The Lyrics

The Dubya threw a party in a West Wing room
Tryin' to lift the burden of the nation's gloom
The joint was jumpin' and the walls began to move
You shoulda heard those knocked out bailout blues
Lets rock, everybody, lets rock
Everybody who was holdin' stock
Was dancing to the bailout rock

Shifty Henry played upon his Golden Sax
Bearded Ben was blowin' out some rockin' tracks
The candidate from Illinois went crash, boom, bang
The whole rhythm section was the Wall Street gang
Lets rock, everybody, lets rock
Everybody who was holdin' stock
Was dancing to the bailout rock

Number forty-three confessed to forty-one
I'm counting up the days until my term is done
While Henry begged the Democrats on bended knee
Come on and do the bailout rock with me
Lets rock, everybody, lets rock
Everybody who was holdin' stock
Was dancing to the bailout rock

A CEO was a sittin' on a pile of swaps
Way over in the corner, waitin' for the cops
The Dubya said, don't worry, you'll stay out of jail
If you can't find a buyer, you're too big to fail
Lets rock, everybody, lets rock
Everybody who was holdin' stock
Was dancing to the bailout rock

Shifty Henry said to Ben, for heaven's sake
No one seems to wanna give our plan a break
Benny turned to Shifty, sayin' screw your bank
I wanna stick around and dance with Barney Frank
Lets rock, everybody, lets rock
Everybody who was holdin' stock
Was dancing to the bailout rock

If I were picky, I might say something about repetitive choruses. But the rest was great, especially the Barney Frank line. Here are three 5s to bail out your Keough IRA.
