When You’re Sixty Four

Apologies to the Beatles

When you get older losing your hair,
Ten years from now.
Will Medicare still have a bottomline
Will it send Birthday greetings or feed you a line

If you’ve still out there ten years from now
Will Medicare lock the door
When you need new knees, and you have no fees
When you’re sixty-four

You'll be older too,
If you vote and say the word
Will Medicare stay with you

You can vote for Ryan
Or vote for Obama
Or the Dalai Lama
Anything goes when you're fifty four

Will you pay a Medicare voucher
Will Medicare go bankrupt
Will it still be corrupt
When you’re sixty four

You may still be randy, lighting a fuse
When Medicare lights have gone out
Medicare will no longer burn by the fireside
Politicians may have taken it for a ride

Doing the garden, digging the weeds
Who could ask for more
You will need Medicare, it will still bleed you
When you’re sixty-four

You can go to the doctor, but I fear
But he/she just might be too dear
You can scrimp and save
Grandchildren on your knee
But they may be in a financial cave

Send me a postcard, drop me a line,
Stating Medicare’s point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say
Medicare sincerely, wasting away

Give me your answer, fill in a form
Mine for nevermore
Medicare, will you still be there, can I still believe in you
When you’re sixty-four

So sis Boomer Boomer
Bye Bye Medicare
Sorry to see you go
When you're sixty-four

Tweet: When you’re 64, will Medicare still be there, will doctors still be there, will you pay by voucher, will it be the same, when you’re 64.
