The Lyrics

Came across the website www.usdebtclock.org.....enough to drive a man to write a parody song about it.
It's been a long time and not getting any pretty
Our money is now lost and gone
And our bills are at an all time high

Borrowed dough years ago
For our spend addiction
From both China and Japan on loan
Now reaching zeros and trillions

Once the best now we are so much in debt
The U.S. clock that records the total will soon run out of spaces to spin
And if you go to that.org site
You won't be able to sleep tonight after watching those zeros and trillions

Zeros and trillions
Watching is no fun

Zeros and trillions
We owe the World tons

Red, White and Blue we're broke
Someone call our next of kin
Triple A-Rating a joke
All because of the zeros and trillions

My children are pissed
And my grandchildren will denounce
The USA, in disarray
As one day, Uncle Sam's checks will bounce

I've been on this site so long
So long to our credit
Our dollar has changed
And has been exchanged
For the first letter of $hit
Cause the Zeros and

Zeros and trillions
Watching is no fun

Zeros and trillions
We owe the World tons

Liked the double meaning of "so long" and the "denounce/bounce" rhyme.
