The Bailout Blues

The Bailout Blues




Yesterday, I turned the fountains green to make my friends smile,


But today I see, AIG is bleeding green and it will for quite a while


My numbers are crashing and Congress is a bunch of fools


I got the no good, no doubt, no escaping bailout blues



My name is Liddy but I didn’t plot no Watergate Break-in


I work for a dollar a year, but you wouldn’t know it for a second


My company is crashing and Congress is a bunch of fools


I got the no good, no doubt, no escaping bailout blues



My car company is competing and doesn’t need no stinking bailout,


But if you could help out my friends at GM, I would take it 


My sales are crashing and Congress is a bunch of fools


I got the no good, no doubt, no escaping bailout blues



I was at the New York Fed, was a Master of the Universe


I tried to help my friends and now things couldn’t be much worse


My stock is crashing and Congress is a bunch of fools


I got the no good, no doubt, no escaping bailout blues



I play by the rules and pay my taxes by the April 15 deadline


I have watched my 401k sink and my hopes for retirement decline


My world is crashing and Congress is a bunch of fools


I got the no good, no doubt, no escaping bailout blues
