LyricsEdit

Oh I could’ve worked on a research staff.
I could’ve been stationed on the sea
Or dug a cozy niche in diseases of the rich
but that wasn’t good enough for me, oh no
I was tired of the land, of diseases that were bland
and some troubles that I didn’t care to face
Now I wake each morning to the intercoms warning
and I wonder why I ever went to space

Oh there’s aches and pains and wounds and sprains
And a space born plague or two
So I’ll do my best. I’ll run another test
And pour myself another cup of brew.
Thank you.

Now I serve a starships crew with a million things to do
and a headache that I really can’t afford
And some crewman’s got a pet that I haven’t studied yet.
Well at least I must admit I’m never bored.
Half the calls I receive Mayo Clinic won’t believe.
I get (*) on Altair Five
I get fungus that eats glass. I get boils on the ass
and I somehow get the crew back home alive

Oh there’s aches and pains and wounds and sprains
And a space born plague or two
So I’ll do my best. I’ll run another test
And pour myself another cup of brew
Thank you. Have one too

I get psychos running loose. I get alien (*)
and hallucinogenic mists upon the breeze
I get viro-plagues from Mars and neurotics from the stars.
Tell me what am I supposed to do with these?
But when the battle’s won, when the Russian worry’s done,
and I’ve got some time to wonder why I’m here
When I weigh the life that’s mine with the one I left behind,
what the hell I guess I’ll stay another year.

Oh there’s aches and pains and wounds and sprains
And a space born plague or two
So I’ll do my best. I’ll run another test
And pour myself another cup of brew
Thank you. Have one too.
Don't mind if I do.
