Gimme My DaM Data (Data about Me)

Well it's one for the doctor
Two for the nurse
You say you're tryin' to treat me
So don't make me feel worse

Gimme my DaM data
(Data about Me!)
Gimme My DaM Data
(Data about Me!)
Gimme my DaM data
It's all about me so it's mine

You can cut out my heart
Take it to the dump
Feed it to the dogs
Replace it with a pump
You can make me pop pills
Just to keep me alive
But there's one more thing
I gotta have to survive

Gimme my DaM data
Gimme my DaM data
Gimme my DaM data
It's all about me so it's mine

You can knock me out
To treat my gloom
Lock me up
In a rubber room
You can tie me down
And shock my brain
But just one cure's
Gonna ease my pain

Gimme my DaM data
Gimme my DaM data
Gimme my DaM data
It's all about me so it's mine

You can send me your bill
Charge me anything
Drive a nice car
Live like a king
With all the dough
That I pay
Tell me why is it so hard
To get my data right away

Gimme my DaM data
Gimme my DaM data
Gimme my DaM data
It's all about me so it's mine

Gimme my DaM data
Gimme my DaM data
Gimme my DaM data
It's all about me so it's mine

  5. Uri Goren posted a nice write-up of e-Patient Dave and this video on his Hebrew-language website (but Google Chrome does a reasonable job translating it): http://e-pochonder.com/2012/08/27/%D7%94%D7%A8%D7%90%D7%A4-%D7%A9%D7%9C-%D7%94%D7%97%D7%95%D7%9C%D7%94-%D7%94%D7%9E%D7%95%D7%A2%D7%A6%D7%9D/

  6. What a wonderful music you’ve created! I like activities such as this, where it promotes camaraderie and healthy relationship among students and college administrators. I should salute the ACMImimi.org for making this event happen. And I assume that they supported this event as part of the educational training of their students, apart from giving them books to read, they’ve chosen music to help students with their learning process.
