I’ll be having a similar tumor removed from my neck next week.

Lump in my neck
You don’t belong
Pain in the neck
You don’t belong.
Cut me all up
with a sharp knife
Open the skin
take out the strife.
Pull that bad boy
right out of me
Send him over
for a biopsy
Lump in my neck
You don’t belong
anywhere else
except this song.
