Himalayan Rhapsody

To be sung to the tune of this...

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Up here at base camp
With no sense of reality
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see
I’m just a sick boy, I need a medevac
Because it’s easy come, easy go
Little high, little low
Call me a helicopter, I wanna fly back to Kathmandu, Kathmandu

Mungo, can’t do that hill
Sends shivers down my spine
Body’s aching all the time
Mungo, the walk down has just begun
But now I wanna fly back down to Kathmandu
Mungo, ooo
Don’t wanna walk that far
If I can’t walk again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, just leave me here at base camp.

Too late, we leave at six
Don’t wanna do that bike
Or that crazy neuropsych
Mungo, I just can’t go on
Or maybe I just need some lemon tea
Lemon tea (anyway the tea flows)

I see the silhouette of Pasang
Lemon tea, Lemon tea
Can’t you make her go more slowly
This trek is always climbing, very very frightening
Pheriche, Lobuche
