The Lyrics

Imagine a private audience with the US President. You want to express reservations about recent legislation that he signed. Will he listen? Will he wear you down to the point where you cave? If you remember TOP, you know the answer; if not, read on! If you tire, ask a child, who will be glad to finish it, and repeat and repeat .....
I've grand plan; I am tan Barack man!

That Barack man, that Barack clan!
I do not like that Barack's plan.

Do you like that health care plan?

I do not like it, Barack man.
I do not like that health care plan.

Would you like it here or there?

I would not like it here or there.
I would not like it anywhere.
I do not like that health care plan.
I do not like it, Barack man.

Would you like it in your house?
Would you like it with your spouse?

I do not like it in my house.
I do not like it with my spouse.
I do not like it here or there.
I do not like it anywhere.
I do not like that health care plan.
I do not like it, Barack man.

Would you use it on the docks?
Would you use it like a fox?

Not on the docks. Not like a fox.
Not in my house. Not with my spouse.
I would not use it here or there.
I would not use it anywhere.
I would not use that health care plan.
I do not like it, Barack man.

Would you, could you, in your biz?
Use it! Use it! Here it is.

I would not, could not, in my biz.

You may like it. You will see.
You may like it if it's free.
I would not, could not, if it's free.
Not in my biz! You let me be.
I do not like it on the docks.
I will not use it like a fox.
I do not like it in my house.
I do not like it with my spouse.
I do not like it here or there.
I do not like it anywhere.
I do not like that health care plan.
I do not like it, Barack man.

A train! A train! A train! A train!
Could you, would you, on a train?

Not on a train! Not if it's free!
Not in my biz! Sir! Let me be!
I would not, could not, on the docks.
I could not, would not, like a fox.
I will not use it with my spouse.
I will not use it in my house.
I will not use it here or there.
I will not use it anywhere.
I do not like it, Barack man.

Say! In the park? Here in the park!
Would you, could you, in the park?

I would not, could not, in the park.

Would you, could you, on a plane?

I would not, could not, on a plane.
Not in the park. Not on a train.
Not in my biz. Not if it's free.
I do not like it, Sir, you see.
Not in my house. Not on the docks.
Not with my spouse. Not like a fox.
I will not use it here or there.
I do not like it anywhere!

You do not like that health care plan?

I do not like it, Barack man.

Could you, would you, on a float?

I would not, could not, on a float!

Would you, could you, on a boat?

I could not, would not, on a boat.
I will not, will not, on a float.
I will not use it on a plane.
I will not use it on a train.
Not in the park! Not if it's free!
Not in my biz! You let me be!
I do not like it on the docks.
I will not use it like a fox.
I will not use it in my house.
I do not like it with my spouse.
I do not like it here or there.
I do not like it ANYWHERE!

I do not like that health care plan!
I do not like it, Barack man.

You do not like it, so you say.
Try it! Try it, and you may.
Try it and you may, I say.

Sir! If you will let me be,
I will try it. You will see ....

Say! I like that health care plan!
I do! I like it, Barack man!
And I would use it in a boat.
And I would use it on a float.
And I will use it on a plane.
And in the park. And on a train.
And in my biz. And if it's free.
It is so good, so good, you see!

So I will use it on the docks.
And I will use it like a fox.
And I will use it in my house.
And I will use it with my spouse.
And I will use it here and there.
Say! I will use it ANYWHERE!

I do so like that health care plan!
Thank you! Thank you, Barack man!
Even with global-search-and-replace, this took lots of final editing! I reduced the number of lines by concatenation.

Interesting choice that works well with your parody. Sounds like most of it could be coming from an insurance company.

Dr. Seuss will see you now. ;D

"Here in the park!" should be "There in the park!" You and he are in the Oval Office.

Thanks, T1K & OMR. I thought of this when he read GE&H to children at the WH Easter egg roll, promoting Michelle's healthy eating campaign. I doubt that he read all of it. BTW, there should be a blank line after the first "free."

Very witty healthcare ditty...

It's so simple, a child can understand it. I'd say, "A caveman could do it," but then, the cavemen in the Republican Party can't understand it. Then again, maybe they're not cavemen: They don't believe in evolution!

So why didn't your buddy one bomb this? ;D
