Track Name: The Graduation Song
INTRO

Tonight we congratulated those that graduated/
We show you love ... cuz we're glad you made it
Through the days when you felt your time was eradicated/
And you felt so exhausted and aggravated/
But the future's here so you're excited and elated
& that's why we celebrate it & we're getting animated/

This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)

CHORUS

The Miami Valley Residents/
Cuz even when your time felt irrelevant/
You're still so strong, skillful, intelligent/
& it's been our pleasure to witness your development/

To more than just a O-B resident/
Even post call y'all still look elegant/ (Riiiiiiight)
This is your moment so relish it/
We do cuz in our lives you are heaven sent/

This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)

VERSE

DR. RICHARDSON

Let's start with Dr Crantz my boo/
During these crazy years is when we said I do/
& I'm true to my captain/
How did four years happen so quickly/
NiNiI'm just happy your wit me/
Cuz I love you and that's a daily epiphany/
& we'll need that love through pregnancy & infancy/

This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)

DR. NG

Now let's go to Dr. Nig ya dig/
I know it's Dr Ng man yo I joke I kid/
The San Franciscan was the best addition/
A shining light she's the definition/
Always in that fashion in with the next edition
But if things ever really got scary/
She relied on the love of daisy and Daniel Nassery/

This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)

DR. HAAS

Now let's talk about Rachel Haas/
@ the hospital or the party she's the boss/
The Haas house is where the stress disperse/
Where we all found solace when the times were worst/
Cuz you have some good food/ with the habs some good some dudes
& you have some good drinks... Now you have a good mood

This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)

DR. ANDERSON

Now I'm talking bout Janders/
Always laughing cuz often that is the only answer/
Sense of humors sharp and she smart and supportive/
Loves friends & famalay & everyday she gets rewarded/
& when she gets home & gets a nice lift/
From her little red dog and husband Mike Smith

This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)

DR. CLINTON-CIROCCO

& if you wanna see mad love/
Watch Kelly watching the badgers and cubs/
So much passion always all about the action/
Always cheering and yelling about everything that happened/
& it's the same with her Mom & her boo & her crew
While you're cheering for them they are cheering for you!

This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)

DR. SIMPSON

Samantha Simpson she is so great/
Thinks there’s 18 wheels on a roller skate/
Is she a hipster, tragically hip or just basic?
I don't know but she's super smart and motivated/
& that is easy to tell/ so I know she'll do well/
@ her fellowship in Connecticut @ Yale/

This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)
This for you! (This for you!)

Track Name: WORK! (Pager Bling Remix)
CHORUS

I put in WORK/
Until it HURT/
Overnight shift zombie-like is how I walk this earth/
I put in WORK/
Man I put in WORK/
& when I'm tired I start to wonder what it's worth/

I put in WORK/
Until it HURT/
Overnight shift zombie-like is how I walk this earth/
I put in WORK/
Man I put in WORK/
& when I'm tired I start to wonder what it's worth/

VERSE !

Work three jobs & I'm saving up/
But I feel like I can't save enough/
I made a payment but my debt staying up/
So I work til I feel I'm paid enough/
Gotta go hard no laying up/
24 hours just ain't enough/
Working hard with no play is tough/
So I always make sure that I play enough/
but when my do is low/
& funds starts to slow/
My money man talks til he can't say enough/
About 401... IRA/
Mutual funds... By the way/
Insurance... what happens if you die today/
That's what I'm tryna say, man I'm tryna play/
on vaca... man I'm tryna fly away/
So I work hard trying to find way/

CHORUS

I put in WORK/
Until it HURT/
Overnight shift zombie-like is how I walk this earth/
Cuz I put in WORK/
Man I put in WORK/
& when I'm tired I start to wonder what it's worth/

Cuz I put in WORK/
Until it HURT/
Overnight shift zombie-like is how I walk this earth/
I put in WORK/
Man I put in WORK/
& when I'm tired I start to wonder what it's worth/

BREAK

WORK (Repeated)

CHORUS

I put in WORK/
Until it HURT/
Overnight shift zombie-like is how I walk this earth/
Cuz I put in WORK/
Man I put in WORK/
& when I'm tired I start to wonder what it's worth/

Cuz I put in WORK/
Until it HURT/
Overnight shift zombie-like is how I walk this earth/
I put in WORK/
Man I put in WORK/
& when I'm tired I start to wonder what it's worth/

CHORUS 2

They used to hit me on my pager/
Late night when I was… on… call/

They hit me on that pager/
Late night when I was… on… call/


& every time my pager bling
That can only mean one thing WORK

See every time my pager bling
That can only mean one thing (WORK)

Every time I’m in the hospital/
You know I start to feeling stressed out/
Wonder if medicine was the best route/
My friends are having fun & I feel left out/
Cuz every time I’m in the hospital
I go out less an I just work more/
Spending all my nights on the med/surg floor/
Tryna fix diseases I've never seen before/

VERSE 2

Every time I step in the hospital/
I start to frown & I lost my smile/
Gotta focus up and be the boss awhile/
& every situation seems volatile/
Man... Negativity is on the prowl/
Try to laugh it off but I often scowl/
No awesome nights in a awesome town/
Naw I'm getting paged, getting tossed around/
Looking for free time in the lost & found/
But all I see is paperwork til I've gotten drowned/
So life is work then it’s notes/
A 30 hour call that’s overdose/
Then I pass out till I'm comatose/
Feel I'm losing my fam so i hold em close/
Residency my job I'm just over broke/
Looking for support I'm just told to cope/
Keep telling myself “Mike hold ya hope/
You almost at the end man hold ya rope/
Climb & fight til you reach the top”/
So I work hard, grind & teach a lot/
Through the stress man I find a peace a lot/
In my call room when I play the beats & rock/
Now I'm feeling positive & doing major things/
Step out the door & then my pager blings/ Nooooo

CHORUS

They used to hit me on my pager/
Late night when I was… on… call/

They hit me on that pager/
Late night when I was… on… call/


& every time my pager bling
That can only mean one thing WORK

See every time my pager bling
That can only mean one thing (WORK)

Every time I’m in the hospital/

I put in WORK/
Until it HURT/
Overnight shift zombie-like is how I walk this earth/
Cuz I put in WORK/
Man I put in WORK/
& when I'm tired I start to wonder what it's worth/

I put in WORK/
Until it HURT/
Overnight shift zombie-like is how I walk this earth/
Cuz I put in WORK/
Man I put in WORK/
& when I'm tired I start to wonder what it's worth/
