Sometimes it seems that every politician
Is just a corporate shill
Accepting money from the billionaire class
Who’ll bend him or her to their will,
Now if you think they’re all like that
You wouldn’t be far from wrong,
But I’ll tell you ‘bout an honest candidate for president,
If you’ll listen to my song.

Well, he doesn’t take money from superPACs,
And he doesn’t take money from Corporate hacks,
So he’s the only one who’d make the one percent
Pay their fair share of tax.

Oh you can’t buy Bernie,
No, no, you can’t buy Bernie,
Well you cannot buy an honest guy,
Bernie’s not for sale.

Bernie won’t take money from
the insurance industry,
So he’ll fight for medicare for all
including you and me.
Bernie won’t take money
from drug companies,
So he can fight against drug price hikes that will
bring us to our knees,

And Bernie won’t take money
From those big Wall Street banks,
So when they say we’ll help you draft deregulation legislation,
Bernie can say No Thanks.

Oh you can’t buy Bernie,
No, no, you can’t buy Bernie,
Well you cannot buy an honest guy,
Bernie’s not for sale.

Bernie won’t take money from Exxon or Shell
So he can tell them no you can’t drill that deepwater oil well
Bernie won’t take money from those who sell fossil fuels
So he doesn’t have to placate climate change denying fools.

And Bernie won’t take money
From Charles and David Koch,
So Bernie’s not afraid to wade into the fight
to help unions and working folk.

Oh you can’t buy Bernie,
No, no, you can’t buy Bernie,
Well you cannot buy an honest guy,
Bernie’s not for sale.

Bernie won’t take money from McDonald’s or their like,
So he supports their low wage workers when they organize to strike.
Bernie won’t take money from Dick Cheney’s Halliburton,
He’ll resist the profiteers’ war cries unless the danger’s certain.

And for Bernie Black Lives Matter,
So do women and the poor,
And as for refugees from over the seas,
Bernie wouldn’t slam the door.

Because you can’t buy Bernie,
No, no, you can’t buy Bernie,
Well you cannot buy an honest guy,
No, no, you cannot buy an incorruptible guy,
Bernie’s kind and Bernie’s just
So vote for a candidate we can trust,
‘Cause Bernie’s not for sale.
(Not to Monsanto, no, no)
Bernie’s not for sale.
(No, not to Goldman Sachs)
Bernie’s not for sale.
