The Health Care Blues of the Night

I've been wanting to put this song together on my tape recorder for a couple of months.

I sincerely apologize to Johnny Mercer and Harold Arlen.

Both were among the greatest songwriters and lyricists of all time. I'm afraid I've made a shambles of a wonderful tune they wrote. Without further delay I present;

The Healthcare Blues of the Night

Obama done tol’ me,
We gotta’ have healthcare,
Healthcare for everyone.
The rich and poor ones.
The old and the young ones,
Healthcare for everyone.
The next generation,
is gonna’ be payin’ and payin’,
an’ payin’ for it.

Obama done tol’ me,
We’re gonna’ have healthcare,
Healthcare is gonna’ come.
In the Red and the Blue states,
There might be a long wait,
If you are sick and need a doctor son.
So quit all your whinin'
give into the man
who's got the big plan
for Healthcare.

Can’t you hear Pelozi crowin’
Harry Reid is surely goin’
Obama don’ tol’ me
Glenn Beck’s ‘bout to have a hemorrhage,
Limbaugh needs an adult beverage,
So start realizin’
There’s no comprimisin’
‘cause we’re socializin’ healthcare.

From Memphis to Mobile,
from New York to L.A,
Healthcare is gonna’ come.
It’s movin’ quite steady,
You better get ready,
For healthcare for everyone.
It’s such a boondoggle
The governments trying
To mess up and
Toggle healthcare.
