The Lyrics

When Obamacare is established, most of us will find access to medical diagnosis and treatment rationed by your typical unfeeling federal bureau drudge. Fortunately, the same mindless bureaucracy has an alternative system already in place for those savvy enough to take advantage of it.
Goin' to the airport and I'm gonna get X-rayed
Goin' to the airport and I'm gonna get hand-sprayed
See, I'm gettin' older and It't time I had a check-up
Goin' to the airport for care

Screener's here, he is up to speed
On see-through gadgets he might need
He says, "You're next".
"Now drop your drawers".
And we'll never be strangers anymore

Because the

TSA official has his duties to attend
Making moves upon me I wish he would teach my girlfriend
His exam is thorough, not one organ is neglected
Groping from my toes to my hair

Agent says
Go have some fun
You don't have a bomb or gun
I say "Thanks, I'm so glad you care
But I'm really not flying anywhere

'Cause I'm just

Coming to the airport for a little reassurance
Coming to the airport I don't need to buy insurance
I don't need approval for some death panel committee
Coming to the airport for care

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Coming to the airport for care
Coming to the airport for care
Coming to the airport for care

Wow! Just yesterday I suggested that my parents get a full body scan at the airport instead of an MRI. I'm flattered that we think alike...and I salute your skills in getting a great parody quickly posted. ;D

But the lines will be even longer than at the Gov clinics...

Can't pace this OS perfectly because of the many long-held syllables in it ... Gooooo--in' to the chapel... so lots of latitude for parodists. Given that, it "scans" perfectly (ha ha! Oh, TT...) Nailed both OS and O. :) 555 milliroentgens for radiating brilliance.

TT--Glad you liked it. The "ooh's" and "aah's" left me lots of room for extra syllables. I sometimes close my eyes and try to hear in my mind the original vocalists performing my lyrics. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. A friend of mine just went through one of those airport scanners. Her husband was not too happy about it. Wait until they start exempting Muslims. Already in UK they are trying to figure out if the scanners violate child pornography statutes. But with teenagers sending nude pictures of themselves to each other via cell phones, I doubt the next generation will find the idea of these scanners as disgusting as I do. Lawyer alert: how long until the first complaint from a frequent flier that these scanners cause cancer?

What a great concept, and LOL lines (unlike the security lines, which are not funny at all...) ;) 555!
