lyrics

DESPAIR RESISTANT

how are you and is there anything for you that i could do?
would you like a drink of juice? would you like a brew?
should I make it milk and two? should i take you to the loo?
take you through and wait for you to urinate or take a poo?
or change your nappy? strangely happy
to be doing it it's true enough
involves a lot of stuff with poo on it
and when it's spew, it's rough
as anything, it's many things
but there's one thing that it's not
and that’s the sort of job that makes you more unhappy with your lot
I’ve got my youth I’ve got my health I’ve got an unfractured sense of self
I’ve got my faculties intact and if I’m attacked defence as well
my sense of smell's doing swell it's undiminished
when beginning a task no need to ask I’ll tell you when I’ve finished
don't lose patience with my patients though my patience they are trying
constant tissues I’m supplying almost every want and need
I’m satisfying nurse them when they're dying
comfort families when they're crying sighing as I watch them fade away then I say

I’m the despair resistant care assistant
fair to say my care’s consistent
distantly I feel it wear me down
cos they're persistent
I’m the despair resistant care assistant
fair to say my care’s consistent
distantly I feel it wear me down

behaviour inappropriate and aimless
behaviour inappropriate and shameless
the old folks roam around the old folks home
behaviour inappropriate but blameless

you down with OAPs?

Yeah you know me!
