About the Song from music therapist Jenny Plume

This was written a few years ago in response to my question, “How was the ambulance ride?” Ethan, who was only five years old at the time, was able to list all of the parts of the ambulance ride that he loved. This song is a great authentic account of what is sometimes a frightening experience and how it turned in to a wonderful adventure.

We are so grateful to Kix Brooks for lending his voice and his band to this upbeat bluesy rock song.

Lyrics

I went in the ambulance
Oh what fun it was
I watched Shrek, but fell asleep
And didn’t get to finish it

But I got to watch Sky High
And drink Sprite the whole time
I felt excited and I felt happy
Because it was a sweet ride

It was a sweet ride
I won’t ever forget it
It was a sweet ride
I made some friends in the ambulance
They helped me on the way
On my sweet ride

I can’t wait to tell my friends
I rode in the ambulance
It was fun if you were there
You’d think it was fun too

It was a sweet ride
I won’t ever forget it
It was a sweet ride
I made some friends in the ambulance
They helped me on the way
On my sweet ride
