Here Comes The Thumb

This parody (written by Greg Crowther) is sung to the tune of "Here Comes the Sun" (written by George Harrison and performed by The Beatles).


Context

A mnemonic for learning the eight carpal bones (in the wrist) is "So Long To Pinky; Here Comes The Thumb." The first letter of each word corresponds to the first letter of each carpal bone: Scaphoid, Lunate, Triquetrum, Pisiform, Hamate, Capitate, Trapezoid, Trapezium. Below is an awkward way to shoehorn that mnemonic into a classic Beatles song.


Lyrics

Here Comes The Thumb, So Long To Pinky!
Here Comes The Thumb, and I say
Itís all right!

Little carpals: Hamate, Capitate, Trapezoid, and Trapezium!
Little carpals: Scaphoid, Lunate, Triquetrum, and Pisiform!
Here Comes The Thumb, So Long To Pinky!
Here Comes The Thumb, and I say
Itís all right!

Little carpals: Hamate, Capitate, Trapezoid, and Trapezium!
Little carpals: Scaphoid, Lunate, Triquetrum, and Pisiform!
Here Comes The Thumb, So Long To Pinky!
Here Comes The Thumb, and I say
Itís all right!

Thumb, thumb, thumb, here it comes!
Thumb, thumb, thumb, here it comes!
Thumb, thumb, thumb, here it comes!
Thumb, thumb, thumb, here it comes!
Thumb, thumb, thumb, here it comes!

Little carpals: Hamate, Capitate, Trapezoid, and Trapezium!
Little carpals: Scaphoid, Lunate, Triquetrum, and Pisiform!
Here Comes The Thumb, So Long To Pinky!
Here Comes The Thumb, and I say
Itís all right!

Here Comes The Thumb, So Long To Pinky!
Here Comes The Thumb, and I say
Itís all right!
Itís all right!
