest of the night!
That is something about that bed. I suppose it helps the aids a lot pushing beds must be hard work.
Have a nice weekend Ginny. I hope Phil is resting too!
xxoo
Deborah

Regina said...

This was hilarious, well I can only wonder what they stuck you with (lol)..I think this was clever and cute..talk about making the most of a difficult situation! I heard you were having meals brought in..(how sweet)..I'd make you something too (hugs)

SquirrelQueen said...

Love your lyrics Ginny, I was reading them along with the music in my head. A drivable bed? What will they think of next?

If enough of the patients find out how to work those beds I wonder if they will have races?
"Coming around the third hallway turn, it's Ginny in the lead ....."

Nature Rambles said...

We're WAY behind here!! What a bed! And I love the way you changed the lyrics. So clever!!

Hope you and Phil have a much-deserved peaceful weekend!

Joanne said...

Hey I think I feel a hit! you'll be on i tunes before you know it!!! Very funny! Blessings, Joanne

reanaclaire said...

wow..Ginny.. you are really cool! Resting on a bed that can be driven around.. :)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Love your song! A driving bed, huh? Impressive - and so - Bedknobs and Broomsticks!

Lucy (aka rharper) said...

I don't even remember that song and I thought I was a pretty good Beatle fan. Now I gotta go to Youtube to find that song.

SO GLAD you are feeling better and back with us.

Shug said...

You are feeling better, I can tell!
Love the new song....One thing for sure, if you have to be in the hospital, you might as well have the cadillac of beds...
Continue to feel better and drink lots of water!!!!!!
Hope you have a fabulous weekend....
Shug

Sandra said...

must have been a special hospital, our hospitals here have the old fashioned ugly and very miserable to lay in beds. the mattress are killer, the chairs in the rooms are horrible for people with bad backs. this bed looks really cool. glad you had it. so now you are a song writer. Well Bless your heart... ha ha on that one. dont know the song so could not sing, but love the words and no one would want me to sing it anyway unless they wanted to torture someone. ha ha
sooooo happy you are bacccccccccccck in the saddle again. i do know that tune.

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

I am surprised by all the nice, new stuff that is in hospitals now :)

Carmi said...

When I was a child growing up in the hospital, beds were simple affairs. Now I know why a short stay in one can lead to a five- or six-figure bill :)

Glad you're home, and glad you're on your way back to good health. Praying for you...

RonJoe 'Geezer' said...

Maybe I can get one of those fancy beds to cruise around Walmart on?

God bless you Ginny and have a great Memorial Day weekend :-)

DawnTreader said...

Don't know the original lyrics but yours are great ;) I hope they aren't thinking they'll be able to tell patients to drive their own bed to the lab or whatever... (LOL) When I was in hospital for surgery five years ago, when they took me back to the ward from post-op, I had to tell them to drive slowly because I was getting nauseous when they ran too fast!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Ginny, Well, you are quite the creative gal. I too love the 23rd. Psalm. Great post today! Enjoy the evening and have a super Sunday. You continue in my prayers.

George said...

Will wonders never cease? I guess your hospital really has gone high-tech.

Ann said...

I don't mind being in hospital. The nurses wait on you hand and foot.

Glad you are home.

Bobbi said...

LOL! Good Ginny!!

Chatty Crone said...

I have never heard of a motorized bed - will wonders ever cease? And God will be with us always.

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

Oh and bed pans are so lovely....

I so pray you are doing better and on your way to feeling better. Diverticulitis can be painful that is forsure.

Praise to the lord for his comfort in our daily life.

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

I so love your song, Now I will be hummin' that the rest of the day.

I can just see it now...beds you can drive...patients will be flying down the hall...one more thing for the admins to buy for the hospitals.... traffic lights and horns for the beds.

I so hope you are feeling better.
