Single Payer Blues

  • by Kay Thode
  • tune: St. James Infirmary

I went to the insurance company.
They turned my claim down there,
Said it wasn’t covered,
And they really didn’t care.

O, I went to see my doctor,
And he said he couldn’t spend
Fifteen minutes with me!
Such things have got to end.

Oh, my pills they cost me plenty,
And I know I’m going broke.
This new fangled health care,
Truly is no joke.

So, send Congress a message:
Pass single payer now!
We all really need it—
It’s good for us, AND HOW.
