Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Lord almighty
All my investments are falling
All that money
Watching it go down the drain

Gone, gone, gone
AIG, Merryll and Lehman
WaMu says Oh-Oh
Look where Wachivia lays

And the Stock Market is falling
As my stock broker is bawling
Can't bear to view the charts
Tanking stocks

Ooh, ooh, ooh
I see my mortgage imploding
Borrowed way over my head
Credit, credit, credit
It was so easy
Turned out it was all smoke
I'm in the red

And my life savings near empty
Thought this was a land of plenty
Soon I must find the bread line
Damn tanking stocks

Here comes the congress
A bailout to save the rich bankers
How will it help me?
My savings are slipping away
The Wall Street Journal
Makes me feel like heaving
Lord almighty
The Dow's down five hundred today

Now I'm pissed and need a fiver
I've become a dumpster diver
I live inside a box
Tanking stocks
Those tanking stocks,
I'm just a poor old guy with tanking stocks, WOO!
I'm just a poor old guy with tanking stocks, Yeah!
Just a poor old guy with tanking stocks, WOO!
Just a poor old guy with tanking stocks...

Parody by Mason "bail out THIS!" Resnick
