WATCH: The nurse is the (wo)man of the year


(S)he’s the (wo)man of the year / Independent / A career / There’s not a thing / That (s)he couldn’t do…
We absolutely love the lyrics to Animaniac’s “Hello Nurse”! This endearing 1993 parody definitely says it — the nurse is the (wo)man of the year! See the cartoon where an adorable 7-year-old Animaniac praises the nurse!

(Scroll down for the full lyrics)

Hello Nurse

She’s the woman of the year
Independent, a career,
There’s not a thing
That she couldn’t do.

Oh, she’s alert
She’s aware,
She’s got legs
Like Astaire,
And a 157 I.Q.

She has several PHDs
Speaks fluent Japanese,
And her shoes
Will always match
with her purse.

Whatever street
She’s walkin’ down,
Everybody turns around
And says…

She likes
Cheese and pepperoni,
Won a Pulitzer
And a Tony,
She played the leading
Role in King Lear.

She never drinks
She never smokes,
She never laughs
At dirty jokes,
She was ambassador
To China last year.

She’s politically correct
She’d never call collect,
She plays Chopin
And she doesn’t rehearse.

And when she’s walkin’ by
I give a little sigh,
And shout,

She gets her math
Equations right,
She reads Tolstoy
Every night,
She won the Nobel Prize
In physics, it’s true!

She drives
A shiny new Corvette,
Sings opera at the Met,
And volunteers
Her time at the zoo.

Oh, she won
A scholarship to Yale,
Got a Fullbright
In the mail,
And took a two-year
Junior college degree,

She’s manna sent
From Heaven,
Too bad I’m only seven
Cause, Hello Nurse,
I wish you’d
Take care of me!
