Standin’ in the Need of Single Payer

It’s your father and your mother and the uninsured
Standin’ in the need of Single Payer.
It’s your sister and your brother and the under-insured
Standin’ in the need of Single Payer.

CHORUS:
We
will rage and shout
For Single Payer Medicare for all!
Everyone in and no-one out!
Single Payer Medicare for all!

From your birthday ‘til you’re buried you will get good care
When we have a Single Payer plan.
If you’re married, single, straight or gay, you’ll get good care
When we have a Single Payer plan.

If you’re hired, then you’re fired, you’ll still get good care
When we have a Single Payer plan.
From retired to expired, you will get good care
When we have a Single Payer plan.

There’s no premium, deductible, and NO co-pay,
Under a single payer plan.
Doctors’ orders are for health, not corporate wealth,
Under a single payer plan.

“Who will pay for it?” you ask us, “We will through our taxes,”
That’s the way to get the health care that we need
And the costs will all be fair, the funding will be there,
When we banish inefficiency and greed.

Corporations that insure us don’t do anything to cure us!
We need a Single Payer plan.
We are needy ‘cause they’re greedy so let’s THROW THEM OUT
And demand a Single Payer plan.

Let’s you and me and everybody in the land
Work to get a Single Payer plan;
Health care is a human right, so let’s get out and fight
For a universal Single Payer plan!
