The Amateur Ambulanceman

.and all kudos to the GENUINE paramedics, for whom no praise is too great...a wee ditty from Blind Boy Flugga. Based on real events. Allegedly.


There’s a blue light in my brain
There’s a siren in my mind
You may think that I’m strange
Making these noises all the time
Try to understand
I’m an ambulanceman

I have practised my first aid
On my sister’s Sindy dolls
They were in a dreadful state
But I attended to them all
Amputated hands
I’m an ambulanceman

I’m an ambulanceman
I’m concerned about your health
I’ve got an old Transit van
I converted it myself
I won’t leave you for dead
I’m an ambulanceman inside my head

I lurk in laybys listening for emergency calls
And practice artifical respiration
I use my inner arm and sometimes I use my wrist
Though I dislike the taste of perspiration

I have some old syringes
I have boiled them in a pot
And if you get some twinges
I’ll inject you in a shot
With some Canestan
I’m an ambulanceman
