A Heart and Pancreas for Christmas

While out shopping with April over the weekend, I heard the song “I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” playing over the sound system in one of the shopping centers.  It reminded me of the parody I wrote last year, so I’m sharing it again.  Enjoy!

I Want A Heart and Pancreas for Christmas

I want a heart and pancreas for Christmas
Only a heart and pancreas will do
Don’t want a pill, to make me a happy boy
I want a heart and pancreas that’ll work and not annoy.

I want a heart and pancreas for Christmas
I don’t think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
He won’t have to use our dirty chimney flue
Just bring them through the front door,
that’s the easy thing to do

I can see me now on Christmas morning,
creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise
when I open up my eyes
to see an organ toting hero standing there

I want a heart and pancreas for Christmas
Only a heart and pancreas will do
No blood pressure cuffs, no glucometeruses
I only like hearts and pancreases
And hearts and pancreases like me too

Mom says the organs could pep me up, but then
Doctor could say rejection and I’d be screwed again.

(Short Music Interlude)

There’s lots of room for them in my chest and abdomen
I’d give up anything if they’d work properly again.

I can see me now on Christmas morning,
creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise
when I open up my eyes
to see an organ toting hero standing there

I want a heart and pancreas for Christmas
Only a heart and pancreas will do
No blood pressure cuffs, no glucometeruses
I only like hearts and pancreases
And hearts and pancreases like me too
