Give Us Single Payer

Give Us Single Payer
Original words and music “Living on a Prayer” by Jon Bon Jovi,
Additional lyrics by Wayne A. Schneider, 2009

Once upon a time not so long ago:

Tommy loves his work as a doc.
Patients have all griped,
Insurance is not enough.
It’s tough.

Gina works to find a new way
Working on her plan.
She thinks Single Payer’s just
For us

She says,
We gotta hold out for what we want
It doesn’t make a difference if they like it or not
They got our money and that’s a lot of dough

So give it a shot

Oh, it’s just not fair
Oh-oh, give us Single Payer
Take a stand, we want it I swear
Oh-oh, give us Single Payer

Tommy knows his patients’ bad luck
Now they’re telling him
The abuse they have to take’s so tough,
So tough

Gina dreams us having our way
When she tries to do right,
Tommy whispers, “Maybe, Single Pay.
Someday.”

We gotta hold out for what we want
It doesn’t make a difference if they like it or not
They got our money and that’s a lot of dough

So give it a shot

Oh, it’s just not fair
Oh-oh, give us Single Payer
Take a stand, we want it I swear
Oh-oh, give us Single Payer
Give us Single Payer

We’ve got to hold out it’s in our sight
You live for the fight when you know that you’re right

Oh, it’s just not fair
Oh-oh, give us Single Payer
Take a stand, we want it I swear
Oh-oh, give us Single Payer

Oh, it’s just not fair
Oh-oh, give us Single Payer
Take a stand, we want it I swear
Oh-oh, give us Single Payer

Oh, it’s just not fair
Oh-oh, give us Single Payer

  1. While I’m not a huge Bon Jovi fan, your lyrics make it work.

    Kudos again, Wayne.
