SONG: Obamacare Is Here to Stay

Sung to the tune of “Rock and Roll is Here to Stay”  by Ray Henderson

Oh……Obamacare
Oh……Obamacare
Oh……Obamacare
Oh……Obamacare

Obamacare is here to stay,
It can never die.
It’s designed to be that way.
Mandates say “bye, bye.”
Obamacare is here to stay.
That’s what all the people say.

If you don’t like Obamacare,
Here’s what you’ve been missin’
Kids are covered fair and square
No pre-existing conditions.
Obamacare is here to stay.
That’s what all the people say.

Supreme court heard the arguments.
Lawyers weaved and bobbed.
The Justices were all quite blunt.
Said Congress, “Do your job!”
Healthcare coverage for all
There really is no time to stall.

Obamacare is Romneycare.
Rs and Ds Agree.
Why good reforms go nowhere
Is still a mystery!
Healthcare coverage for all
There really is no time to stall.

Obamacare will always be
Reform can make it better.
It’ll go down in history.
Serving folks forever.
Obamacare will always be.
It’ll go down in history.

Obamacare is here to stay.
That’s what all the people say.
Healthcare coverage for all.
There really is no time to stall.

Obamacare will always be.
It’ll go down in history.

Oh……Obamacare
Oh……Obamacare
Oh……Obamacare
Oh……Obamacare

Lyrics by Dave Johnson, CEO of 4sight Health

John Zam

John is our favorite piano man, a consummate entertainer with a fabulous voice and incredible piano skills. He’s a lifelong Billy Joel enthusiast, and well-versed in the beloved piano bar repertoire from the 70s and 80s, with virtuosity in all genres: classic rock, the Beatles, Broadway, standards from the great crooners, country, and today’s hits. John entertained Chicago audiences for more than 20 years at the famed Redhead Piano Bar, other intimate entertainment spaces, luxury hotels and restaurants, and is based in Florida now. His shows are personal, he loves requests, and can make anyone feel special with a favorite song.

At 4sight Health, music is one of our cultural touchstones, an entrée into serious, even wonky concepts. As our troubadour, John brings to life David Johnson’s alternate lyrics to well-known songs. We don’t take ourselves too seriously! Listen to them all here.

John studied music at Northwestern University, and pivoted his communication degree and PR work to performance. Original artists from Billy Joel to Metallica have complimented him on his live covers of their songs and he’s been covered in the WSJ, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times. After decades of Chicago winters, he headed south to Miami, writes original music and performs in southern Florida, with occasional appearances at his Chicago haunts.
