The Lyrics

The recession is still here and biting everyone Jobs are going Unemployment is up and a degree you work hard for might not come to anything. So here's Hairy Toppings and Dirt (Mary Poppings and Bert) singing my parody for you ENJOY
When trying to better oneself, it helps if you’re a nerd
To sort through lengthy equations careers not deterred
You go to university an eager minded teen
You study and you pay your way, to achieve your degree

Many years of your hard work go flushing down the toilet
Loans you took to pay for it but now theirs no more business
Guess you earn minimum wage while working down at Tesco’s

Shitty situation this because of the recession
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye

Hairy Toppings:
When Bankers lent a Mortgage, thinking life would be so nice

Dirt:
If they did their homework, they would have thought about it twice

Mrs Gory:
And now the politicians, they all must be feeling stiff
And every unemployed person is heading for a cliff

Oh!
Shitty situation this because of the recession
Closing all the small business while bankers claim a pension

Hairy Toppings:
The boom and bust economy is something quite ridiculous

Gonna go and smoke a spliff pretend I’m on a spaceship
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye

Dirt:
A simple ounce of common sense their minds all made of clay

Mrs Gory:
That all the unsecured debt could lead to disarray

Hairy Toppings:
And choosing a career path when our countries hit or miss
And our government’s expenses do surely take the piss

Shitty situation this because of the recession

Hairy Toppings:
if you can’t accept the fact you might need some hypnosis

Dirt:
Selling drugs or crack cocaine could make you quite a fortune

Shitty situation this because of the recession
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye
Um-diddle-diddle-um-diddleye

Hairy Toppings:
Of course you can say it backwards, which is noissecer eht fo esauceb siht noitautis yttihs (don’t ask me what this says make up your own mind)

Hairy Toppings:
So now the rebuild work beings to fix economy
Much harder to get a job and theirs lots of company

Dirt:
You might become a shit shoveller and that’s a brilliant job
Or on the dole for your pay cheque becoming such a slob

Shitty situation this because of the recession (till the end of song)

Funny and bouncy song - good opposite of theme - very well done - I give you 5's to help get through the rough times.

I can relate to this situation. I'm frequently one of the individuals who are unemployed. I do enjoy your parodies a whole lot! This tells all about the recession. Hopefully I could land a permanent job as soon as I get back from my Florida vacation in a week or two. I got AS and BS degrees for Business Administration and still couldn't hold a job for long. I temped jobs all my life. I have to give you extra credit on working on a hard to pace parody! It's all good! 5's!

Thanks Timmy100 all the 5's the better, Christie it is annoying to be unemployed and I can sympathise with you on it thanks for the 5's although I was hoping for more comments on this this one especially as it is a mary poppins parody. And those who have done one can understand what i'm on about.

Great parody, Gari, and I will proudly say that I am employed as a direct-care staff at a home for the criminally insane who are on conditional release from the state psychiatric hospital, or are out of prison on parole, bond or what is called a capacity-based release (released from county jail due to overcrowding) with housing restrictions mandated by the parole officer, the district attorney or a judge. It's a tough job, but someone's got to do it! 5s all the way.

sounds like a barrel of laughs Andria, as long as you enjoy your work thats all that matters in it thanks for the comment. Being un-employed today especially is enough to drive me crazy lol.
