From the album “Peace Is Where You Make It

Listen to Dr. Atomic’s Medicine Show play this song.

G                            Em               Am
Tell me how this sounds for health care
C                                                                     D
You’re covered just as soon as you are born
G                           Em              Am
Paying for it no longer is a nightmare
C                                                            D
Your bills don’t read like economic porn

Medicare for you
Medicare for me
C                        Em
Medicare’s the kind of care
Am                        D
That everybody needs.

G                              Em                         Am
Obamacare beats out the former system
C                                                  D
But it’s still run by corporate greed
G                                     Em       Am
Fairness means we’ve got to resist ‘em
C                                               D
Medicare for all is what we need


And don’t be afraid of the S-word
Not if you got here on a public street
Don’t let your thinking be censored
By right-wing nuts and corporate elites.


Don’t vote against your best interests
Insurance profits don’t help you get well
The fear that’s created by alarmists
Is all just to make you buy the scam they sell.


You say you don’t want health care to be rationed
Guess what, my friend, it already is
But reserving health for rich folks is old fashioned
Let’s give it to the people not big biz

Chorus, then:

C           Am                  D                 G
It’s the kind of care everybody needs.
