The Lyrics

The people got what they voted for. Well, most of it, anyway. The people who didn't want this? By their hatred, their bigotry, and their willingness to let people go bankrupt, suffer and die... They have lost the right to call themselves "pro-life," "pro-middle class," or even "American." Certainly not "the majority," and they never will be.
(instrumental opening)

Every time I see tears in the right wing's eyes
I see a great thing money just can't buy.
One look
at them
we turn
away.
We got
the health
care LAW
today!

Everything we want
we got it.
Everything we need
we got it.
In the Congress hall
we got it.
Baby!

Every time I saw him
I yelled, "Come on, Bam."
How he got the bill through
proves that he's our man.
We live
(we live)
our lives
(our lives)
in pain
(in pain)
it's true.
We won.
(We won)
despite
(despite)
the hate
(the hate)
they spew!

Everything we want
we got it.
Everything we need
we got it.
In the Congress hall
we got it.
Baby!

Everything we want!
(We got it.)
Everything we need!
(We got it.)
In the Congress hall!

Doo-da-doo-da-doo!
Whoa...
Doo-da-doo-da-doo!
Whoa, yeah...
Doo-da-doo-da-doo!
(We got it.)

I'm glad
(I'm glad)
to give
(to give)
my vote
(my vote)
to you!
I know
(Barack)
you feel
(you feel)
the way
(the way)
I do... whoo!

Everything we want
we got it.
Everything we need
we got it.
In the Congress hall
we got it.
Baby!

Everything we want
we got it.
Everything we need
we got it.
In the Congress hall
we got it.
Baby!

In the Congress hall
(We got it.)
Ba...by!
We got it!

Well-written parody. A song of celebration. Hope you are still cheering while waiting six months for an emergency appendectomy performed by an affirmative action bureaucrat from the IRSS. 2700 pages nobody read to be translated in 40,000 pages of rules nobody will be allowed to read. This can't be good. Bam got his bill by buying the votes of thieves with our money. They own us now, field hand or house servant. But once again, your song is well written.

Well written. Hope that true GOOD does come out of it...

If it works, I'll be the first to admit it. ALL of us aren't demons. Heck, I won't even one-bomb your work just because I disagree. I guess civility really does come with age. ;D 555 - trillion deficit.

The Four Horsemen of The American Economic Apocalypse: Socialized Health Care, Immigration Reform, Cap & Trade, Card Check. The Entitlement Mindset overtaking this country is unsustainable and un-American. Members of Tom Brokaw's Greatest Generation are glad they're on the way out. They literally weep for the destruction of everything they fought for and saw their Patriot Brethren die for.

Lord Pacholek, . . . but what about ~GentGordonGekko~ . . . he's still in earthlyHeaven, Sir !

Everything? What about cost-containment of the thieving insurance companies? What about single-payer?. . .nothing done to streamline the labyrinthine, incompatible systems still in place. There's no real solution until the Anthems, United Healthcares, etc., are all gone. Still anything's better than what we currently have.

Nothing to do with this parody, just want to know: What do you think of couple of Mets fans crossing the "Moral Event Horizon" when they made posts regarding Thurman Munson, Billy Martin, and Corey Lidle? http://www.nydailynews.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=91981&start=0&tstart=0

Well written on a great Orbison song - of course all of his are. I think there is more to be done and will need to be done as I think we'll see prices go up from the health care companies as they try to squeeze out more profit while they have required participation and they know the govt. will get around to looking at their fees. This will cause more hardship and lead to the call for govt. takeover. Just my prediction, but I could be wrong.

Im a democrat but i still think youre being a jerk with this parody, especially with the intro and comment at the end.
Michael Pacholek - March 25, 2010 - Report this comment
I see the sniping hasn't stopped, but you know what they say: History is written by the winners, and we won. On a slightly related subject... Max: Met fans can say whatever they want, but here's the ring count: Joe Torre, Yankees 4, Mets 0; David Cone, Yanks 4, Mets 0; Darryl Strawberry, Yanks 3, Mets 1; Dwight Gooden, Yanks 2, Mets 1; Thurman Munson 2, Gary Carter 1, Mike Piazza a big fat steroid-unaided 0. Now, if the Mets were included in Obama's health care reform, THAT would have been a plan we couldn't afford!

When Roy had this hit in 1989 it was a better time to be alive. A lot of things have gone stupid - we have corporate war for entertainment, reality and trash TV, greed, corruption galore and health insurance companies stealing money and playing Hitler and giving back nothing to the workers. It will take time for the health care reform to kick in but I think it will be an improvement over what we have now. I'm so SICK of all the loudmouths spewing vitriol and hatred and rumors and gossip about things that they don't know. I wish they'd STFU and go away. There's room for some optimism now. Anyway, Exit says you're being heavy with the intro and end comments and I kinda agree. Nevertheless you made a very good parody and it makes my day. 5's all around. You ROCK!
