I know the things you say of me:  you wish that I d drop dead.
You think I am unfeeling; well, I ll have you know I dread
The day that you may go, before your treatment is complete
The day your empty pocketbook will leave you on the street.
I hope you ve paid your premiums, or at least made out your wills.
I ll heal your battered bodies if you can pay my bills.

There was a time I didn t plan to charge so high a fee,
When I had youthful principles, and thought to heal for free.
But I had loans to pay off, and the payments weren t small.
I know you think I m greedy, for I ve long since paid them all.
But you don t know my med school and the values it instills.
I ll heal your battered bodies   and you will pay my bills.
