INSURANCE
(Toronzo Cannon, Cannonball Express Music admin. by Small Scale Music, ASCAP)

My doctor said I’m going down slow
What’s ailing me he don’t know
I got a job but I’m still the working poor
He gave me one little pill and said, “Go

“Get some insurance
Get some insurance on yourself
Insurance
‘Cause you’re too young to die”

I went to the office just to see
To find some ‘surance to cover me
Most prices I can’t afford,
It made an atheist call on the Lord

Insurance
I need some insurance, y’all
Insurance
‘Cause I’m too young to die

I read the fine print, signed on the line
I hope I got enough to keep from dying
After all the questions and the third degree
It felt just like a colonoscopy

Insurance
I need some insurance, y’all
Insurance
‘Cause I’m too young to die

I read in the paper the other day
A man lost his spouse
She’s pushing up daisies, now he can’t pay the bills
And now he lost his house

Insurance
He needs some insurance, y’all
Insurance
‘Cause you too young to die

Went back to the doctor with a plan
Insurance card in my hand
He looked at it and he said to me
“Pre-existing conditions come with a fee”

Insurance
I need some more insurance y’all (that’s what he said)
Insurance
‘Cause I’m too young to die

How much for a band-aid again?
That’s too much, I can’t afford that
Just give me nine stitches
I know I need twelve stitches, but just give me nine
I’ll take nine for now
I need a catscan, too?
All I can afford is a kitten scan
Insurance
A aspirin, how much?
Let me get two, I’ll break them in half
Insurance
Insurance
