The Lyrics

a little current events parody for all you political people. I usually am not to political myself, but you really don't have to be to understand this parody.
Save up….

Chorus: We’re in a recession
Just when I thought it could not get much worse
The government done said that the debt’s in reverse
God, damn all recessions
Man I’m poor, and I don’t know what to do
And all of my bills are overdue in this recession
Wonder if the prez is gonna act on this at all?
May just have to move out to Nepal
Money spent, and I don’t know what to do
Guess I’ll give you my review of this recession

Verse 1: Now this gon’ be the hardest years I think I’ll ever have to live
Got me savin’ all my cash, waitin’ for something to give
‘Bout the budget and the money that they were spendin’ it (spendin’ it)
Said that it’s the factor of the growing debt
The first thing that came to mind was food
Second thing was how did we allow ourselves to get so screwed?
Third thing was me thinkin’ it’s a mistake, it’s gotta be!
How I ain’t ready for collapse and bye bye to our economy!

Chorus: We’re in a recession
Just when I thought I said all I can say
Then I noticed that all my funds have gone away
This is my obsession
I object, to all of this recessing
I guess I’ll have to keep addressing this damn recession
Man I never thought I’d ever see my country fall
Could give England another phone call
I’m so broke, and I don’t know what to say
But to tell you where I weigh on this recession

Verse 2: Sittin’ here stuck on stupid, tryna understand
When, why, and how we just let this get out of our hands
Say they made it seem easy
Said I need to stop splurgin’, resist urges
Be savvy, and just deposit it (‘posit it)
Have to sell my whip
Racin’ to the bank
Can we get some stimulus
And I’m sorry to be frank
Could we please pass the budget before the next fiscal year!?
I said “ I’m sorry people, I’m sincere”

Chorus: Facing a recession
Just when I thought I took all I could take
The government done said we should give them a break
But we’re in a recession
Outrageous! What the hell were you thinking?
I guess then we’ll just keep on sinking in a recession
If we’re gonna fix it then we gotta fix it now
But who knows just where to start and how?
Obama, can you try to help me please!?
And maybe help us ease out of recession

Breakdown: This by far is the worst recession I think I’ve ever lived through
This happened, to the country I love
That we’ve been in dire economic straights and none can for-see the end
I hope y’all can accept the fact that we need to change for the future
And hopefully our state will just turn around
This ain’t about Democrats
This ain’t about parties
It’s about us

Chorus: We’re in a recession
Just when I thought heard all I could hear
Government done said that good economy’s near
That is good progression
Possible, that just inside the future
We might just begin to suture the cuts of recession
No one wants to do it but just has to be done
To start on a step, I suggest it be step one
Don’t be fooled, and this message is unclear
Right now we’re still stuck here in this recession

SOTM: "Are you so poor that you didn't even realize the economy was bad?" (my favorite joke about the economy) nice work and you picked the perfect song to do it to!

SOTM: You could use three 5's yourself, and we could all use a little "change" ;-D Excellent Work! :-)

Ditto Agrimorfee on the line he pointed out, not terribly funny, but damn can I relate

I'm pretty sure you mean Abbott Skelding, Dave. Weird Al Yankovic brought this song to my attention back when I attended college in Bowling Green and his latest album was coming out I looked it up. I thought it was a fantastic song at the time and I really wanted to parody it but I couldn't come up with anything so I got to give props to you for that alone. Weird Al's is without a doubt the best parody of this song but yours isn't too bad. Not hilarious but a good topic.

(SOTM) Well, this one went over my head. The only reason I know that there was a recession in America was Weird Al's T.I. parody, and even that didn't explain why it happened. The pacing here could've been tighter, and some of the internal rhymes were a bit futzed. Couldn't really dig this one, sorry.
