The Lyrics

Shout-out to Slowpoke of In the 00's for giving me the news story context tied to this song. My second choice was to use a Sloan song. I'll try to do a Twilight Zone intro. Submitted for your humour, a junior senator from a state known for mint juleps and derby horse races. Unable to keep up with the pack in 2016, further reflection of previous statements would deem such a man a traitor to his platform. Difficult neighbor relations would provide the means by which treason would be brought, despite the comfort of job security, but not enough perks. Such injuries has left him with a diagnosis of cognitive dissonance, failed future president, and a trip to the Twilight Zone.
(Verse 1)
Got myself in a fight with, my neighbor
Left me with broken ribs, and a bruised lung
Need to get hernia work, done on me
But the courts say I should go out of country
Nat-ion-al-ized healthcare is slavery
And I’ve made this case on CSPAN
But my last resort
You can find, relief up north

I won’t be that fraud that goes right under the knife
But this surgery will only prolong my own life
And I can’t see this treatment ending citizen strife
Cause I’m from KY, KY*

(Verse 2)
I can’t really understand this process
Expertise is in ophthal,-mology you see
Your hospital has good rep, in Thornhill
My lawsuit with Boucher will, cover
Nat-ion-al-ized healthcare is slavery
And I’ve phrased this lie on CSPAN
I cannot retort
You can find, relief up north

I won’t be that fraud that goes right under the knife
But this surgery will only prolong my own life
And I can’t see this treatment ending citizen strife
There’s a very long wait time, there’s a very long wait time
Don’t need your OHIP, don’t need your OHIP+
There’s a very long wait time, there’s a very long wait time

(Verse 3)
I won’t be that fraud that goes right under the knife
But this surgery will only prolong my own life
And I can’t see this treatment ending citizen strife
Cause I’m from KY, KY, US
Cause I’m from KY, KY, US
There’s a very long wait time
*KY = Kentucky State abbreviation. +OHIP = Ontario Hospital Insurance Plan.

Always enjoy the chance to point out a politician's folly. Once in a while, it helps to bring up a local story.

Well. It looks like I have finally hit that right of passage where some humorless troll would give me 1's on one of my songs. Outside of putting two "that's" in one line, (should of changed second one to "who"), I doubt that voter actually heard of this song, since it's never been parodied before. I'm not expecting 5's for this one, as some lines might be run on, after hearing the original.

...that was a PRIVATE clinic. In Canada, as in every other nation, the private practitioners and private insurers are much more efficient and effective, while socialized medicine is a major fustercluck of failure on every level.

I understand. It's hard to let go of your HMO. Though with the American Health Care system, which has an abundance of private clinics, why leave the country for treatment? Also, why would a circuit court even require treatment in another country?
