    Lyrics by "Sleepyeyes" copyright 2003


    Just a new-grad nurse, her first time on the floor, looking for the job of her life
    In Long Term Care no one sees her at all, they all know she's crazy

    Lock the narc box, chart, keep your juice pitcher full, finish med pass in under 2 hours
    Now she's thrown to the wolves, she is out on the floor, but still they say she's lazy

    It can make or break your life, if you're followed by the State
    Here, there're pills for those who have no will to be


    ---CHORUS---
    She's an LPN, LPN on the floor,
    And she's charting like she's never done before
    She's an LPN, LPN on the floor
    And her DON just left the SNF at four

    Nursing home MDS says life has quality, but they lie, there are no guarantees
    In the real-time world, we just give 'em our best, and the SNFs are now all restraint-free,

    You work hard all your life for that moment in time, just to punch out and go home on time
    It's the dream of the nurse, but the night nurse calls off
    Now you're stuck hoping someone shows

    There's a soreness in her feet, never got a bite to eat,
    Never stopping in her treatments down the hall...


    ----CHORUS-----
    She's an LPN, LPN on the floor
    And she's charting like she's never done before
    There's a PATIENT, Gawd, a PATIENT on the floor!
    And now she has an Incident Report

    It can make or break your life, if the State comes in at three
    And sees only you 2 staffers working there

    ---CHORUS-----
    She's an LPN, LPN on the floor
    And she's charting like she's never done before
    She's an LPN, LPN on the floor
    And tomorrow she'll be showing up for more

    ---CHORUS---
    She's an LPN, LPN on the floor
    And she's dancing like she's never done before
    She's an LPN, LPN on the floor
    Hopping madly to the nearest rest room door
