The Lyrics

Submitted to Q104.3 NYC
So, this is the tale of our market crash

Our Debt's here for a long, long time

We'll have to make the best of things....
It's an uphill climb...

Our President and the new one soon should do they're very best,

To make the people reassured of their lost retirement nest.

No phone! no lights!
No motor car...
Not a single luxury...

If the market does not recover, it looks like reality

So get out there and vote real soon
And hope it brings a smile..
Our hope and dreams are stranded now
Here on Bailout Bill's Isle!

Should read "do their very best". I like this better than the opening theme. Good use of the original lines "No phone...etc". There's nothing the government can do to solve the financial crisis, and the sooner they start doing it, the sooner the markets will fix themselves.
