LYRICS:

Well they'll be there in an instant
with the stars and stripes unfurled
glady going to the most dangerous
places in the world

But today it seems our fighting folks
are in danger once again
You may have seen the headlines in the news
or watching CNN

When we heard the wait times on our list
were so long that patients died
We said "This is government-run healthcare"
"So we're gonna do what's right"

We're gonna grab a piece of paper
and we'll make a second list
We'll just say that wait times aren't that long
and that no deadlines were missed
and when people die we'll cross them off
and pretend they don't exist
cuz there ain't no doubt we can't be fired
God bless the government

It ain't just about the soldiers
you see we also sacrifice
There are days you'll find us working
until the crack of 4:45

But for all the soldiers out there
who sick and need some help
What can they do to get the government
to care about their health?

They could grab a piece of paper
and write down something like this
and abandon your whole unit
then they'll care when you get sick
and if people die when they look for you
we'll pretend they don't exist
cuz there ain't no doubt we can't be fired
God bless the government.
