The "Hotel Melanoma" moniker is a metaphor for living with my particular brand of cancer. Except for those lucky few of us deemed "cured", all we cancer survivors are guests of one of the many, many branded hotels in the "Hotel Carcinoma" chain. We can check out any time we like, but we can never leave. Meanwhile, let's be livin' it up; and please support cancer education, prevention, and treatment research.

Cure It Up

It's Happy Hour at the Hotel Melanoma Lobby Bar.  So for all of you mole mates who are making this a loud and proud melanoma awareness month, a new version of “Stir It Up” from Bob Marley & The Wailers…

Shout it out; mela-warriors, shout it out. ‘Screen on, baby.
Come on and stir things up mela-warriors, stir things up. O-oh!

May been a black, black time, yeah!
(Shout it, shout it, shout it together)
Since we got C on our mind. (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh) Oh-oh!
Now May is here (shout it, shout it, shout it together), We said,
life’s so dear
There's so much we can do, baby, (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Just me and you.

Come on and shout it out; mela-warriors!
Stir things up; ‘Screen on, baby!
Come on and shout it out, yeah!
Mela-warriors, stir things up! O-oh!

We'll push pale’s good (shout it, shout it, shout it together),
And we’ll praise no fryer;
Then we'll rectify their bronze desire. (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Said, we shout it every (shout it, shout it, shout it together),

All you got to do, baby, (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Is keep your skin, eh!

Mela-warriors, stir it up! Wo-oh! Mm, now, now.

Bench C with that Yervoy;
’Screen on and fool that brown, baby, when it’s hot. (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Life recipe is, - darlin' - is so pasty,
When you glow you don’t look hot. (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)

Come on, come on and cure it up, oh-oh!
Mela-warriors, cure it up.
