(to the tune of “Proud Mary” by John Fogerty)

Left health care up to the Congress,
Corporate lackeys  workin’ evr’y night and day,
Insurance heads don’t lose one minute of sleepin’,
Knowin’ who they had to bribe and pay.

Chorus:
Congress people keep on shovelin’,
Cowed Barry keeps on grovelin’,
Sold us, sold us, sold us down the river.

Made a pile of dough from the Bush wars,
Doubled that from bailin’ Big Banksters out,
But they never saw the upside of sick people
Till they cashed the checks from HMO’s.

Chorus:
Congress people keep on shovelin’,
Cowed Barry keeps on grovelin’,
Sold us, sold us, sold us down the river.

If you come on down to D.C.,
Bet you gonna find politicians who smile,
Knowin’ they got health care and a lot of money,
While the rest of us get sick and die.

Chorus:
Congress people keep on shovelin’,
Cowed Barry keeps on grovelin’,
Sold us, sold us, sold us down the river.
