This ancient Chinese healin’ has been passed along for years
Unfortunately, in the States it’s quite new

But I’ve taken two semesters at the tech school here in town

And I can’t wait to get acupuncture’ you Owoo-hoo-hoo.

Most people haven’t heard yet of the acupuncture/rolf combination

But It’s sort of east meets west
With some Tai Chi thrown in the stew

Big needle, yes, but I know you’ll suffer less

Because the smaller needles are less familiar to me.

You know what they say: pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.
Feel that? Oh yeah! Good, now how ‘bout a little Rolfing?
Hai! Ha! AAAAHHHHH! Sorry…

You’ll be in agony for a few weeks

and throwing up in a hundred different ways,

But that’s normal when you’ve been studying

Ancient Chinese medicine for only 14 days. Woo hoo!
