The Old Lady Who Had No Heart
There was an old lady who was sixty plus,
And one night she started to scream and to cuss,
She threw up her hands and she looked all around,
No one listened so she threw herself on the ground.
The ambulance came and they took her away,
Couldn’t find a heart though they tried as they may,
She was at the hospital and gave them all hell,
She still had no heart though she thought she was swell.
She ordered all the doctors to stand up straight,
And bow in her presence and don’t be so late,
She told all the nurses that they better behave,
Or she’d scream some more or she’d rant and she’d rave.
They gave her an x-ray and many MRIs.
Couldn’t find her heart though they tried and they tried,
So they sent her home -- they couldn’t take her no more,
She’s on the Internet now and says she knows the score.
