Health Care Rag
With deepest apologies to Country Joe and the Fish.
Come on all you big strong men
Uncle Sam needs your help again
Got himself in a terrible jam
Way down yonder in Obama Care Land
Put down your party lines and pick up a pun
We’re going to have a whole lot of fun.
Well, it’s one, two, three what are we fighting for
Don’t ask me, I don’t give a damn.
Next stop is a health care plan.
Five, six, seven, open up the Pearly Gates
Whoopee a whole lot are going to die.
Well, come on senators, let’s move fast;
Your big chance has come at last.
The Republican plan is a trap
McConnell is oﬀ taking a nap.
And you know single payer is only way
To repeal and fix the mess Obama makes us pay.
Come on Wall Street, don’t be slow,
Why man, this single pay is the way to go-go
There’s plenty good money to be made
By tacking 2 cents on the Medicare trade,
A government plan at $200 a month,
Puts food in many a working family’s mouth.
Come on mothers throughout the land…
