And the lyrics:

Battle Hymn Of The Insurance Companies
(to the tune of "Battle Hymn Of The Republic")

Rejoice and let us glory in the profits we attain
By rationing the remedies for suffering and pain.
And no one's gonna mess with all our monetary gain.
Let's save the status quo!

Chorus:
If our health care corporation
Never faces regulation,
We'll be brimming with elation!
Let's save the status quo!

We bought a bunch of senators and congresspeople too.
They serve our corporate interests and we tell them what to do.
This gravy train will stop the day a health care bill gets through.
Let's save the status quo!

Chorus: If our health care corporation (etc.)

Our PR team is crackerjack. We're framing the debate!
We're spreading lots of lies and we're unleashing lots of hate.
We'll drive a stake into the bill the day it leaves the gate.
Let's save the status quo!

Chorus: If our health care corporation (etc.)

A decent public option is an option we won't bear.
And Medicare for everyone would kill our market share.
We'll never win the game if all the rules are just and fair.
Let's save the status quo!

Chorus: If our health care corporation (etc.)

In every other wealthy nation health care is a right.
But not here in America, no, not without a fight!
We're fighting for the right to monstrous profits day and night.
Let's save the status quo!

Chorus: If our health care corporation (etc.)
