about

Music and laughter are wonderful way to get people’s attention and educate them about important issues. When things are learned with humor they are learned well. I have created these funny medical songs as a way of teaching some important messages in health care.

Dr. David Feinstein, an endocrinologist in Dallas Texas has had the song Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis on his website for years and the feedback he receives from his patients has been tremendous. Canadian Hypertension Education Program and Cancer Care Ontario have licensed the rights to use some of these songs for educational and promotion purposes.

We would be glad to provide these songs to any organizations that might wish to use them for marketing or education. Any enquiries regarding the licensing of these songs should be sent to administrator@melborins.com.

COLON CANCER CHECK

(Mel Borins/ Mitch Girio/ Sandy Buchman) (ALL RIGHTS RESERVED)

Get your butt to your Doc
And have yourself a talk
Get your butt to your Doc
And have yourself a talk
About the Colon Cancer Check

Call it poo, number 2, call it crap, call it anything you like
catch colon cancer early
It could save your life

If you’re between the age of 50 and 74
You should test every 2 years
Don’t wait anymore

Your Doc will tell you what to do with your poo
Your Doc will tell you what to do

You take your kit home and poo-ooo baby
And smear a bit onto the card
Close the flap and then you mail it, baby
The whole thing (really) ain’t that hard

9 out of 10 people can be cured, baby
A simple test can save the day (the crap kit can save your life)
Colon cancer can be beat-eat, baby
See your MD right away

Get your butt to your Doc
And have yourself a talk
Get your butt to your Doc
And have yourself a talk
Get your butt to your Doc
And have yourself a talk

Track Name: Hypertension
HYPERTENSION (ALL RIGHTS RESERVED)

(MEL BORINS/ MITCH GIRIO)

There’s a secret,
You’ve got a secret,
That your body’s not telling you.
Hypertension,
Did I mention,
A silent killer’s stalking you.
CHORUS
Your heart’s grown more than twice its size,
The pressure builds in the arteries in your eyes
What a strange surprise
When you realize you’ve died.

It’s not a joke,
When you have a stroke.

If your hand goes weak,
And you find it hard to speak,
You may be having a T.I.A.
If your head aches,
Then for heaven sakes,
Measure your blood pressure right away.
CHORUS
Your heart’s grown more than twice its size,
The pressure builds in the arteries in your eyes
What a strange surprise
When you realize you’ve died.
BRIDGE
Lose the weight,
Exercise,
Protect your kidneys and your eyes.
Halt the salt,
Trim the fat,
You don’t want a heart attack.

It’s not a joke,
When you croak.

Don’t forget to measure,
Your blood pressure,
It’s the only way to know if it’s high.
And if it’s raised,
Take pills each day,
You really don’t want to die.
CHORUS
Your heart’s grown more than twice its size,
The pressure builds in the arteries in your eyes
What a strange surprise
When you realize you’ve died.

Track Name: Fat In My Blood Blues
FAT IN MY BLOOD BLUES

(MEL BORINS M.D.) (ALL RIGHTS RESERVED)

Cholesterol is high.
HDL‘s too low
LDL’s too high.
So is my ratio.

I‘ve got hyperlipidemia.
I’ve got hypercholesterolemia.
I‘ve got hypertriglyceridemia.
Fat in my blood blues.

My pappy died when he was forty three,
He had so many clogged arteries,
Doctor said this could happen to me.
Take these pills
Here, take these pills.

Throw away the pork and beans,
No more butter no more cream,
I used to fry
But now I am cooking with steam.

Casue I I got hyperlipidemia
I ‘ve got hypertriglyceridemia
I’ve got hypercholesterolemia
Fat in my blood blues.

I got so many risk factors
Doctor thinks I should take …….
So glad my muscle don’t ache.
Lab says my liver enzymes are great.
Fish oils and niacin
Exercise and becoming thin
Time I took one of those statins.

Cause I‘ve got hyperlipidemia.
I’ve got hypercholesterolemia.
I‘ve got hypertriglyceridemia.
Fat in my blood blues.
I’ve got hypercholesterolemia.
Fat in my blood blues.
