The Truth - Time O'The Signs - Casualty
This song

CasualtyCasualty

I’m working the night shift
At the city hospital
A lot of bones have been broken
And much blood has been spilt
And out in the courtyard I seen a screaming blue light
Heard someone say hold em down, wheel em in, its gonna be all right
I seen a guy lying on a table
With a knife through his head
Doctor’s doing the best he’s able
But he can’t spare no bed
His blue shirt is blood red, pretty nurse all in white
When people say to me where's the casualty
I say down the corridor turn right


But there ain’t no point in you coming round here
Unless you’re prepared to wait
Check-in at eleven, but you won’t leave before eight
The matron in her office
Is wrapped a little too tight
There’s gonna be sights to see
In casualty tonight

And old Christie the porter
Man he’s seen it all before
He’s heard every hard luck story
That’s ever crawled through that door
He said the candy machine gonna pay out
If you hit it just right
There’s gonna be sweets for me
In casualty tonight

We’re all movie stars on CCTV
I’m holding the front line
The Prince of Darkness in me
Two winos in the corner
And one’s claiming second sight
People say to me where’s the casualty
I say down the corridor turn right

And there ain’t no point in you coming round here
Unless you’re prepared to wait
Check-in at eleven, but you won’t leave before eight
Young doctor from Pakistan, wish he’d stayed on the flight
People say to me, casualty, I say yeah but I feel good tonight
