Kia ora to Roimata Rangiaho for passing this on!

Intro – spoken:
Good morning Kaitaia
This is Jonathan Henry,
My Name is Alistair Papali’i-Curtin
We are both 5th year medical students working with Dr Lance O’Sullivan
Lance has been so amazing, so inspirational,
That we penned the following lyrics, put it to music
and called it “The Lance O’Sullivan Song”

Chorus:
Lance O’Sullivan we love you, yea we love you
Lance O’Sullivan we wanna be just like you,
This doctor thing is more than just a job,
you live it through and through,
We wanna be like you

We wanna dress like you (dress like you)
We wanna eat just like you (eat like you, yeah)
We wanna even procreate like you (procreate like you!)

Verse 1:
Every morn we see you
Cycling down the street.
Then you sit in clinic,
watching what you eat.
You’re a model for your patients,
you just say follow me.
Man we love your healthy living,
doctor cant you see!

Chorus:
Lance O’Sullivan we love you, yea we love you
Lance O’Sullivan we wanna be just like you,
This doctor thing is more than just a job,
you live it through and through,
We wanna be like you

We wanna speak te reo Maori like you (Kia Ora!)
We wanna do ironmans like you (ironmans yeah)
We wanna tackle huge rugby forwards like you (just like you)

Verse 2:
We know you love your culture,
its plain for all to see.
You teach your tamariki
to speak te reo Maori.
With your ironman shoulders,
you carry them along,
and we follow close behind you,
singing this song!

Chorus:
Lance O’Sullivan we love you, yea we love you
Lance O’Sullivan we wanna be just like you,
This doctor thing is more than just a job,
you live it through and through,
we wanna be like
Lance O’Sullivan we love you, yea we love you
Lance O’Sullivan we wanna be just like you,
This doctor thing is more than just a job,
you live it through and through,
We wanna be like you
We wanna be like you
We wanna be like you (like you)
