Scut monkey

Once upon a time, in an old building that used to serve as a nursing home, more than ten of us would cram into a small room, pretending to be musos, plucking at plastic guitars, and making a lot of noise. That town was always chilly, but the room was always several degrees warmer – it’s true, we really did check the temperature difference once! Code Monkey was one of the songs on our regular playlist. My friend has creatively transformed the song into one that aptly describes our first year at work. Thanks for letting me share it here, we should all get together and sing this song with the new lyrics someday :)

Scut monkey

Scut monkey get up get coffee,
Scut monkey go to job.
Scut monkey have six hour ward round
With awful registrar Bob.
Bob say Scut monkey very diligent, but his memory stink;
Why he not know this patient’s MCV?
What do scut monkey think?
Scut monkey think maybe registrar wanna check each damn test result himself!
Scut monkey just keep that inside
Scut monkey has feelings to hide.

Scut monkey like flashback,
Scut monkey like GPs with a clue.
Scut monkey very simple doc,
With big hatred for his pager tone,
But scut monkey like you…

Scut monkey now on night duty;
He not get to sleep at all.
His pager just keep on beeping:
“Bed 13; he have fall”.
Nurse say bed 15 has high BSL
“Bed 4 cannot pee”
“Why you not give her haloperidol?”
“2 needs new IV”.
Scut monkey have long night doing busywork,
He sit down to eat some toast,
But pager don’t give him no rest
Scut monkey ain’t feeling the best…

Scut monkey like flashback,
Scut monkey like GPs with a clue.
Scut monkey very simple doc
With big hatred for his pager tone,
But scut monkey like you…

Scut monkey’s long shift is over
Time now to depart
But nurses just called a MET call
Pain in someone’s heart
Much rather head home and eat takeaway
See you and chat
But monkey have responsibility
No chance for that
Scut monkey think some day he be consultant
Time for food and sleep and love
Scut monkey just working for now
Scut monkey say some day, some how

Scut monkey like flashback,
Scut monkey like GPs with a clue.
Scut monkey very simple doc
With big hatred for his pager tone,
But scut monkey like you…
