#1 Song for the Governor (tune: My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean)
Disabled folks need some assistance, humanity comes at a price
Now Arnie would cut that assistance, Does he have a heart made of ice?
CHORUS: Don't cut, don't cut! Don't cut the budget we need, we need!
Don't take, don't take! Don't take home health care away!
We a-all are differently abled, the safety net could be for you
So Arnie, please think before cutting, some day you could need some help too!
We Aa-ll are in this together, who knows what the future will bring?
We know that we must stand together, so join with the Grannies and sing!
And everyone did just that...joined in and sang!
California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is taking a hard line on unprecedented cuts to the state’s social safety net...funds for in home health services to disabled are on the chopping block
...and OUT THERE for seniors, disabled, kids....the Raging Grannies
That's "fewer" jails...say retired English teacher Grannies....but the message is duly noted!
