The Lyrics

This one has a full production with video... Co-write with Mark Kaufman who performed all the music and vocals.
The Fiscal Cliff

Before we slip out of the Capitol
We have to pass another bill
Another money pit to fill
Below that cliff, the fiscal cliff

We strike a deal by New Year's Eve
Or crash the world economy
And if they pin the blame on me
I'll blame George Bush, you blame Bill C

No taxes hiked, no loopholes closed
We kicked the can on down the road
We ran out of hot air to blow
Out of our dog and pony show

The fiscal cliff is super-sized
John Boehner cries, Obama's high
Before we're paralyzed let's try
To compromise, better compromise

Not too often you see two song parodies on the exact same topic using the exact same OS appear simultaneously here at Amiright. I guess great minds think alike; unless they're diametrically opposed, as you and Mike Pacholek are.

Nice write and production. Unfortunately, I think it does kicked down the road by Dec. 31st. On a brighter note, the longer they wait, the more fodder for AIR authors.

I can't believe it. "Crystal Ship" isn't even one of the top 10 songs people think of when they think of the Doors, and yet here are 2 parodies to it, to the same subject.
