Let it Go, Dr. Koh: The Truth Never Bothered You Anyway

After watching “Frozen” for the umpteenth time with our daughter, this line would not leave my head:

Let it Go, Dr. Koh: The Truth Never Bothered You Anyway

Of course, this is pure satire having a little fun at the government’s expense. So, here we go:

 

The cover-up’s on your desk tonight

No patient care to be seen

A kingdom of obfuscation

And it looks like you’re the king

 

IOM is howling like this swirling storm inside

Couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows you tried

 

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see

Hide the truth with your buddy Nancy Lee

Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know

Well, now we know

 

Let it go, Dr. Koh

Don’t hold it back anymore

Let it go, Dr. Koh

Turn away and slam the door

 

You don’t care

What the experts say

Let IOM rage on

The truth never bothered you anyway

 

It’s funny how some bulls**t

Makes IOM stand tall

And the needs of all the patients

Don’t get to you at all

 

It’s time to see what you can do

To crush the patients and experts, too

No right, no wrong, no rules for thee

You’re free

 

Let it go, Dr. Koh

You are one with the devil on the sly

Let it go, Dr. Koh

You never seem to cry

 

Here you stand

And here you’ll stay

Let IOM rage on

 

Your power flurries through the air into the ground

Our lives are spiraling in pathogens all around

And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast

We’re never going back

Fukuda’s in the past

 

Let it go, Dr. Koh

And we’ll rise like the break of dawn

Let it go, Dr. Koh

Your perfect ruse is gone

 

Here you stand

In the light of day

Let IOM rage on

The truth never bothered you anyway

    W O W — this is powerful and perfect, Jeannette. Very clever–poetic justice as they say. Let it go, Dr. Koh; The Truth Never Bothered You Anyway. Love it :)

  2. Carrie says:

    Love it! It would be fun if this song got stuck in their heads and they couldn’t shake it out….lol
    You have songwriting talent!!

  3. Carrie says:

    We just need one high-profile singer to record this….

  4. Polly says:

    “King of obfuscation.” So very clever of you, Jeannette! Send this one around the world, advocates, because “we’re never going back.”

    Keith Jarret has ME. Maybe he knows a singer?

  8. Julie says:

    There is a fibromyalgia patient.. supposedly in remission that is a rock singer. She is an advocate… Her is her bands single “Flare” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15AMjCJqzDg

  9. Reblogged this on Sunshinebright and commented:
    Jeannette’s pure satire is poking a little fun at the government’s expense. You certainly are a many-talented woman! I like the idea of trying to get an M.E. patient or singing advocate to sing this song with your words. Perfect!

    This is a little bit off topic, but I had to share. My daughters go to a performing arts school and not only have we watched the movie a billion times as well, but one of them performed this song in the spring show. I swear, it is so ingrained in my head that every time there’s a squabble in our house I bust out with it in song and everyone falls into fits of laughter. Thanks, Frozen. I loved your post ;)

    Excellent lyrics here. Need to get them into a song with a melody and a few instruments — and get it up on You Tube and get out the word. We need a theme song!
