I Am Waiting

Lyrics by: Penelope Foran
Gaggle: New Mexico
Tune: I Feel Pretty

I am waiting, I am waitingI’ve been patient and quiet and good
Oh so patient: I’ve done everything that I should.

I am waiting, I’m still waiting
Getting madder and sadder and blue.
Tired of waiting — I don’t want to stay and catch the flu.

Maybe all I need is a helping hand
Maybe all I need is my meds
Can’t you help me get
out of this place
I don’t want to fill
one of your beds!

We need health care, people’s health care
We need clinics and nurses and docs
We need health care
And we need it without sticker shock!
