A Parody Song in Honor of WDD


(Dear Readers, note that "'betes" is pronounced BEETS, not BEE-TEES or BEE-TUS in this case...)

It's World Diabetes Day. What are you doing? What am I doing? Well, I guess I've screwed up NaBloPoMo this year by missing a day due to internet problems. Poo. Instead, I will post a couple of times today for this special occasion.

Right now I've decided to provide you with a parody to get you psyched up! Check out the original "We've Got the Beat" by the Go-Gos, then feel free to add in the following lyrics...

See the kids all dosin' insulin
They eat breakfast, do it all again
Checkin' glucose--is it high or low?
They take it in stride...

They got the 'betes
They got the 'betes
They got the 'betes
Type 1!
They got the 'betes

See the people frettin' over food
Exercising 'cuz it does them good
Take metformin or some other stuff
To get control

They got the 'betes
They got the 'betes
They got the 'betes
Type 2!
They got the 'betes

Feeling cranky when we're low or high
Gotta carry bags with our supplies
But we're happy, always on the go
We're gettin' control

We got the 'betes
We got the 'betes
We got the 'betes
Yeah
We got the 'betes

(*claps and such*)

Everybody check out your feet
Don't want complications from 'betes
Count carbs-but have fun
We still gotta live

We got the 'betes

We got the 'betes

etc....

NOW JUST THE BLOGGERS SING! NOW JUST THE PARENTS! WHEE! Happy World Diabetes Day, everyone! More musings to come today.
