The Lyrics

C.P.A. = Certfied Public Accountants/ GASB = Governmental Accounting Standards Board/ 'ccounting = accounting/
DO YOU HEAR WHAT I HEAR?

Said the night wind to the ‘ccounting man
Do you see what I see
Off the balance sheet ‘ccounting man
Do you see what I see
A debt, a debt
Hidden in plain sight
You must bring this problem to light
You must bring this problem to light

Said the ‘ccounting man to the C.P.A.
Do you hear what I hear
Ringing through the Land C.P.A.
Do you hear what I hear
A wrong, a wrong
Higher than your fees
Pension debt as big as the seas
Pension debt as big as the seas

Said the C.P.A. to the GASB Board
Do you know what I know
In your ‘ccounting rules GASB Board
Do you know what I know
A child, a child
Shivers in the cold
Taxed before he’s e’en one day old
Taxed before he’s e’en one day old

Said the GASB to people everywhere
Listen to what I say
Pray for funds people everywhere
Listen to what I say
The child, the child
Sleeping in the night
Debt will snuff out his very life
Debt will snuff out his very life

Your jesting is "right on the money" (pun intended). I enjoyed it!
