I Want a New Knee

(with apologies to Huey Lewis)

I want a new knee
One that won’t give me pains
One that won’t make me limp when I walk
Or let me know when it rains

I want a new knee
One that won’t go “click!”
One that won’t keep me up all night
Or make me walk with a stick

One that won’t make me nervous
When I put on a shoe
One that makes me feel
Like I did at 22.
