Vet Clinic Blues

So, here’s one for the practitioners and their staff. This one really needs no explanation, especially for those who’ve spent even a little time in the veterinary profession. Credits are as follows: Musical arrangement and production – the ever-popular Rick Barclay; vocals – the ever-impeccable Paul Needles; lyrics – the ever-average Dean Scott. Enjoy!

Lyrics

I’ma gonna raise a fuss, I’m gonna raise a holler,
‘Bout workin’ ’til I’m old just to try to earn a dollar,
Well, worryin’ ’bout the bills, taxes, and staff,
Every day’s a little harder tryin’ to find a laugh,
Sometimes I wonder what I’m gonna do,
‘Cause there ain’t no cure for the Vet Clinic Blues!
.
I was told as a kid vets don’t make the money,
Thought they were kidding, now it’s not so funny,
Six days a week, I’m a goin’ to work,
If another client argues I’m gonna go berserk,
Sometimes I wonder what I’m gonna do,
‘Cause there ain’t no cure for the Vet Clinic Blues!
.
Internet ‘scripts are gonna put me in a coma,
Parking lot docs have those discount diplomas,
Well, non-profit groups are all about the giving,
Every day’s a little harder tryin’ to make a living,
Sometimes I wonder what I’m gonna do,
‘Cause there ain’t no cure for the Vet Clinic Blues!
.
My vacation is going to a conference,
Gonna catch up on my sleep, gonna barely be conscious,
I called my VMA and they said, “Woah!
“We’d love to help you Doc, but you gotta send more dough.”
Sometimes I wonder what I’m gonna do,
‘Cause there ain’t no cure for the Vet Clinic Blues!
