    Verse







    Eeny meeny miny moe,That PharmD drippin and gotta flowAnd  I got that Ancef and fentanyl for trauma FourAnd I’m mixing up a little Levophed,So crank it up some more.. we not trying to leave em deathI see ortho over there scratching their head, But scratch that gent, let give that rocephin for that open legWhole ED bouncing when we jump on the scene,room three getting crazy, gone off that Jim BeanNow he escalating, need something to make him dream,( But guess what) I got 500 of IM ketaMINEThe Patient  in room 2 BP’s is getting kind of soft,But I got cefepime and vanco in our secret sauce,And I got the fluids too, with no time loss,The whole bundle complete, we something like a bossThe PharmD Clarifying, we order verifying, that flow so terrifyingWe out here tearing it up



















    Just made an epi drip, before you knew you need it,







    And we for the team, rarely known to be conceded







    Room 1, looking like he about to crump, but guess what.. already got Levophed hanging, end already on the pump 







    When it comes to this here, ain’t no need for stressing, I just mixed up another vial of vasopressin







    When I walk in the nurses saying that its a blessing







    When to it comes to these pharm skills, it really aint no testing,







    Cause we clarifying, we order verifying, that flow so terrifying,







    And when we walk in, you already know, we’re staying on our grind









    And you got to catch us when we pulling on your boulevard







    Everything you do and we do, we pharm so hard
