The Lyrics
Debt debacle
Why don't you come to consensus
You've been outright contentious
For too long now
Oh, we're disheartened
And I know that your plot's pure treason
These flings of displeasin' views
Can hurt you, and how

Oh, the jaws of greed are slimy, boys
They'll eat you if they're able
You know the bleedin' hearts are always so bereft
Now it seems to be the right wings
Are evasive and unstable
But they only want to stun and screw the left

Debt's sure awful
Oh, your shame's threat'ning our youngsters
You're blamed for your blunders
Your pride is their woe
Debt ceilin', oh ceilin'
Well that (crutch-)sum needs some chopping
Pernicious and shocking to this world that you owe

Oh, you'll feel the cold at decision time
The wise won't vote for you bums and slime
The cards you've dealt will frighten them away
As (your) boosters fall like dominoes
Tainted money vows to see you go to stay

Debt debacle
I know you scum are all senseless
Shut down your pretenses, close the debate
It may be painful, but it's a brain-blowin' must-do
You better let some money come through
[Get some funds to muck through]
You better cut some bloody sums, too
Before it's too... late

Masterful syllable matching throughout...In a parody full of great lines, "And I know that your plot's pure treason" and "Tainted money vows to see you go to stay" are as finely crafted as they come! :)

The wise won't vote for the bums and slime. But they never did. Unfortunately, the wide are outnumbered at the polls.
