Health Care Forms

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly.
Her health insurance won’t cover it;
I guess she’ll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed some forms
That annoyed and choked and stuck inside her.
She swallowed the forms to cover the fly.
I don’t know why she swallowed the fly.
I guess she’ll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed her clock.
How absurd to swallow a clock!
She swallowed her clock to gain some time
To fill out the forms that stuck inside her.
She swallowed the forms to cover her care
For the swallowed fly – why did she swallow the fly?
I guess she’ll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a hammer.
Imagine that, she swallowed a hammer.
She swallowed the hammer to break the clock.
She swallowed the clock to gain some time
To fill out health forms that stuck inside her.
She swallowed the forms to cover the fly.
I don’t know why, she swallowed the fly.
I guess she’ll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a pol.
My what desperation, to swallow a pol.
She swallowed the pol to grab up the hammer.
She swallowed the hammer to break the clock.
She swallowed the clock to gain some time
To fill out the forms that stuck inside her.
She swallowed the forms to get the care
For the swallowed fly; why did she swallow the fly?
I guess she’ll die.

I know an old lady who wouldn’t swallow the line
That health care won’t help her, at least not this time.
She rebelled and threw up the name of the pol.
She swallowed the pol to grab up the hammer.
She swallowed the hammer to break the clock.
She swallowed the clock to gain some time
To fill out health forms that stuck inside her.
She swallowed the forms to cover the fly.
I don’t know why, she swallowed the fly.
I guess she’ll die.

My what desperation, to swallow a pol.
She swallowed the pol to grab up the hammer.
She swallowed the hammer to break the clock.
She swallowed the clock to gain some time
To fill out the forms that stuck inside her.
She swallowed the forms to get the care
For the swallowed fly; why did she swallow the fly?
I guess she’ll die.

She swallowed the clock to gain some time
To fill out the health forms that stuck inside her.
She swallowed the forms to get the care
For the swallowed fly; why did she swallow the fly?
I guess she’ll die.

I know an old lady who demanded health care reform.
“By 2009 we’ve waited too long.”
She demanded health care reform with the great big hope
Never to hear again, “can’t help you this time.”
She rebelled and threw up the name of the pol.
She swallowed the pol to grab up the hammer.
She swallowed the hammer to break the clock.
She swallowed the clock to gain some time
To fill out the health forms that stuck inside her.
She swallowed the forms to get the care
For the swallowed fly (accidental, I hear).

Let’s not let her die.
