The Lyrics

Town-hall meetings this August have been marked by opposition to health insurance reform, typically by seniors who suspect cuts to Medicare. I imagine the US President responding to a female questioner with this reassuring yes-I-can parody of the recent version of an old OS.
I can give you anything by GOV, lady;
That's the one thing that you're meant to love, lady.
Read a mile high bill pile, manure you'll find;
Crappy mess, I confess, almost brings what you have pined for.

See, I'd like to keep you looking well, lady;
Hip replacement's full worth when you fell, maybe.
Till election day I'll grow my spell, lady;
I will give you anything by GOV.
GOV = big government, of course. If a bill is less than 1000 pages, it is sent back to committee.

I offer this amendment: change "one thing" in line 2 to "wellspring", "you have pined" in line 4 to "you're in line", and "spell, lady" in line 7 to "shell-gaming".

"GOV is all that I can give to you"...and you're welcome to it. Thanks Barry for saying it and in such a musical way. ;D

And I can't give you anything but 5's for your profound commentary (meaning, of course, that you agree with me!) ;)

OMR: Thanks and btw, if the town-hall meetings fail to change enough votes, line 8 will be "Try to live through ev'rything by GOV."
