My thoughts about culture and our present conditions. As Dianne Moore says in Learning to Love a Wounded World, "This requires a willingness to feel everything…. the horror and the beauty of what is here…. the fear and the Love.”

We’re Number 37!

I got a kick out of this, so I just want to share it.

Were Number 37!

 

Here are the lyrics:

Here is a little song celebrating our position at #37 in the world in healthcare.

"We’re Number 37"

Come one, Come all
Down to the hall
We’re gonna make noise
We’re gonna bust balls
We’re gonna disrupt
We’re gonna jump in the fray
I got a list of all the things that were supposed to say
We’re gonna get real rowdy
Have a barrel of fun
But were the USA so by the way be sure to bring a gun
And buddy

We’re Number 37
We’re the USA
We’re Number 37
And were so proud to say
We got old people crying at the pharmacy
Pay your deductible
This ain’t the land of the f-f-f-free Grandma
We’re Number 37
Were the USA

People of the town come on down
And if you got a crazy rumor you can spread it around
I kind of like my insurance and I like my health
The other 47 million can go treat themselves
To some prayer in chapel
Fold your hands and pray
Because we are a Christian nation and that is the Christian way
And brother

We’re Number 37
We’re the USA
The big Number 37
And we’re so proud to say
We’re #1 one in tanks
We’re #1 in planes
We’re #1 in war with #2 for brains
We’re Number 37
We’re the USA

I drew a Hitler mustache on the president
Yea! Ain’t that neat
My brother had a hernia operation last year
And now hes living out on the street

We’re Number 37
We’re the USA
The big Number 37
And we want to keep it that way
Be sure to bring the kids
All of the boys and girls
Because the #1 health care system in the world.

Is in France???

We’re Number 37
We’re the USA
We’re Number 37
And we got something to say
We pay more for less
40% in fact
Lets bite some fingers off
Shout at the handicapped
Cause buddy
We’re Number 37
We’re the USA

We’re Number 37
We’re the USA
We’re Number 37
We’re the USA
