Imagine (You Have Healthcare)

charlie kingBy Charlie King

Original Song © John Lennon, new concept inspired by Will Fudemann

Imagine you have healthcare
It’s easy if you try
Freedom to choose your doctor
Cov’rage money can’t buy
Imagine first class treatment
When you’re unemployed

Imagine no insurance
No greedy middleman
No premium, no co-pay
A single payer plan
Imagine A long illness
And you don’t lose your home

CHORUS: You may say I’m a dreamer
I’m not dreaming by myself
I hope someday you’ll join us
2nd time we’ll join them
And the world can live in health

Can you say “Universal”?
I wonder if you can
Now try “Comprehensive.”
Does this sound like a plan??
It’s worked for years in Europe
Canada & Japan
