Chemotherapy 02:26
You’ve been saving, boy, that’s great Feels good to put some money away You’ve got everything signed on the dotted line You’ll retire in the desert one day But don’t forget the system’s rigged It’s rigged against you and me If you live long enough every penny you save You’re gonna spend on chemotherapy It don’t matter if you’re rich or poor A Republican or a Democrat The insurance man can’t cover everybody There’s no money, it’s really simple math So you’re better off traveling now Or going on a spending spree If you wait too long, all your money’ll be gone You’ll blow it all on chemotherapy What’s it worth to you to stop the pain Can you put a number on one more day One last chance to watch your children play One more night, one more night in your own bed The surgeon puts his hand against your throat That scalpel it gleams like a knife As the nurse rifles through your credit cards He says, “Boy it’s your money or your life” That’s a hard decision to make Even Jesus would surely agree To make someone decide between their money or their life That’s as tough as chemotherapy And every every penny in every piggy bank Is being saved for chemotherapy
