The Lyrics

This economy had gone from bad to worse! So far, it had caused family crises, unemployment, some businesses either merging with another or shutting down completely, and home foreclosures. We’re living in frustrating times! As a matter of fact, I'm still unemployed up to now. This recession situation had been running through my head for a long time and I figured that it gave me something to write about. DKTOS? Here’s a link to Devon Werkheiser's You Wear It Well.
We had faced another Great Depression
We are on the brink of deep recession
Cars and goods are under repossession
When our bills are overdue

It resulted into price inflation
That is happening across the nation
How can we deal with this sheer frustration?
When we can’t pay all our dues
(All our dues)

We’ve got bills to pay, got kids to feed
How can we afford the things that we need?
Struggling and struggling again and again

Can’t seek for jobs, there’s not one in sight
We scrape for food, day through the night
Eviction due to lack of rent
We’ve all gone straight to financial hell

Gas price sky-high, can’t fill up our tanks
Most homes are lost, foreclosed by banks
Stock price decreased, it’s hard to sell
We’re on the verge of financial hell

They robbed us well!

Can’t afford to send the kids to college
How can they find other paths to knowledge?
Insufficient funds caused people on edge
When we can’t earn enough dues
(Enough dues)

More bills piling up, it’s hard to save
We lost what we had, we gave all we gave
Spending and spending again and again

Can’t shop new clothes, can’t dine on some steak
Why won’t those banks give us a break?
Our funds had plummet down the well
We’re on the brink of financial hell

Most get laid off, eventually fired
Most folks find jobs hard to retire
Some pension plans had sunk as well
How can we deal with financial hell?

Everybody’s pitying themselves
Everyday, they’re asking for some help
How much can we take while in distress?
I don’t want to live this life
I just want to end this plight
I just want to see what happens next
With or without dues

We’re deep in debt, a slight credit crunch
Had we been spoiled, did we ask much?
We might get broke, that we can tell
God, help us through this financial hell!

Loans not approved, we don’t qualify
Must save our funds, must sacrifice
We’re forced to cede our goods to sell
So we can battle financial hell!

They taxed us well!

Our gas, our phones, our cars, our bills
Can’t fix our house, can’t catch a flick
We can’t live life like we used to
When will all this break through?
NOTE: This is not a remake of Rod Stewart's "You Wear It Well".

You've summed things up very well...although, I was hoping to see a light at the end of the parody, we've gotta' have hope... very well done. and.good to see you writing again

Thanks, AFW! :)...I do agree with you there. I understand that you were hoping to see the light at the end of this parody, but I was so blinded with reality that I didn't think of the positive side to this! My family's been power hungry about conserving energy and cutting down on shopping. I'm leaving it in God's hands to fix this economy. I'm also glad to be writing again.

I echo AFW's and Leo's comments, and although I am temporarily unemployed for the time being due to construction and subsequent extensive vandalism of my workplace, I should be OK for quite some time, between my rent being low and all-inclusive of everything but phone, TV and internet service (my phone and internet are bundled, and most of my TV watching is on Hulu), my car is low-maintenance and good on gas, and I am a thrifty shopper as far as groceries go. I will also try to collect unemployment. 5s.

Thanks, Leo and Andria! :)...Leo, glad you enjoyed! Thanks for v/c!...Andria, in spite of the fact that you're temporarily unemployed, I'm glad to hear that you should be OK and you're darn lucky at the fact that your rent is low including technological services! Thanks also for v/c!

Great job! My own recovery plan is massive financial subsidies for all parody writers. ;)

All these financial troubles make me worry about what Christmas will be like... 555 for this excellent, accurate parody.

Thanks, O.M. Ribber! :)...That would be very nice! I'm look forward to this recovery plan!! LOL!!...Thanks, DJ Blaze! :)...It got me thinking the same thing as well about Christmas! I'm one of those families going through this rough time, especially with my mom being a fanatic about saving money and all!...Arwen wrote a similar parody like this entitled "Where's All The Change?" today and did an excellent job with it!

Good year to count our blessings, which can still be found amid the troubles. Peace to you. :D

Thanks, Fiddlegirl! :)...That is so true! We should make the best of things around here. Peace to you, too!! :D

An accurate picture of trying times for many, good job Christie. Hope to see more from you soon. 555 parody writer bailouts.
Christie Marie M - November 23, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, blackjack21! :)...Lots of people had been through trying times far too many, like you said! Yesterday I had to split my steak with my bro so we could cut down on grocery shopping! Plus, I have this best friend trying to ask $260 from me lately because she moved out and things were screwed up for her ever since! I know I don't submit too much parodies often because I'm either busy or have writer's block. I submitted 15 parodies so far and I'm on the author's list. Thanks for v/c and the writer bailouts!! :)

no one cares. WE voters have the power, but the left wont police thier bad politicians, rather they enable them. did not the conservatives basically throw 2006 and 2008 by NOT ENABLING THIER s***TY REPUBLICANS? you want real change, stop enabling ALL THESE JERKS. I HATE BUSH TOO but my desire for good and justice drives me to focus on CHANGE, not just getting "my" party elected. this change happening now is killing most of us, and it'll get worse if you keep pouring gas on it. why lay down your power over bush who is gone? love is more powerful than hate if you want to go that way . . .

So, Rob....which one of those famous "Robs" are you, Rob Pinkston, Rob Reiner, or Rob Lowe? LOL (j/k) :)....Anyways, I don't recall saying anything about Bush or Republicans in this parody that I wrote! Maybe you must have been alerted to my comment in Lewis' "Tell Us More Lies" parody. Maybe I shouldn't have said anything about living under Bush's time back there. Anyways...I'm only guilty of relating the situation to my personal situation while I wrote this parody. When it comes to political/economical factors I have the tendency to be biased and judgmental. I should have researched it a lot further. But, hey, it's only a parody!

Very good assessment of the situation. You imply that we have mostly ourselves to blame, which is true, but I might have liked it better if you had blamed it on a political party, or one or more government or business entities. It would have annoyed some readers, but that is what parodies are all about.
Christie Marie M - January 31, 2010 - Report this comment
Thanks, John Jenkins! :)...You're right about blaming it on a political party, which I do. I didn't think to add that when I was writing this because I was in a rush at the time and didn't have time to research it further. When it comes to political factors, sometimes I tend to state biased facts. You're also right that it would annoy some readers, which I did few comments from yours.
