Somebody’s been making money

Off of you and me

Like all the insurance companies

And the entire medical bureaucracy

Hospitalization and medication

Is not always an option for the working poor population

Listen up America!

The right to medical coverage should certainly be

A basic right that is guaranteed

 

The cost of medicine is sky high

It’s no wonder many of the working poor give up and die

Can’t afford a hospital stay

That costs thousands of dollars each and every day

The cost of medication is mind boggling

For those with no insurance and financially struggling

Listen up America!

The right to medical coverage should certainly be

A basic right that is guaranteed

 

Low paying jobs with no medical insurance

Families suffering with no sign of deliverance

Child with a bone disease cannot afford medication

Another dies from a tooth with an abscess infection

Children with asthma get no relief

When parents can’t afford the treatment they need

Listen up America!

The right to medical coverage should certainly be

A basic right that is guaranteed

 

Medical coverage in this land

Has not been for every man

One good illness and a person’s wiped out

Times become hard without a doubt

Lose the job…car repossessed

Life’s a mess filled with stress

Listen up America!

It’s time for a change!
