The Lyrics

No, this isn't about politics, about how the Republicans are blaming the federal debt that they caused on the Democrats. This is about an even bigger bunch of losers than the Republicans. It seems that Fred Wilpon and his son Jeff, owners of the New York Mets, have to sell a share of their "baseball" "team" to pay debts incurred in the Bernie Madoff stock-fraud scheme. Remember, like the Mets' bats, the "B" in "debt" is silent.
Meet the Debts!
Meet the Debts!
Step right up and greet the Debts!
Bring your kiddies and bring your wife!
They'll pay off those Debts for the rest of their life!
Because the Mets had money, they lost it all!
They've got their backs up against the wall!
East Side, West Side, all their money got flushed down!
They've got D-E-B-T-S, Debts
in New York town!
In New... York... town!
