American Health Pie

A long long time ago

I can still remember when a doctor tried to cure and heal

You knew that if you were sick or hurt

That it would not cost you your shirt

And maybe you could even make a deal

But Empire didn't meet the deadline

To get some help for neck, back and spine

Bad news for the doctor

We can't pay any doctor

I can remember that I cried

When I realized Blue Cross had lied

The company sure took their side

The day that health care died

So, Bye-Bye American Health Pie

Took the subway to the clinic

For some health care to buy

And, them Empire boys were selling buckets of lies

Singin' you could cure yourself if you try

Or we won't have to pay if you die
