Lyrics To House Fan Song

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2007 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Compare "Every class period, I will tell you a lie" to "Cattywumpus". The former I don't mind nearly so much. This brings up nagging ethics debates I've had recently with disagreeable people and new friends, and I have to think about it more.

Another source of truth/ethics edge cases is, or was, House, M.D. Did you know that Leonard wrote and we recorded a little song about that show? Here you go. Recently John S. requested the lyrics, so I listened again -- it holds up well! -- and transcribed.

I have consumed too much of a heavy metal
I harbor an obscure parasite in my small intestine
   (Down by the pool)
Every 15 minutes my condition worsens
   (Commercial for car)
Because I lied about practices some viewers may find disturbing
   (Discretion advised)

Only one man has the basic medical knowledge
Only one man can perform the simple procedure
Only one man can treat me with such contempt

House, M.D.
House, M.D.
Fix what's wrong with me
Fix what's wrong with me
   (Gregory House, M.D.)
Fix what's wrong with me

(House, M.D.) 

House is on some sort of winter interregnum, as is Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. However, tonight new episodes of Uncle Morty's Dub Shack start playing on ImaginAsian. UMDS will probably make me laugh more than Studio 60 does anyway.
