"The Ballad Of The Bailout Bill"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Sent in and produced for Q104.3 NYC
Come and listen to the story of a bailout bill,

Which job was designed to cure our country's ills,

McCain and Obama had both for once agreed

That it must get passed to fixl the banking needs

Now the bill came up and the Senate said OK,

Then it came to the House, and they looked the other way,

Just a few votes short for the place they want to be,

So the stock market crashed, and we sit in misery.

401K in the tank, good luck ya all.....

That's called The Ballad of Jed Clampitt

Yes. I knew that, and I was going to credit it as such, but it is also listed under the other title. I felt that would be more recognizable.
