The Lyrics

Now that we've averted the Fiscal Cliff... NEXT!
Baby, we owe billions to the Chinese
Got us on our knees
And baby, our debt is like a fire
It’s growing higher and higher

And when we hit that ceiling
That ol’ debt-limit ceiling
Debt limit ceiling, oh baby
We’re running out of time
But we can’t cross that line
Debt limit ceiling, baby, is coming up
Debt limit ceiling is something that’s bad for us

Whenever red ink is multiplyin’
And when our borrowing ability is leavin’ us
It’s a fiscal drug you're dealing
When you say we can surely raise that debt-limit ceiling

Get up, get up, get up, get up
Won’t be bouncin’ checks
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
It’s better than sex

Baby, we can’t stop our spending
And it ain’t ending
Baby, we might be capsizin'
And our debt’s risin' and risin'

So we’ll just raise that ceiling
That ol’ debt-limit ceiling
Raisin’ the ceiling is good for us
Makes us all feel fine, it's such a rush
Buys us all more time, and it's good for us
Debt-limit ceiling, baby, ooooohh
